From all the crazy laws politicians come up with to satisfy their own enormous egos, this one has got to be the biggest, most stupidest, law every. This goes into the history books.

The politicians in Manila, Philippines are planning to 1) ban pillions from riding (in other words, you are not allowed to bring anyone on your motorcycle) and 2) make it mandatory to wear your motorcycle's license plate on the back of you jacket/vest.

On what planet do these politicians live? Imagine having two or more motorcycles? And in a poor country, where motorcycles are often the only affordable means of transportation, where whole families are to be found on the bike ... this means that can't go to work.

What a crazy world we live in.
