In the capital of the Philippines, Manila, the local political bosses for the MMDA Open link in a new window have been drinking or smoking a bit too much. Their minds are at a loss on how to solve the wave of snatch & ride crimes. This consists of (usually) youngsters riding on a motorcycle or scooter, snatching the purse/handbag/briefcase of a pedestrian and riding away.

So what do the political geniuses decide to do; they are preparing a law that forces every motorcycle rider to PAINT THE LICENSE PLATE ON THEIR HELMET ! Sorry for shouting, but if it wasn't so stupid it would actually be funny.

Imagine that you need to put the license plate number in the front AND the back of your helmet. Like that's going to stop criminals from doing what they're doing. That's like passing a law that says you're not allowed to steal something! Crazy Smiley

What do you do if you've got more than one motorcycle, but only one helmet??

Anyway, it never ceases to amaze me how stupid these political animals are.
