Degamo mulls helmet law
Negros Oriental Gov. Roel Degamo said yesterday he will request the Land Transportation Office for a moratorium in the implementation of the mandatory helmet law in Dumaguete City during the Palarong Pambansa meet from April 21 to 27.
He said he will ask the LTO to temporarily suspend its operation against the non-wearing of helmets in Dumaguete City, as the police will have their hands full in ensuring the safety and security of athletes, delegates and visitors.
Negros Oriental provincial police director, Senior Supt. Noli Romana, said it will be very difficult to apprehend hundreds of motorists for violating the helmet law when only a handful of policemen were deputized by the LTO to enforce the traffic laws.
