  4. Hi Micro,

    Its been a while but I hope you'd still have much time for your research. Would you be interested to investigate on the effectiveness of traffic rules and regulations by looking at the number of traffic violations and the factors that may have caused the violations?

    That's what I can think about for now. Just keep in touch.

  6. depende sa 5es kung engineering mas more on infrustructure

  7. ask ko lang kung ang serving ay violation ba?kasi kung titignan natin sa dictionary eh palilipat lang ito ng lane sa tamang paraan at gamit ang signal light

  8. Hi Anonymous! I assume you were referring to SWERVING. Swerving is not a traffic violation and the definition you mentioned should apply. Here's a post related to your query:

  9. korek ka jan.but violation comes in if in swerving to another lane you hit another vehicle or a pedestrian

  15. i hope you can suggest what is the exemption of the law regarding the R.A 4136 we belong to the second road of the intersection. we are been hit by a pick up and our car has a damages on the right side of the front. while the other car was on the side. even if he hit us still he is not responsible for the damage because he belong to the National road or national highway. its because of this law that's why I want to know if this rules has an exemption.

  16. Hi transportation student,
    I find your school requirement to be too broad in scope.. i suggest that you choose a particular city, observe their traffic or transport problems and then recommend solutions to those problems. Start by identifying PROBLEMS then you can proceed with traffic and transport management program. Surely, you have great ideas regarding traffic or transport. If not, research and read good materials from the internet. Good luck!

  17. Hi Anonymous (October 5, 2011 9:52 AM),
    I regret to inform you that we really can't do away with that law... Vehicles coming from the priority/major roads have the right of way over those that come from the minor roads.

  18. Dapat lang na may LAW-ENFORCEMENT specially sa ating trapiko para matigil na ang mga abusadung dapat hindi rin aabusuhin sa ating mga traffic officers ang kanilang authorities.......
