The government recently relaxed the community quarantine guidelines, which gradually reopens up the economy. Thousands of workers are finally allowed to go to their offices, provided they follow strict health and safety protocols.

Although public transport will be operational, still, there are lots of limitations to ensure social distancing among passengers. For instance, in the National Capital Region (NCR), the resumption of public transport systems will be done in two phases, says the Department of Transportation (DoTR).

For Phase 1, covering June 1 to 21, augmented trains and buses, taxis, transport network vehicles (TNVs), shuttle services, point-to-point buses, bicycles, and tricycles can operate but, with limited passenger capacity; while provincial buses are not allowed to enter Metro Manila.

For Phase 2, covering June 22 to 30, public utility buses, modern public utility vehicles (PUVs), and UV Express will be permitted to operate with limited passenger capacity, along with the initial set of transport modes allowed to run during Phase 1.

Since all transport modes will remain limited, it may take longer for the public commute to get to their destinations, especially as the mass transportation systems need to take safety precautions to keep Filipinos safe from contacting COVID-19.

For Honda Philippines, Inc., the No. 1 Motorcycle Manufacturer in the country, this situation reinforces the need for motorcycles as a convenient and safe mode of solo transportation, helping riders get to their destinations faster and safer.

While anticipating the increase of solo riders on the road, it is most important that road safety must be observed at all times. Road Safety experts from Honda Safety Driving Center listed some of the key things you can do to stay safe on the road while observing physical distancing:

Check Your Motorcycles

You will most probably need to use your motorcycle more often now, because of the limited transportation. However, the quarantine probably left your motorcycle collecting dust the past months, which is why a thorough motorcycle check is important before hitting the road.

So, before going out to ride, just remember this acronym: G.O.T. T.O. B.E. S.A.F.E.

• General Appearance – Make sure your bike looks good and is in a rideable condition.
• Oil – Ensure that the engine oil is between the maximum and minimum levels using the engine dipstick.
• Tires – Check for any cracks, bulges, or signs of wear in the treads (Low tire pressure or any defects could cause a blowout).
• Tension of chain – Check the chain if it’s well lubricated. Chain tension must be following your motorcycle model.
• Operation of Controls – check throttle play, and must maintain snapback operations. Check clutch lever for free play.
• Brakes. – Check operation and cable conditions. Test both front and rear brakes to ensure these are working properly.
• Engine – Make a visual check on your engine to see any leakages or loose fittings.
• Side Mirror – Make sure that the side mirror is free from scratches and must be clean and clear.
• Alignment of steering – Check smoothness of play and make sure the handlebar is securely bolted.
• Fuel – Make sure the gasoline cap is securely closed and not leaking.
• Electrical / Lights – Ensure all electrical-based switches and devices, like the horn and lights, are properly functioning.

Wear Proper Protective Gears

All riders are required to wear a helmet and a mask when riding a motorcycle. A complete safety gear with gloves, leather jacket with an elbow and back support, and knee pads are also perfect for your riding. It pays to wear these gears to ensure your safety on the road.

Follow Traffic Rules and Guidelines

Aside from traffic rules, riders must also follow and be aware of the additional guidelines set by the authorities. It is also as important to bring necessary documents, such as your license, working certificates, valid IDs, among others, since authorities may require you to show them in checkpoints.

New Riders need to take note of these rules and regulations to avoid any unnecessary rookie mistakes. So for the newbies, keep in mind to check both sides before changing lanes and use turn signals, only use the horn to communicate with other riders, and simply be alert at all times.

At this point, all road users should be aware that everyone has equal rights on the road and should not be taken advantage of.

Honda Philippines joins the country’s fight against COVID-19 as it helps to promote safety protocols, such as physical distancing, through its motorcycles that provide a safe mode of mobility.

Being a Road Safety Advocate, proven by the existence of Honda Safety Driving Center, it only shows that Honda Philippines has been true to its “ONE DREAM” campaign. This campaign envisions to fulfill people’s dreams while experiencing the joy of mobility, at the same time instill a safety mindset and to properly educate road discipline and courtesy while driving.

There is a lot more to explore from Honda’s wide array of motorcycles. For more details about Honda products and promos, visit our website at www.hondaph.com and follow our social media pages: Facebook, Honda Philippines, Inc., and Instagram, @hondaph_mc.
