MDPPA to Implementation of Motorcycle Barriers: “Any additional fixture, such as the one proposed by Gov. Yap, will negatively affect stability and handling of a motorcycle

MDPPA finally released a statement regarding the installation of the motorcycle barrier in between the driver and backrider.

Over the past few weeks, thousands of Filipino motorists are complaining against the pillion metal shield. The public lambasted the proposed barrier because it can affect the aerodynamics that may compromise the driver’s safety.

The Philippine government explained that the barrier aims to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease in the country. However, only married couples are allowed to ride together although the barriers are installed.

Recently, the Motorcycle Development Program Participants Association Inc. (MDPPA) said that all member brands including Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki and Yamaha undergo years of careful planning and design.

MDPPA explained that teams of engineers conduct a study on the design and mechanism of motorcycles to ensure the safety of the motorcycle riders. The team revealed that additional fixtures would compromise the driver’s safety.

“Any additional fixture, such as the one proposed by Gov. Yap, will negatively affect stability and handling of a motorcycle, thus, inevitably compromising safety of its occupants,” MDPPA said.

The group also said that there is no scientific data that could support claims that the barrier could prevent the spread of COVID-19. Wearing a face mask and at least half-face helmets are already good to avoid the possible exposure to the virus.
