I've noticed that motorcycles in Manila has increased tremendously this year. And motorcycle riders drive so recklessly without any thought of how they're endangering their lives, not to mention those of other people.
Here are some observations, which motorcycle riders should take note of, to keep themselves and other people safe on the street.
Don't Use The Sidewalk - Only stup*d drivers do this. And there are a lot of them in Manila. Who cares if you're already late for work or an appointment? Leave early next time so you don't endanger those walking on the sidewalk. They have every right to use the sidewalk and you riding your motorcycle don't!
Helmet - If you're using one that the , then you're bound to crack that skull of yours if you fell of that bike, hopefully not, accidentally.
Overtaking Is Bad - I feel horrified everytime I see a motorcycle zooming, zygzagging and overtaking other vehicles on the street. I only see stunt people do that in the movies. In real life, no director will shout "Cut!", so drive safely on the road.
