    I was at the park a little before noon today, and told they were out of stickers and I should return on Tuesday Morning. Friday I was was there about 4:30 and they said to come back on Monday... as least they did not say they did not know when they would get them..... It is more FUNk in the Philippines.

    The Department of Trade and Industry yesterday resumed the inspection, registration, and issuance of Import Commodity Clearance stickers of motorcycle helmets for free, Reginald Hudierez, DTI development specialist and registration officer, said.

    DTI personnel stopped the registration Monday after motorists complained about the P101.25 inspection fee required.

    Hudierez said they resumed the operation after they received the order from the Bureau of Prodcut Standards yesterday, from its director, Vicente Mendoza.

    The order, however, states that the free helmet registration will only be up to September 30.

    Hudierez was silent about why the DTI is collecting fees for registration of the helmets, saying they just follow orders from their head office.

    Those who have paid the fee will be refunded but only after further instructions, since the DTI is prioritizing the inspection, registration, and issuance of ICC stickers, he also said.

    Parts of the helmet that DTI personnel inspect are the neck curtain, comfort padding, protective padding, the shell, retention system or chin strap, edge trim, and chin and cheek padding.

    Hudierez also said they do not approve units that have scratches, too many stickers, cracks, or have dilapidated parts.

    Helmets used for biking are not allowed for motorcycle driving, he added.*LTG

    Was told by a guy at DTI via email on Thursday afternoon about the stickers at the park mission. Went there at 8:00 a.m. Friday (yesterday) and was informed they had no stickers. It IS more fun in the Philippines. In the words of Forrest Gump, .....you never know what your going to get (or not get).
    When they do finally implement this helmet law, I am going to be driving my car a lot more. Who wants to wear long jeans, socks and shoes, helmet etc. in the hot weather here? not I. I was thinking about buying a new bike but, not now. A one size fits all law won't work. Fine for driving on EDSA but seriously, going 3 miles per hour in the city? How is putting a helmet on an unskilled rider going to help?

    A way to eliminate lines.

    By not buying you may eliminate the line of buying and then the second line for the visit to get the 100 P back. It took me three trips to get the sticker, one time said they were too busy and come back the next day, two, the next day they had no stickers, third time was a charm.....so I imagine about 5 trips to get back the 100 pesos...hm...20 pesos a trip....

    In one newpaper it was written that the first offense will be a warning to get a sticker....what day are they coming out with the announcement that they will not enforce it at all and we have to return the stickers, again while waiting in line.

    You left out the part about being charged P100 for processing in order to give the stickers back!

    I'll go back tomorrow if for no other reason than to increase traffic volume. The guy at DTI that was so prompt in returning my emails suddenly fell of the face of the earth when I let him know we went as instructed and there were no stickers.

    the MRO, a group for moving the rights of motorcyclists is working out with the government the grace period extension of this August 1 nationwide implementation of the helmet law because there are too much helmets to be given stickers in so short a time.

    and as said in the previous posts the stickers are FREE until September 30.

    It is easy to give away free stickers, especially when you don't have any. Went this a.m. (Monday) after being told Friday to return Monday only to be told to return tomorrow (Tuesday), no stickers. I wonder if they take into consideration the hidden costs of this law that few want. 3 trips so far to Dgte, lots of wasted fuel, unnecessary traffic, etc. Still no reply from the helpful DTI contact. Who is it exactly that wants this law?
