No Children on Front Passenger Seat

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

The local government of Quezon City has passed an ordinance on November 27 that sanctions motorists for allowing infants and small children younger than six years old on the front passenger seat of a moving vehicle. Fine may be as much p3,000 plus suspension of driver’s license. The city ordinance is to be enforced 15 days from the said date. The rest of the news article is here.

I think this is good step for the QC government, and I say it’s about time they enforce this. I don’t know if other cities have this already but it would be nice if the whole country will have the same strict enforcement of this one – not because it is part of the seatbelt law but more on letting parents realize that it is never safe to let children ride shotgun.
