biglang cut ng walang signal sa bumper to bumper na traffic
^exactly. dito sa pinas kailangan mo gulatin para maka-merge ka. kung magsisignal ka didikit nung isa bumper nila dun sa kotse sa harap para hindi ka makapasok.
+1... ako din pag lipat lane.. di ako nag sisignal.. humahataw mga sasakyan eh pag nagsignal ka lane.. i just make sure.. hindi exacto lang ang distance... and forsure hindi niya kailangan mag slowdown pag nagmerge ako..
anyways.. nakwento ko ito sa uncle kong nakatira sa US... ganun din daw sakanila.. pagnagsignal ka.. bibilis din yung sasakyan sa tabi mo.. hehe
Nagsisignal ako kapag magpapalit ng lane.
Nagbibigay din ako kapag nag ssignal yung nasa harapan ko, pero binibilisan ko at nagbubusina kapag may nagbibiglaang change lane. Pero kapag clearly naghahanap ng bangaan yung nag cchange ng lane, pinagbibigyan ko na. Not worth the hassle.
Appropriately placed road signs and lane markings that are ignored.
I mean, let's face it, some folks (or should I say a lot of folks) behind lane markings and road signages nowadays do not have logic on their side when they execute their plans. The results are signages being too small to read, or too late to read, and lanes leading to nowhere, or to accidents just waiting to happen.
It's not that I'm espousing anarchy by disregarding traffic signs and lane markings because they're illogical -- depending on your logic or if you're a PUV -- but it's doubly bad motoring if you disregard traffic signs and lane markings when they completely make sense.
Was leaving Subic Bay for Manila yesterday when there was a vehicle, about 3 cars in front, just waiting to break free from the rest of the pack -- but doing it in the least responsible fashion. He was trying to overtake on the right (shoulder) where the big signboard said "No overtaking on shoulder". Then, he tried to muscle his way thru by positioning to overtake on a solid yellow center line.
Grrr! Anyhow, he got a dose of his medicine when the van he overtook prematurely and cut into did not react. His SUVs' collides with the van as he overtakes.
That train is never late!!.... as expected going home to Bulacan for the weekend.... bumper to bumper traffic along Quirino Highway approaching a bridge which will cross over to San Jose Bulacan. this 2 lane highway funnels into a single lane as it snakes into this bridge crossing.... and while the rest of the civilized world waits in line for 30 - 45 mins... I see idiots (from my lan) from my side mirror counterflowing into the opposite direction.... kapal noh...
What takes the cake is an freekin 10 wheeler truck that tries to cut into the space infront of me.... as in trying to singit to the max.... I roll down my window and ask the pahinante...." Anong plano nyo? sisingit kayo?" the Pahinante affirms.... I say.." di na kayo nahiya? lahat nakapila dito..."
Phinante mumbles somethings.....(probably how kinakawa silang mahihirap..hahaha) but I just close down my window and make sure when I move forward... I do it slowly to give the vehicle behind me a chance to close the gap so the idiot cant get in.....
I also do that when there are those who are counterflowing or are coming from the the wrong lane (i.e. shoulder) and are trying to merge with the proper lane. I keep to my line and allow enough speed to ensure the person following behind me also doesnt get cut off. Yung mali kasi ng ibang drivers is that when they are being forced by another car to cut in, they avoid them by speeding up and moving the car off their line so in effect, this allows the car to cut off the person following behind in most cases, unless the following car is likewise stubborn and will stick like an eel to the car in front.
