michelin rainThree things increase the risk of vehicular accidents during rainy days: decreased visibility, reduced traction and how other motorists behave.

Reduced light and blinding rain on the windshield can greatly impair visibility.

Puddles and floods remove friction and can cause skids. Grease and oil that rise to the surface when it starts to rain makes the road dangerously slippery.

Heavy rains also cause many drivers to slow down or brake abruptly. And then there are the reckless drivers who still overtake or swerve and make other drivers lose control.

antidrunk driving
It was on May 27, 2013 when President Benigno Aquino III signed into law Republic Act 10586 or more commonly known as the “Anti Drunk or Drugged Driving Act of 2013.” This will enable police and other law enforcement officials to pull over any suspected motorist, who may be under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and perform field sobriety tests.
 
If the driver fails the test, he or she will then be required to take a breathalyzer test at the police precinct. But if the motor vehicle accident involves death and/or physical injury, an alcohol and drugs test will be required. And if found guilty, motorists can be fined up to a maximum of P500,000 with the possibility of permanent revocation of their driver's license.

I'm pretty sure we're all too familiar how traffic suddenly grinds to a halt when there's an accident on the road. No, it's not always because it blocks a lane or two. If you haven't yet noticed, most, if not all, slow down just to take a look before they speed off and go about their day. I know I have more than a few times. But would you ever stop to help someone in need? Seriously, would you go out of your way to pick up a bloody half-dead person on the road and rush them to the hosiptal or would you rather let the next guy behind you do the deed? 
 
Thankfully, there are people out there who, in a split-second, disregard their own well-being to help out a person in need. This is why Goodyear annually searches for the Philippines' Bayani ng Kalsada to recognize everyday highway heroes. And for 2012, they have recently awarded five outstanding motorists who have demonstrated heroism on the road to help strangers.

Early last year, we hailed about the formation of the ASEAN NCAP (New Car Assessment Program) - a governing body that will verify the safety of vehicles built and sold in the Asia-Pacific region. You see, some cars in this part of the world may not be identical to its global counterparts in terms of specs and safety features. So to address this, the Australian NCAP (under the Global NCAP) and automobile associations of Singapore, Malaysia, and Philippines have worked together to put these vehicles in question to the test.

The first phase of evaluation was held between November 15, 2012 and January 29, 2013 at the Malaysian Institute of Road Safety Research (MIROS) PC3 crash laboratory in Melaka, Malaysia. Eight cars participated namely: the Ford Fiesta sedan, Honda City, Toyota Vios, Hyundai i10, Nissan March, Proton Saga, Proton Saga FLX+, and Perodua Myvi. (Of the bunch, only the first four are sold here in the Philippines.) And after months of steel-crumpling and glass-shattering tests, here are the results.
