    2.) Ang pag busina ng matagal ay isang senyales ng anger and aggression which is a no no sa isang corteous driver.

    3.) And dun naman sa pedestrian mali din sya dahil nasa gitna sya ng kalsada pero di mo rin dapat isisisi sa kanya kung baket nasa gitna sya ng kalsada. Since nasagi mo siya ang may mali at kung matindi ang batas dito sa Pilipinas na parang sa Amerika (sampa dito sampa dun) malamang malaki ang posibilidad mo na matalo.
    If this is the case then let's get rid of sidewalks, pedestrian crossings and overpasses and walkways. Years ago yun cousin ko nasa Germany bumaba sa sidewalk dahil iniwasan yun street musician, ayun na sideswipe ng isang benz. Nabalian ng arm, plaster cast then binayaran pa niya yun motorist kasi nagkarun ng dent yun benz. The point here is that there should be order. Kaya tayo bumubusina ng matagal is to let the pedestrian know that it would be impossible to stop or avoid them at the speed we are at. I wouldn't have second thoughts of leaving that "addict" if I hit him. I'm probably doing society a favor by getting rid of him.

    What Motorists Should Know About Pedestrian Rights
    Yield to Pedestrians

    When you meet a pedestrian, who has the right of way? Motorists must yield to pedestrians in the street at all times. Yielding means slowing down for pedestrians who are crossing the street and passing them at a safe distance. Show courtesy by giving pedestrians as much room as you would like drivers to give to you when you're on foot.

    Respect Crosswalks

    * Yield to pedestrians at all crosswalks-marked and unmarked.
    * Know where all crosswalks are. Crosswalks exist on all four corners of most intersections in Boulder-whether or not they are marked.
    * Crosswalks are also located wherever paths and streets connect. Paths and streets that are parallel to each other require extra caution. Look for pedestrians, cyclists, and skaters from unexpected directions.


    Intersections With Signals

    * Yield to pedestrians crossing the intersection.
    * Do not stop in the crosswalk. Instead, stop behind the stop bar so that pedestrians can cross the street safely.
    * Obey signage. Many intersections in Boulder's downtown prohibit right turn on red.
    * When turning right on red, stop for pedestrians who are crossing from either side of the street.
    * When turning left, watch for pedestrians as well as oncoming traffic.


    Intersections Without Signals

    * At intersections without signals, pedestrians always have the right of way.
    * When pedestrians show an intention to cross the street by stepping off the curb, you must stop and allow them to cross.
    * When turning right or left at an intersection without a signal, look for pedestrians crossing from any direction before you start your turn.


    Safety Tips

    * At night or during bad weather, be especially alert for pedestrians. Remember that people on foot are exposed to the weather and may be in a hurry to find shelter.
    * Before you pull out of a driveway, parking lot, or garage you must stop behind the sidewalk and check for pedestrians who might be using the sidewalk.


    You're A Pedestrian Too.

    A little courtesy goes along way. Remember what it's like to be on foot, and how much you appreciate it when a motorist yields to you.

    kaya malalakas ang loob ng mga pedestrian kasi alam nila pag nabunggo sila ikaw ang sasagot at may oppurtunity sila magkapera huwag lang sila mamamatay. Pero kung ang law ay iba, katulad ng pag hindi sila tumawid sa tamang lugar at nasagasaan sila, fault nila magbabago yun mga yan.

    yung pedestrians walking sa street medyo tolerable pa. di gaano ang risk. Kakainis ay yung mga tao na mahilig tumawid sa C-5 lalo na at night! They think nakikita sila ng motorist.

    binubusinahan ko ng matagal itong mga engot na pedestrian. Nakakainis din yung mga tumatawid na hindi tumitingin tapos magugulat tapos mumurahin ka pa

    Inis din ako sa mga taong tumatawid kahit red light na yung pedestrian stop light tapos kung maglakad parang rumarampa sa cat walk:mad:

    sa 9 de pebrero in mandaluyong (shaw leading to/from maysilo) may 3 foot high concrete divider and meron pang mga nakatanim na bushes sa ibabaw. hala, mga tao bigla na lang tatakbo patawid para makabwelo makaakyat ng divider.

    worse, minsan di mo kita, may nakatuntong sa divider sa likod ng bush. gulat ka na lang biglang may tatalon sa daan para makatawid. driving challenge talaga. on the right side, sige ang mga bata naglalaro.

    kaya ako dahan dahan lang takbo.

    pre what I'm quoting is from a handbook on how to drive in Pinas. And it clearly states there that even if the pedestrian is out of his way we should always give courtesy to them.

    A corteous driver practices only 1 or 2 beeps to warn any living thing to get out of the road but beeping for long is a sign of anger ang agression which is a no no if a driver practices road courtesy.

    tinanong ng tito ko kay angelito vergel de dios tungkol sa nangyar sa akin kahapon... mas malakas daw ako kung magfafile ako ng case.... first and foremost, according to the mmda, the streets and roads are not the right-of-way of the pedestrians.. second, sa don antonio road malaki ang sidewalk kasya 3 persons... kaya nga may wet flag campaign ang mmda para madisiplina mga pedestrians na wag gamitin ang mga kalsada sa paglalakad maliban sa pagtawid.... yung tito ko na PD ng mindoro also said na hindi ako matatalo kasi nasa right-of-way ako... tsaka ang busina ko is beep-beeeep!! one short and one 5 sec long syempre ako na young driver pa lang natatakot na mabangga i did honk my horn and step on the brakes really hard....
