5 Ways To Make Roads Safer For Filipinos #RoadSafetyPH

I recently attended a Road Safety Idea Hack Forum held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

The event was sponsored by GRAB Philippines and The World Bank with the over-all aim of getting some fresh new recommendations on how to make the streets more safer for Filipinos.


We were asked to make recommendations, and here are my 2cents on #roadsafetyph:

✔ No need for new laws, just strictly enforce all #LTO & #LTFRB regulations - wag kasi gawing negosyo.

✔ Regulate number and type of service vehicles in specific areas. e.g. Pag may bumibyahe na jeep or bus sa isang lugar ipagbawal na ang tricycle at padyak. Likewise, kung maliit naman ang kalye sa isang lugar ipagbawal ang pag byahe ng mga jeep at ipalit ang tricycle at padyak.. pero dapat bilang ang dami ng mga bumibyahe at walang colorum.


✔ Fast Track developments of mass transport systems (PNR, LRT, MRT) yun mga corporation na nagpapabagal at humahadlang, pagbayarin ng fees sa taong bayan for the cost of delay!


✔ Coding schemes should be applied to all private and non-service vehicles pati mga motorcycles and scooters to help ease traffic and encourage people to take mass transport systems.


✔ Lastly, magkaroon sana ng system kung saan pwede ipagbawal ang pagbibigay ng lisensya sa mga tanga, bangag, may topak at mga mainitin ang ulo na drivers.

Yun lang. I thank You.

Let's Talk About Priorities


Let's TALK priorities:

✔ Yun sing laki ng bagong bili na flatscreen LED TV ang buong dingding ng bahay/kwarto/kusina/sala/cr n'yo

✔ Yun sa tricycle nakatira buong pamilya mo, halos walang damit at makain pero lahat kayo may cellphone kahit si bunso

✔ Yun isang-kahig, isang-tuka na parang chairman kung magpainom tuwing sweldo pero ipina-pangutang ang ulam sa araw araw

✔ Yun mas mabilis ka pa magpalit ng cellphone kaysa sa toothbrush

✔ Yun mayor at mayora sa social media dahil sa dami ng friends at followers pero sa totoong buhay... me, myself and I
