The Motorcycle Menace

In this time where environmental concerns is supposed to be at an all time high and gas consumption should be kept at the barest minimum, the increased number of people using motorcycles is a welcome development.

However, if the Philippine government will not swiftly to increase the people's awareness for safe driving and proper maintenance of their machines, this bikes can actually become monsters compared to the menace that they are now.

Bikes are now occupying all lanes in all roads and have become road hazards. A lot of these bikers are probably not aware that they are not fast enough compared to regular vehicles and cars facing a slow bike after a round curve is tantamount to a roadkill.

Let the buyer beware. Bikes maybe wonderful but without any awareness training, it can become a cause of violent deaths.
