Artes previously said that violators will be fined PHP 2,500, while their units will also be impounded if e-bike users are not able to present a driver’s license upon apprehension.

Prior to this, MMDA together with the Land Transportation Office (LTO) bared their plans to require electric motor vehicles to be registered.

This came after the use of e-trikes and e-bikes on major thoroughfares has been prohibited since they slow down traffic and threaten public safety.
