Comment from a reader on Jeepney driver doing what Jeepney drivers do best... ho hum,what was she doing in the middle of the road anyway? Seems pavements are just there for vendors to expand their business!
From the Bugle: C'mon, let's not blame granny for getting hit by a jeep! It is true though that pedestrians in the Philippines do not look both ways before they walk into the street. It's odd that parents in the Philippines don't teach their children to look both ways before crossing the street. It seems like one of those basic parenting lessons. Driving in Manila is like playing that game Grand Theft Auto, where people wander and stumble into traffic constantly. Even professional people, pedestrians in business suits, wander into traffic without looking.
