President Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. on Thursday, April 18, ordered the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) and all local government units to give a grace period to the prohibited eletronic vehicles and tricycles on national roads in Metro Manila.

"Ngayong araw na ito, iniutos ko sa MMDA at sa lahat ng lokal na pamahaalan sa Metro Manila na bigyan ng palugit ang mga e-bikes, e-trikes, at iba pang apektadong sasakyan na dumadaan sa ilang tukoy na daan sa Metro Manila," Marcos wrote in an X (formerly Twitter) post.

"Kailangan pang magbigay ng sapat na panahon para sa malawak na pagsisiwalat ng impormasyon hinggil sa ban na ating ipinapatupad," he added.

Meanwhile, Marcos noted that the policy under MMDA Regulation No. 24-022 series of 2024 will still be maintained.

The grace period will cover the non-ticketing, fines, and impounding of the violator's vehicles.

"Kung paparahin man sila, ito ay upang maayos na maituro ang mga kalsadang maari nilang gamitin, pati na ang pagpapaalala ng mga bagong patakaran na ipinapatupad upang paigtingin ang kaligtasan at kaayusan sa mga langsangan," the President said.

In a video posted by the Presidential Communications Office, Marcos said he ordered to give at least a one-month extension for the public to be aware of the new rules and regulations in Metro Manila's major roads.

"At saka 2,500 rin ang laking multa niyan at napakabigat rin niyan para sakanila so bigyan natin sila ng isang buwan para alam nila kung ano yung dapat nila gawin," said the Chief Executive.
