Starting August 2020, LTO mandated applicants for new student permits to undergo mandatory 15-hour driving seminar. If you are living around Makati, Taguig, Pateros, and other neighboring areas, here’s a driving school near you that’s accredited by LTO to conduct Theoretical Driving and Practical Driving Courses: iLean Driving School.
This motorcycle rider thinks he’s Superman
Have you ever wondered how come a lot of motorcycle riders figure in tragic accidents? For driving like this one in this video:
So, for motorcycle riders out there, please remember these things the next time you hit the road with your two-wheel vehicles:
- Wear your helmet/s;
- Make sure that all your lights (headlight, taillight, brake lights, and turn lights) are working especially at night;
- Do not counterflow, and if you do–don’t expect the oncoming car to yield in your favor;
- When you overtake and eventually change lanes ahead of the vehicle you’re overtaking, do it like a responsible four-wheeled vehicle would do, i.e., provide enough space and use your left/right turn signal lights (make sure those signal lights are visible to the driver behind). Anticipate that the vehicle behind might accelerate even before you make your turn for not seeing you ahead of time.
Seen Only in Surigao
Or maybe, at least, so far, I only get to see this in Surigao.
It’s like a motorcycle with wings. Its wings from both sides are designed to hold passengers. In Surigao, these are usually employed in order to get to the mountains where no passenger jeepneys can go. Locals say it can hold up to 10 passengers in one trip, depending on the size/weight of each passenger.
