Requiring all motorcycles to fit a license plate both in front and behind, the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act of 2017 is now undergoing a bicameral. Estimated to be approximately 200 mm x 225 mm, the new plate size is larger than the standard plate for motorcycles.

According to ROTP, the proposed double plate bill is unsafe for the rider if improperly mounted. The group also added that the “Double Plaka” law discriminates motorcycle riders as it depicts that all of them are potential criminals.
