    tingin ko pag wala sa lugar yung pedestrian talo yan sa court....lalo na sa slex/nlex, major streets with ped xing...


    ang wlang laban ang motorists ay yung mga sa side streets..gaya ng mga vilages, subdivisions, national highways etc.

    tama ba?

    Kapag driver ka, kainis kapag maraming pedestrians na nag va violate ng rules, same way kapag pedestrian ka, kainis mga driver na walang alam sa traffic rules.

    Pag driver ako, inis ako sa mga pedestrians na tumatawid basta basta kung saan saan. But I still consider them to have the "right of way" all the time.

    Pag pedestrian ako, inis ako sa driver na ayaw magpatawid sa PEDESTRIAN LANE. Dapat sa mga ganong driver hindi binibigyan ng license!!! I wonder kung may nakakalam sa maraming drivers na when approaching a pedestrian lane dapat HUMINTO at patawirin ang pedestrians especially duon sa mga pedestrian lanes na WALANG traffic light.

    Disiplina lang yan eh. Sa Singapore nasa sidewalk pa lang ako sa may gutter malapit sa pedestrian lane, yung mga cars humihinto na, walang traffic light yun ha. Dito sa atin, nasa gitna ka na ng pedestrian lane BUBUSINAHAN KA NG MGA LINTEK NA DRIVERS NA YAN, TATARANTAHIN KA, IBIBLINKER KA PA, AT KAPAG NATUWA PA SAYO, PIPINAHAN KA PA SABAY MURA SAYO NA "ANG TANGA TANGA MO". Sino kaya ang mas tanga? Shempre I am talking about sa pedestrian lane na WALANG traffic light. Dahil kung may traffic light dapat sundin mo yun, just because nasa pedestrian lane ka doesnt mean pwede ka ng umastang parang princesang pwedeng tumawid kahit anong kulay nung traffic light.

    Pag pedestrian ako, nakakinis din yung mga kasabayan kong pedestrians, kasi tumatawid kahit stop pa, ang kadalasang nangyayari tuloy ako yung mukhang eng eng na mag isang nakatayo nag aantay mag green yung ilaw.

    i agree. and a vehicle should always stop or give way to pedestrians on a clearly marked pedestrian lane that has no stop light. yung iba talagang motorista kasi nakakabadtrip e. haharang sa pedestrian lane or di magpapatawid. kaya nangyayari e gantihan lang. hehe.

    well, to make it equal, if we free motorists from liability if they hit a pedestrian who is not crossing in the right place, then we should also allow a pedestrian to walk over, destroy a car or kill, injure or maim a driver if it/he/she is on the pedestrian lane or parked on the sidewalk. now that would be anarchy. hehehe

    Wala naman problema kung sa tamang tawiran e, i always slow down whenever i see a pedestrian crossing or intersection. Yun mga wala sa lugar tumawid yun nakakainis, i don't even care about my car kung masira at mabanga, what i care abt is my pasenger and myself. Hindi fair o well defined yun batas siguro. Pero may nabasa nga ako sa newspaper before that drivers are not liable for anything if the pedestrian is jaywalking. Gusto ko lang may mag confirm.

    Although I love to drive, I was also a pedestrian during most of my school years in the Philippines. During my time there, I've noticed that the big majority of pedestrians used overpasses and underpasses whenever possible. If there's a pedestrian light, the big majority of them crossed only when it's green and ok. This was back in the late70's and early 80's. If there has been a breakdown in discipline since then, I don't know. But, I've always leaned on yielding to pedestrians regardless of whether I'm in the right.

    The last place I drove similar to the Philippines would be Turkey which not only has a pedestrian discipline problem, but also problems with motor vehicles sharing the road with oxen and horse-drawn carts. I had to take it upon myself to be a defensive driver at all times, learning to avoid known chokepoints as much as possible and always on the lookout for the unexpected. There were a few days when the car I'm driving literally crawled all the way to wherever I was going. There were just so many pedestrians to deal with. But, that's just the way it is. Pedestrians do have the right of way in most countries whether they abuse the road or not.

    Abusive pedestrians have been part of Philippine culture since like forever. My Dad had to deal with it when we arrived in the mid-70's. I'm not surprised that it's still a problem now.

    Once the Philippines start really progressing and most EVERYONE has a car, then the real road problems will start. I've seen terrible road traffic in Seoul at the time S Korea's economy really took off in the early-mid 90's and almost every household had a car. Sometimes the traffic would be backed over 6 and 8-lane freeways all day. It paid to just leave the car at home and use Seoul's excellent subway system.

    There's a lot worse places in the world to drive than the Philippines.

    Nakasagi ako ng pedestrian the other day sa may Congressional. KULANG BA SA LAKI YUN OVERPASS DUN NA KULAY BLUE, AKO LANG BA NAKAKAKITA NUN????? Puro jeep at bus na nakaharang sa kalsada, pati tao nakikisingit pa. Sayang naman yun tax money na binayad dun sa overpass na yan. Kung binigay na lang sa mga pulis yun baka sana ganahan pa sila manghuli ng jaywalking at illegal loading/unloading dun. Hay!
