hindi naman sa pang aano pero malabo talagang maging katapat ng pinas ang SG.... it will practically be next to impossible for that to happen.
there has to be a change in the mindset of the people, I mean everyone blames everyone else instead of looking at themselves :huh:

and people don't have the patience for progress, they just want it now, take a look at how many years did SG take to become what they are now, also for South Korea, Japan etc...

there are no shortcuts to true progress

And that mindset has to be instilled early on into the culture for it to thrive and benefit the masses of future generations. SG didn't start out as a very disciplined nation early on, there were rules and penalties implemented long before that made it into a country like it has become now.

If the same thing was about to be done for pinas, it's already too late into the game for the rules to change.

There's this thing called MMDA Children's Road Safety Park where kids as young as grade school are taught rules, discipline, and safety when it comes to the road. There are miniature streets and overpass and traffic light for kids to simulate crossing and driving the streets. The CNN host even said, we can't do something for today's generation (malala na), but there's hope in the next one (the kids). :D

Meron dating naging discussion dito na yung sport pwedeng konektado sa pasensya ng 1 nasyon. Yung football hindi uubra dito tulad ng basketball kasi ang tagal ng iskoring. Kumbaga yung effort sa basketball, kita agad. Sa footbal matagal e.

Kaya yun, gustong progress 1 pitik lang. :sweat:

^pano pa kaya yung soccer? yun talaga mas matagal ang scoring dun haha...ang sport lang naman na alam ng pinoy is basketball at boxing. Gusto kasi fast paced. :sweat:

Yung pagturo sa tamang pagtawid wala din yan. Tinuruan mo nga ng dapat gawin pero iba naman ang nakikita sa lansangan sa araw-araw eh di wala din. :lol:

Kaya nga maganda talagang gawin is tuluyan maghigpit at magpatupad ng dapat. Mag tayo ng additional infastructures na magagamit ng masa and at the same time mag impose din ng mas mahigpit na penalty. Dun lang talaga matututo ang madla sa mga nararapat gawin. Maglagay ka nga lang ng tamang loading/unloading zone papalagan agad, hindi muna inisip yung benefit ng paglalagay nun in the first place.

Wala na kasi yung mga informative commercials dito sa atin di tulad nung 90s.

Meron dati sinabi na hindi raw porke't mabagal magpatakbo ng sasakyan, safe na. Pwedeng merong mabilis na tumatakbo mula sa likod.

Saka yung commercial dati na "Sa mata ng bata, ang mali ay nagiging tama pag ito ay ginagawa ng mas matanda."

Kahit naman sa SG hindi rin nasusunod yung mga simpleng batas lansangan tulad ng tamang pagtawid all the time. Pag walang sasakyan na dumadaan habang nakapula ang pedestrian crossing sign meron pa ring mga tumatawid. Same thing goes for smoking in public or littering.

Pero ang malaking pinagkaiba lang talaga is atleast dun may pangil ang batas nila. Pag tumawid ka sa hindi dapat tawiran at nasagi ka, ikaw pa ang idedemanda ng nakabangga syo - depensa nila,nakita mo nang naka pula ang pedestrian crossing light so bakit ka pa tumawid? :sweat: Dito sa pinas mauuwi lang sa road rage most of the time ang mga ganung sitwasyon.

Saka dito sa atin, pabor lagi sa pedestrian kahit walang kasalanan yung may kotse.

Sabagay ganun din yung ibang bansa tulad ng US. Kahit naka-stop yung pedestrian at tumawid kailangang pagbigyan. Pero at least sa mga napuntahan ko, sa California, kahit mukhang loko-loko, hindi tatawid yun pag hindi pa sila naka-go. Unless na lang kung wala talagang tumatawid na sasakyan.

Mabalik ulit sa comparison ko sa SG, sa mga main and small roads nila merong tinatawag na "zebra crossing" at yun talaga ang dapat tawiran ng tao. Kahit dire-direcho ang sasakyan na paliko, need nila huminto pag merong tumatawid kasi yun naman talaga ang purpose ng paglagay nun. Kaya pag ako naglalakad dito sa lanes na to pwede ako tumawid ng direcho ng hindi na tumitingin kasi mapipilitang huminto ang sasakyan para mag give way sa pedestrians. Sigurado hindi tatalab dito sa tin ang mga ganitong sistema.

Eto ang road rule regarding the zebra crossing: [source]
On approach, regardless of the absence of any pedestrians, all motorists are required to keep left of the divider, prepare to stop and stay in their respective lanes, i.e. no overtaking is permitted.

When pedestrians are present at the side of a zebra crossing, all motorists are obligated to give priority to pedestrians crossing the zebra crossing bars, by stopping before the white line across the lane. No waiting is permitted within the vicinity of the zebra crossing.

A sign indicating a pedestrian crossing or a 'SLOW' painted on the road may be present as well.

Yung sasabihan ka ng "ano na bang nagawa mo para sa bansa natin" At yung "Dami mong alam, ikaw na kaya maging presidente."

Bawal na ba dito sa atin mag labas ng kahit konting talino? Hindi nga talino yung mga ibang sinasabi e, common sense nalang.

Nakakaawa talaga. Madami akong nababasang na-offload stories sa mga travel page.

Badtrip talaga mga IO natin. Pinag ipunan mo mabuti yung travel, paid plane ticket, somehow paid accommodation, tapos hindi ka pala matutuloy kasi inaassume talaga ng IO na magti-TNT ka.
