In the Philippines it seems as if everyone has a motorcycle. The motorcycle is definitely a preferred way of transportation for many. One can easily sneak through all the traffic jams on a motorcycle. But with all these motorcycles comes the inevitable flouting of any and all safety measures.
No helmets, no boots, no eye protection, children riding, more then two riding, ladies riding sidesaddle, etc, etc. Just stand on a busy street and start counting all the violations of common sense safety measures and soon you will run out of numbers.
This will be the beginning of a series of posts dedicated to all the motorcycle madness in the Philippines.
