The security minister has declined to support immediately a proposal to prohibit two persons on one motorcycle.
The prohibition was advanced by Francisco Segura Montero, director of the Judicial Investigating Organization. He did so because many robberies and murders are done by the passenger on a motorcycle.
The security minister, Gustavo Mata Vega, did support a proposal to have motorcycle drivers wear a vest displaying the license number of the vehicle. He also said he wants to prohibit helmets that hide completely the wearer’s face.
But of the one-person rule, he said the issue needs more study so as not to violate the rights of motorcyclists. He said most were good people.
