MANILA, Philippines — No more backriders on motorcycles in Quezon City.

The Quezon City Police District (QCPD) yesterday issued an order prohibiting motorists with a backrider within the city.

All police stations and ground units were directed to implement the order in their areas of jurisdiction.

The QCPD said the move is part of the community quarantine measures to avert the spread of coronavirus disease 2019.

The operations of motorcycle taxis have been suspended.

Public safety hours in Quezon City start from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. 

Mayor Joy Belmonte on Sunday signed an executive order implementing public safety hours to limit the movement of the residents. 

Residents are prohibited from wandering in public places, including churches and common areas of apartments and office buildings. 

Workers, authorized government officials and persons with medical concerns are exempted. 

Violators face charges under Republic Act 11332, which penalizes non-cooperation of persons or entities affected by a health event of public concern and resistance and disobedience to a person in authority.
