[Breaking] Anti-Distracted Driving Act immediately suspended - MMDA

MMDA, just released an official statement that Anti-Distracted Driving Act is immediately suspended!

The law meant to prohibit the use of phones or gadgets while driving underwent scrutiny over social media after netizens find that the implementation of the law was too much. Drivers and partners of TNVS companies such as Grab and UBER were deeply affected by the Anti-Distracted Driving law  as they also use their phones to navigate and be able to drive their riders to their destination safe and sound

To respond to the call of both Houses of Congress to defer the implementation of ADDA, the Department of Transportation (DOTr), Land Transportation Office (LTO), Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB), Metro Manila Development Authority (MMDA), and the PNP Highway Patrol Group (HPG) take heed to the Congress, being the authors of the law, to defer the enforcement of Republic Act 10913 or the Anti-Distracted Driving Act (ADDA).
Relative thereto, the DOTr shall immediately revive its Technical Working Group to conduct a review of the IRR in coordination with concerned stakeholders.
An Information and Education Campaign (IEC) shall commence as soon as the new IRR is crafted.
In the meantime, we invite the public to continue the constructive discussion on this new law so as to contribute on how we could all better promote road safety, discipline, and responsible driving

The suspension of ADDA was done to make sure that the grey/black/white area can be cleared. Still we advise to prohibit phone using their phones for making a call, sms or just to simply check their Facebook updates. Keep our eyes on the road at all times!
