FIFTEENTH CONGRESS OF THE REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES
First Regular Session
Introduced by Senator Miriam Defensor Santiago
EXPLANATORY NOTE

In an article published by the Philippine Daily Inquirer on 21 April 2007, it was reported
that the World Health Organization (WHO) is considering deaths and injuries from motorcycleaccidents as a "public health epidemic" in many countries in Asia, including in the Philippines.
In its report, the WHO said nearly 1.2 million persons die of road traffic accidents every year, 40 percent of which are under the age of 25. Between 20 million and 50 million are injured every year. Young motorcyclists make up a significant percentage of injuries and fatalities among users in many Asian countries. The report also identified overspeeding, non-use of helmets, risktaking behavior, and drunk -driving as factors which contribute to the rising trend. An Asian Development Bank (ADB) report on road safety in the Philippines said that pedestrians were most at risk of being killed or injured in a road accident. Motorcyclists were a far second, but the report said they were a "growing concern" as the number of motorcycles has been growing by 40 percent per year in the last three years. According to the Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), the Metropolitan Road Safety Unit of their Traffic Operations Center made a report on the distribution of vehicles involved in accidents from January to December 2006. The report showed that motorcycles have the highest fatality accident rate with 122 motorcycles involved or 23.60 per cent of the total fatal accidents, followed by cars with I13 total or 21.86 per cent respectively. For non-fatal accidents, cars have the highest rate with 30.22 per cent share followed by motorcycles with 29.59 per cent. It is imperative that a law be passed to establish guidelines that will prevent road accidents , particulary those involving motorcycles.
