    yes bacon area after dark is a real thrill, one night from duma to dauin we counted over 20 m/bikes without tail lights and around 10 without h/lights same on the return trip so in a 40+ minute drive that 60 m/cycles that dont give a sh-- about their lives or their familys life nevermind about any other road user. its not easy to miss or go around these sh-- heads once you are ontop of them in a car

    The accident was near Bacong High School, a klick north of the market.
    Too scary to drive at night any more. We used to drive into town for dinner once a week but now too stressful, more traffic and more vehicles with no lights, as well as crazy van and bus drivers overtaking you. They recently painted an orange lane dividing line in no passing areas but the majority ignoring the rule. I expect things will worsen as the rainy season hampers visibility.

    I've been noticing that going up to Valencia is getting more dangerous at night. Rush hour is getting ridiculous now as well.

    As far as I am concerned driving at night , anyware in this country is just a accident waiting to happen.
    I just do not do it full stop, Coz lets face it if you have an accident no matter what , Its going to end up as the foreigner's fault isn't it....

    Would be better they enforce installation of working turn signals, and that they are in fact used. An EWD will not help in those cases with a tricycle. Besides, I wonder how long an EWD will be left alone if one put one out. I bet it will be gone in 50 seconds.
