House Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas is seeking to penalize the throwing of hard objects at motor vehicles.
The Ilocos Norte politiko’s proposed measure was recently approved on third and final reading.
Fariñas said multiple accidents have been recorded because of unscrupulous persons throwing hard objects at motor vehicles.
“In the process, accidents result, putting the lives and limbs of passengers and damaging the vehicle itself. This practice has to be abated,” he said.
Fariñas explained penalizing the act will ensure the well-being of travellers, drivers, and owners of vehicles.
