    I find most of the aircon drivers to be quite good, except some are too slow. We have been on a few that took 4 hours from Cebu to Lilo-an, just too slow and afraid to pass anything.

    I wonder if they will also have a muted horn, or a new improved one with 10 different notes to play with every 100 metres.

    Did we mention a separate traveling compartment for the chickens / roosters and other livestock , although it has been 10 years since I did the bus run to Bacolod , so things have no doubt changed ?

    Rode the bus back from Cebu a couple of months ago. The bus driver blew that damned horn at anything that moved and many things that were inanimate. I got a head ache from it after a couple of hours and stuffed kleenex in my ears .. and my gf was like "what noise?" lol

    I do the same thing with the horn while driving...my horn just isn't THAT loud. (Although I might have a fix for that.)

    Locals do not pay attention to their surroundings when on the road. I can't hardly blame Ceres drivers for blowing their horn all the time. The noise is preferable to plowing over ignorant pedestrians and trike drivers. There are sometimes when I'm driving that I blow my horn at things that turn out to be inanimate objects. It's better to be safe than sorry. I actually think that Ceres drivers are some of the better drivers in this country. Would bet that they log less accidents per mile than the average filipino driver.
