MANILA — The Philippine Movie and Television Review Classification Board is waging a war against porn on city buses.

The Board has asked the Senate for about $50,000 to paste stickers on the city’s 35,000 public utility vehicles that include buses to warn against porn being shown on board.

According to the Inquirer, Board chairperson Grace Poe-Llamanzares said the agency wants to post stickers inside the vehicles in metro Manila urging passengers to report any bus that's showing adult material.

Each sticker costs about $1.40.

Poe-Llamanzares said the MTRCB already has a monitoring agreement with bus companies.

“The bus companies are aware of this already because the implementation began in June. The advisory would be for the passenger. The sticker would carry a number the passenger can call to alert authorities about offending buses.”

The report said the government plans to allot about $1 million to the MTRCB for various projects in 2012.
