The newly-designed motorcycle plates comply with the requirements of Republic Act 11235, the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act. The plates come with safety features such as RFID sticker, QR Code and reflectorized sheeting.
During the ceremonial launch, NCR West officials unveiled the Moving Forward Project which begins this September and will see the OR/CR and plates of motorcycles purchased simultaneously released to respective dealers.
The officials said this is aimed to cut-off the backlog on plates.
