CA: Mandaluyong ordinances vs male backriders on motorcycles ‘unconstitutional’
Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, October 27) — The Court of Appeals has declared as “unconstitutional” a number of Mandaluyong City ordinances barring male backriders on motorcycles.
Mandaluyong Ordinance Nos. 550 S-2014, 595 S-2015, and 694 S-2018 only allow females, spouses, male relatives within the first degree of consanguinity, children aged seven to 10 years old, and all members of the Philippine National Police Tactical and Mobile Unit and the Station Tactical Motorist Reaction Unit assigned in the city to backride on motorcycles.
The ordinances aim to prevent crimes allegedly committed by motorcycle-riding criminals.
But the CA Fifth Division said the ordinances were “oppressive” as there is no statistical data presented before the court to show that motorcycle-riding criminals are males.
