Filipino motorists instructed to use their headlights when driving at night

Apparently, an obvious safety measure flies over the heads of the average Filipino motorist, as Quezon City Councilor Jaime Borres observes that "driving with the headlights dimmed or not in the appropriate brightness is a major cause of road mishaps, especially during heavy rains at night"...
He reminded motorists of Ordinance No. SP 1852 S 08, which requires them to turn on their headlights to the proper density from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following day as deterrent to road mishaps.

Aside from reckless driving, lack of road visibility caused by turned off or malfunctioning headlights of motor vehicles has been traced to be one of the major causes of road accidents.

The need to turn on headlights at night. For the Filipino, it's another one of those things that make you go hmmmm...


  1. Is Da Pinoy stupid enough to be actually told TO TURN ON THE HEADLIGHTS WHEN DRIVING AT NIGHT? Isn't it common sense that darkness = bad when driving?
