You’ve probably heard of the new single ticketing system by now after the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA), the Land Transportation Office (LTO), and select local government units (LGU) have started their pilot implementation.

There are tons of violations and fines that a motorist can get under the new Single Ticketing System, from disregarding traffic signs, illegal parking, unauthorized modifications, and more.


Also part of the list is the proper dress code, but its scope can still be confusing to some motorists, especially motorcycle riders.

Previously, law enforcement will only pull over motorcycles if the rider is wearing slippers. However, under the single ticketing system, the pillion riders or back-ride passengers are also required to wear the proper footwear — which means they’re not exempted from the no-slippers rule.

This ruling is under the LTO Administrative Order No. 2008-015 called ‘Rules and regulations for the use and operation of motorcycles on highways,’ which penalizes riders for wearing slippers, flip flops, sandals, or barefoot while operating a scooter or motorcycle on a road or highway.
