Obviously, these guys are bodyguards. Anyway, there they were driving along Ayala going up the flyover to EDSA with their blinkers and hazards on. Then this bike cop pulls up beside them and exchanges a few words with them. Instead of pulling them over because of illegal use of blinkers, he ends up acting as an escort.

Hay naku!

P.S. Giving them credit, mabait naman sila magmaneho.

Sorry for not posting, guys. The whole team has been pretty busy, and it's taking up so much of our time to maintain the blog.

Anyways, we received a few emails regarding the new rules for attaching commemorative plates, so we decided to post an excerpt from the commemorative plate thread on AutoIndustriya:

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

The Traffic Management Group (TMG) released yesterday new rules on the use of commemorative plates as part of the government's effort to continue the implementation of its "no plate, no travel" policy.

TMG director Chief Superintendent Perfecto Palad said the new rules are part of the amendment of the Department of Transportation and Communications - Land Transportation Office (DOTC-LTO) administrative order governing the use and issuance of commemorative plates.

The TMG said motorists who replace their regular plates with commemorative ones violate the rules. But under the new set of rules, Palad said a "commemorative plate shall be installed in front of a motor vehicle either at the right side or left side of the regular plate. As such the regular plate shall be maintained in the space provided for the purpose. Removal thereof shall be deemed a violation of this order."

The LTO said there are currently only 18 authorized commemorative plates in the country.

Palad said no commemorative plate shall be installed in the rear of a motor vehicle, and the accompanying sticker must be pasted on the upper right hand corner of the front windshield.
