Secretary Mar Roxas Falls Off Motorbike Photo: No Safety Helmet
Sumemplang ngunit hindi nasaktan ang Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary na si Mar Roxas when he fell off his motorbike while on his way to inspect areas affected by Typhoon Hagupit.
The accident happened along Taft, in Eastern Samar as Secretary Mar Roxas was on his way to the town of Dolores.
Netizens quickly made a fuss of the faceplant photo. It made the viral rounds because Secretary Manuel “Mar” Roxas II’ wasn't wearing a safety helmet. Mar Roxas was the former Department of Transportation and Communications (DOTC) Secretary which campaign for the implementation of the Helmet Law.
Republic Act 10054 or the Motorcycle Helmet Act of 2009 mandates motorcycle riders to wear the said protective gear.
