According to this report, Manila officials have banned Christmas carolers.
“The plan, controversial as it might be, is not done out of whim but rather for the safety of the children and the motorists,” an official said.
Last year a child was killed when he was run over by a speeding truck.
The rule effectively bans street kids from slum areas from knocking on vehicle windows on busy streets asking for cash while caroling.
Caroling in suburban areas where carolers would not affect road traffic is still allowed.
