Will take effect 6 July.  A few minutes from now.  Are we aware of the new law?

Nothing on this link.  However, the fine is stiff. 5K pesos for 1st offense.

Apologies, it worked when I looked it up, below link is to the news article.

If it's enforced like the "no bald tires" law, everyone is safe.

It is enforced alright (do not have an idea about bald tires).  Watching local news, they ticketed more than 100 drivers.  %K pesos a piece.  However, It is only enforced in EDSA or Metro Manila it seems.  If you live in the provinces, I do not think that they will be enforcing this law.  however, use caution!
