Motorcycle Ban

Noong 2015, nai-report na sa kabuuan ng mga road traffic accidents sa buong bansa, 53% ay mga Motorcycle Riders, pangatlo lamang sa listahan ang mga 4-wheeled vehicle drivers.

Nangyayari ang mga aksidente sa mga motorsiklo kahit na may mga naipatupad nang batas para sa road safety tulad ng speed limit, pag-gamit ng helmets, pagbabawal magmaneho sa mga naka-inom ng alak, at pagbabawal mag-angkas ng maliliit na bata.  Ngunit kahit na may mga ganitong batas nang ipinatupad, mapapansin na hindi ito mahigpit na ini-implement at marami pa din ang nakakalusot at lumalabag sa mga ito.  Ang resulta, napakataas na bilang ng mga motorcycle-related road accidents sa lahat ng panig ng bansa.

Marami ang nahihikayat na bumili ng motorsiklo bilang personal na transportasyon dahil matipid ito sa gas, mabilis kang maihahatid sa iyong pupuntahan, at mura ang monthly amortization.  Ngunit kasama sa pagmamaneho nito ang risk o peligro sa kalsada, lalo na sa mga “freeway” tulad ng Edsa at Commonwealth Avenue.

Sa kanyang panayam sa Bandila noong Miyerkules, July 6, 2016, sinabi ni LTO Chief Edgar Galvante na sang-ayon siya sa pag-babawal ng mga motorsiklo sa mga highway sa bansa.  Kung maipapatupad ang planong ito, hindi na maaaring gumamit ng mga national highways ang mga motorsiklo tulad ng Edsa, Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon Avenue, at iba pang main thoroughfares sa Manila at iba pang mga bayan at siyudad.

Sang-ayon ka ba sa idea na ipagbawal na ang mga motorsiklo sa mga main highways?  Bakit o bakit hinde?

MMDA Motorcycle Lanes

Bonjour. Mabuhay.

MMDA’s motorcycle lane starts today October 17, 2011.
If you’re a motorcycle buff, you better start knowing your rightful place on the road.

=================

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) has begun its implementation of its motorcycle lane scheme along Commonwealth Avenue and Macapagal Boulevard on Monday.

The MMDA said beginning today, motorcycles traveling along Commonwealth Avenue in Quezon City will only be allowed to use the avenue’s 4th lane.

Motorcycles traveling along the Macapagal Boulevard in the cities of Parañaque and Pasay, on the other hand, will only be allowed to use the outermost lane.

The MMDA explained that those who wish to make a left turn may shift to inner lanes 100 meters before the boulevard’s intersection.

The motorcycle lanes can still be used by other vehicles, except heavy vehicles such as trucks and buses.

The MMDA explained that the first week of the implementation of the scheme will serve as a dry run.

Beginning October 24, those who will be caught violating the scheme will be fined P500, and will be required to attend a 15-minute on-the-spot seminar.

The MMDA said it also plans to implement the scheme along EDSA Avenue and C-5 Road.

The new scheme is MMDA’s response to the high number of deaths from road accidents involving motorcycles.

The agency’s record shows there have been 7,938 motorcycle accidents and 83 deaths from January to June 2011. http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/nation/metro-manila/10/16/11/mmda-starts-motorcycle-lane-dry-run
