Traffic jams, road rage incidents, and vehicular accidents are turning to be normal fare in the country’s main roads and highways due to the reckless driving of some drivers.
Their lack of discipline and utter disregard of traffic rules have led to not just wasted time but destruction of both property and life. With the growing accident rate in the Philippines, is it safe to say that Filipino drivers have really changed from the stereotype “sweet lovers” to “accident-lovers?”
This Thursday (Jan 13) in “Krusada,” Tony Velasquez will zoom in on the recent road mishaps such as the STAR tollway tragedy, which have shocked the nation. Join Velasquez as he finds out the root cause of the road safety problem in the Philippines. Who is to blame and what can be done to turn things around?
It has been Velasquez’s crusade to instill discipline among motorists in order to reduce if not eradicate the incidence of accidents in the country’s thoroughfares. But could it be that the government is also at fault for these tragedies due to inefficient infrastructures and systems in our streets?
Find out what public officials are doing to uphold the United Nations’ Action for Road Safety from 2011 and 2020 with Tony Velasquez this Thursday (Jan 13) in “Krusada” after “Bandila” on ABS-CBN.
