AN­GE­LES CITY - In or­der to keep the roads safe for mo­torists and pedes­tri­ans from un­ruly bik­ers, Par­tido Abe Ka­pam­pan­gan’s can­di­date for coun­cilor Jose Aubrey “Kuya Jay” Pe­layo IV vowed to get rid of the so called “kamote” rid­ers through proper train­ing.

Be­ing the pres­i­dent of the Metro An­ge­les City Jour­nal­ists As­so­ci­a­tion, Inc., Pe­layo has re­ported that al­most 70 per­cent of road ac­ci­dents in An­ge­les City in­volve sin­gle mo­tor­cy­cles.

Pe­layo, a ra­dio an­chor for block­time pro­gram “Agyu Tamu, An­geleños” on GV99.1FM, re­vealed that some of the own­ers of the wrecked mo­tor­cy­cles that are parked near the traf­fic man­age­ment and en­force­ment unit have died due to in­juries they sus­tained.

“I am a rider too but I had the op­por­tu­nity to un­dergo mo­tor­cy­cle train­ing be­fore rid­ing along thor­ough­fares, and I want to share the same op­por­tu­nity to my fel­low An­geleño rid­ers,”Pe­layo sai d.

One of the pro­grams Pe­layo is plan­ning if he wins a seat at the city coun­cil is to cre­ate an or­di­nance to pro­vide free safety driv­ing to new mo­tor­cy­cle own­ers and rid­ers in this highly ur­ban­ized city.

Pe­layo said that he al­ready got the nod from var­i­ous mo­tor­cy­cle clubs, rider clubs, bike en­thu­si­asts, teach­ers and par­ents af­ter learn­ing about his pr ogr am.

He added: “We will not only be able to save the lives of the rid­ers but also save their fam­ily mem­bers as well as those who are just walk­ing along the streets.” (Press Re­lease)
