Biker Babe

Nasipat ko sya habang naglalakad kami sa San Francisco. Yung mama na nasa kotse, parang naiinggit sa kanya. Talaga namang dapat syang mainggit sa pink helmet at pink na jacket!


Ang sarap sigurong mag-motor doon. Maliban sa malalapad ang kalye, disiplinado ang mga driver. Cagers o riders, parehong mga responsable sa daan. Isandaang ulit na mas ligtas para sa riders ang mga kalye doon.

Hindi ko masisisi ang mga Kano kung ganito ang statement ng kanilang embassy tungkol sa traffic conditions dito:

"Travel within the archipelago is possible by boat, plane or car. Traffic conditions are often crowded and chaotic. Drivers routinely ignore stoplights, lane markers and other traffic control devices and traffic rules are rarely enforced. As in most places where traffic is highly congested and under-regulated, driving in the Philippines requires maximum attention and patience to avoid accidents. Vehicles on the road include automobiles, trucks and buses as well as manually-operated tricycles and carts. Due to a lack of navigable sidewalks, pedestrians also use the road in most areas. Many roads are in disrepair, with large potholes; roads under repair are often not clearly marked or identified and may be a significant hazard, especially at night. Lower-lying roads will frequently be flooded after even a light rain, making it difficult to see holes and other obstacles. During the rainy season, roads at higher elevations sometimes experience landslides.

Pedestrians should exercise extreme caution when crossing roads. Driving off the national highways and paved roads is particularly dangerous, especially at night. Taxis are plentiful and inexpensive by U.S. standards, and are the recommended form of public transportation. All other forms of public transportation, including the light rail and jeepneys, should be avoided for both safety and security reasons.

Safety of Public Transportation: Poor
Urban Road Conditions/Maintenance: Poor
Rural Road Conditions/Maintenance: Poor
Availability of Roadside/Ambulance Assistance: Poor "

Kasi totoo rin naman. Medyo hindi na accurate na irecommend lang ang taxi at not recommended ang jeep at MRT pero dahil nga sa gulo ng bigger picture, hahayaan ko na lang mapraning ang mga kano.

Walang komento:
