21 Dead after Bus fell off Skyway, And How You Can Prevent Being Involved

News yesterday shocked everyone when a bus fell off Skyway. Don Mariano, the bus transit involved, has a track record of accidents involving its bus. The Metro Manila Development authority is now considering the suspension of the whole Don Mariano fleet. However, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board suspended the franchise of Don Mariano.

This is an unfortunate incident that no one should be involved in. Here are a few tips on avoiding these accidents:

  1. Avoid Buses that you know overspeed – If you take buses always, then you know that a lot of buses overspeed especially in Commonwealth, East Avenue and some parts of EDSA. Avoid them.
  2. Most buses involved are usually ordinary buses. Avoid them.
  3. Use your own vehicle or rent a car – This way, you are more involved in how safe you will be on the road instead of the driver. You cannot of course predict actions of another driver.
  4. Avoid traveling very early in the morning, if you can help it. Most people don’t have the luxury to not travel early in the morning. The reason behind this is that most drivers speed in the early morning when there are no MMDA officials.

Overspeeding has always been an issue especially with buses involved in accidents. The best way to avoid these accidents is that you don’t avoid them entirely. Avoid overspeeding and avoid traveling in accident-prone areas.

The ‘Undas’. One of the bigger holiday of Roman Catholic Filipinos. A time an Exodus of Filipinos return to their hometown to visit their loved ones and stay with family. It is no wonder that traffic is very high in road systems going to the provinces. And as you know traffic, it also makes your gas usage go higher.

Here are some tips to get more from your gas:

  • Avoid idling in traffic. If you know, you will be stopping for 30 minutes or so, switch off your engine.
  • Adjust air-conditioning when necessary. When it is cool enough, switch it off. It also already very cold in the provinces anyhow.
  • Keep of the weight. If you really don’t need it in your car, don’t bring it. A heavier car means more gas usage.
  • Don’t forget your gas cap. Fuel will evaporate easily in high temperature weather.
  • Check your tires. Make sure they are properly inflated. Check your tire manual for the correct pressure needed
