Lesson learned! Rex Gatchalian returns bikes of ECQ violators
The bicycle riders who defied the ban on biking during the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) last month now have their wheels back.
Valenzuela Mayor Rex Gatchalian has ordered the return of the bikers’ bikes as Metro Manila shifted to a more relaxed modified ECQ (MECQ).
In a Facebook post, Gatchalian said the bikers have learned their lessons after rendering community service and having their bikes confiscated.
“Remember them??? Sila yung mga pasaway na bikers na we caught during the height of ECQ. They have served their community service by repacking. Then we kept their bikes during ecq. They have learned their lessons na. Their bikes have been returned na,” he said.
Gatchalian had the bikers apprehended in April after they were caught cycling along Mindanao Avenue, part of which falls withi Valenzuela’s jurisdiction.
