    well, if the act carries with it a potential citation and fine, then "we should not".
    my guess is, the limitation is there for safety considerations. his as well as ours.

    FWD cars nowadays, whether a/t or m/t, are not really that fun to drive & may even be downright dangerous on slippery roads. FWD cars suffer from “understeer” when driven too fast on a slippery corner. RWD cars, on the other hand, tend to “oversteer” but is more controllable by a skilled driver and adds to the fun factor. In my youth, the family had a Dodge Colt 1.6 rear wheel driven. During summers, Makati would pour sand on the asphalt roads to keep the asphalt from melting. Everyday, when I would bring & fetch my Mom, I would play around, oversteer & drift the car around sweeping corners. My mom was oblivious to this but once asked me “O, bakit tabingi tayo?”

    if it ain't fun enough, you but have to step on the gas harder.
    some like it, others do not.
    AT versus MT has always been a personal choice.

    Ignorance has its costs. Back when we were planning to buy our 1st AT, we thought our "Manual" DLwe had to have that AT restriction and it was timely then that a fixer was visiting our office. Well you all know what happened next. The fixer took our money and together with her cohorts in a faraway LTO office, made us take a written exam with answers provided.

    Totally Agree for that Sir bloowolf..

    Either FWD/RWD/AWD/4WD(fulltime)

    kahit anong sasakyan at transmission..

    Sobra-sobra ang safety features ng ABS/EBD/Stability-Traction Control..

    "murphy's law" ang kalalabasan...

    Negligence at Irresponsible... dyan at dyan talaga papasok ang matinding problema..
