Speed limits in The Philippines

Recommended Posts

: People will wander out in the road right in front of moving vehicles... and the amazing part is, many will not even bother to look in the direction of the approaching vehicle - their focus will be elsewhere, as if they have rock solid confidence that drivers will see them and stop as required.

You should drive in the province, I sometimes wonder WTF as they will cross a national highway in the midst of traffic like its not there...maybe never seen a car before?????

I like to run drying rice over to spread it all over so everyone can share it.

 

Same mentality as I have a bigger car so I can drive on the wrong side of the road when only a motorcycle is coming. Karma my friend karma

I drove a rental car on SLEX from Manila to Batangas and never seen a cop. There were speed limits but most people drove way faster than 100 kmh. I did 140-160 all the way.

Difficult to enforce sped limits in Cebu.

No decent police cars, unless you mean the ones used to take the kids to school or collect the wife from the Mall !!!

AS for the motorcycle cops, only available to weave across the road when escorting some dignitary from the airport, after which they disappear.  :cool:

60 kph...which is 37 mph. The best piece of road on Cebu has a speed limit little more than 35 mph. Even county roads in the US usually have a speed limit of 45 mph...and this is a divided highway. That just shows how idiotic the legal solutions are on Cebu. The speed limit on this road should be 80 kph, which is roughly equivalent to 50 mph. Then again, they also need a traffic signal at the Mambaling intersection (by the Seaside Mall), since drivers just do whatever they please there...often causing accidents and near-misses. The problem is with large trucks driving out-of-control...not with regular vehicles driving what should be a normal speed for that road. Large trucks shouldn't even be on that road. The road was not built to sustain heavy vehicles (insufficient road-base), and allowing big trucks on it has caused the road to sink due to the excess weight. Add to that truckers with the attitude that they have the right-of-way because they are bigger, and bad things happen.

Watch out... SLEX, NLEX and SCTEX (mostly in NCR) have different speed limits (higher as certain areas)– don't get ticketed for going slower...

With the condition of the tires on most vehicle in the Philippines, (espically the big trucks), would you really want them travelled no faster than 37 MPH?
