Sen. Go appeals to LGUs for more bike lanes

CALOOCAN CITY, July 11 (PIA) -- Senator Christopher Lawrence "Bong" Go has appealed to local authorities to install more bike lanes to encourage more Filipinos to use bicycles given the current limited transportation options amid quarantine measures.

In a statement, Go acknowledged that "despite the gradual relaxation of quarantine measures, public transportation remains a challenge for many Filipinos in many areas in the country due to social distancing measures."

He then asked local government units, in coordination with concerned government agencies, to designate more bicycle lanes with proper lane markings, road safety signs and lighting, among other safety measures, when feasible.

"This is both to encourage more people to use bicycles as an active mode of transportation and to ensure their safety, particularly those plying busy streets in big cities," Go said.

The Senator also encouraged the public to consider the use of bicycles as an active mode of transportation.

"Basta siguraduhin po dapat na ligtas ito para sa mga nagbibisikleta at pati rin sa ibang nasa kalsada," Go advised, particularly after some sectors called for the installation of sufficient lighting along bicycle lanes.

"Siguraduhin rin lang po natin na physically fit rin tayo kung magbibisikleta kayo para makaiwas sa disgrasya," he added.

Go also reminded the public to comply with traffic guidelines when using bicycles.

"At dapat palaging sinusunod ang lahat ng batas trapiko, kasama na ang pagsuot ng helmet, hindi lang para sa inyong kaligtasan kundi para na rin sa ibang gumagamit ng ating mga kalsada," he said.

Go cited Davao City as an example for LGUs that wish to install their bike lanes to provide transportation options to their constituents.

"Very recently, Davao City has already started demarcating bicycle lanes along its major thoroughfares. This is in recognition of the need to promote safe alternative modes of transportation while ensuring the safety of the public," said Go.

"We encourage other LGUs to follow suit soon," he added.

Whilst he is amenable to the use of bicycles as an active form of transportation, Go emphasized that the safety of Filipinos should be guaranteed and prioritized when proposing policies that help the country cope with the current pandemic.

"Kagaya ng sinabi ko noon, lalong lalo na habang nasa gitna pa tayo ng pandemyang ito, palaging isaalang-alang at unahin ang buhay, kaligtasan, at kapakanan ng bawat Pilipino pagdating sa mga polisiya at patakaran na ating ipinapatupad," he said.

Earlier, Go appealed to the Metro Manila Development Authority to ensure the safety of individuals who are traveling using their bicycles. The designation of bike lanes in Metro Manila is a joint project of MMDA and Department of Transportation.

"Siguraduhin po natin sa MMDA na safe po ang pagdadaanan (ng mga nagbibisikleta), talagang secured ang bicycle lanes na ibibigay ninyo. At siguraduhin ninyo na rin po na ang mga nagba-bike are physically fit," he said.

The Senator also encouraged the public to consider the use of bicycles as an active mode of non- motorized transport which is environmentally friendly as these are zero-emission modes with health benefits to bikers.

Meanwhile, Go has also earlier expressed his openness to suggestions of allowing motorcycle backriding, subject to strict adherence to health protocols, given the limited transportation options for Filipinos.

"Malaking tulong sa ating mga kababayan na papayagan ang 'backriding' sa motorsiklo lalo na dahil limitado pa ang public transportation. Huwag lang po natin madaliin. Siguraduhin dapat na magagawa ito sa ligtas na paraan," said Go.

"Pag-aralan dapat ng mabuti, konsultahin ang mga eksperto, at alalahanin natin palagi 'yung health protocols na dapat sundin," he added.

Proposed guidelines on motorcycle backriding specifically allowing family members have been submitted by the Technical Working Group to the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases and will also be reviewed further by the National Task Force COVID-19 with its own recommendations.

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.

Isang Pasasalamat

Sabi nila: “There’s always something to be thankful for.” Kaya ako din may sasabihin! 🤣✌️ Isang pasasalamat! 💗 Sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa akin, maraming salamat po. Sa mga pagtulong sa akin, kahit hindi ko sinasabi, pero ginagawa pa rin, Thank you. Hindi ko man nasasabi personally pero taos puso ang pasasalamat ko sa inyo. Alam kong alam niyo na kung sino kayo. Isa na lang mahihiling ko talaga, ang mapanatili ang genuine and lasting friendship na nabuo natin. 💗 Kung may nasaktan o na-offend ako dahil sa mga paniniwala o pangbubully ko. Humihingi ako ng paumanhin. Kung isa ka sa ma-ooffend ko pa lang. Humihingi na ako agad ng paumanhin. Dahil din sa inyo, may natutunan at matututunan ako.

Kayo ang magiging inspirasyon ko na ipagpatuloy ang paglaban ng taas noo at ngiting tagos hanggang puso sa darating pang mga taon. Sa mga nakakamiss sa akin,

15 Things That Make You a Baguio Person

Here are random instances that might make you feel the feels: Despite the fact that everyone gets enthusiastic about strawberries, you go, "Like, duh! We have a whole farm of those!" you roll your eyes and add everything else is strawberry-tized -- from jams to wines to taho!  You recognize how fresh vegetables really looks, smells and tastes like, and as Sayote may cost a fortune in other areas, in Baguio, you can ask from your neighbour’s backyard or you're lucky if the vines has branched out over your side already.  You secretly know the lyrics to country music when it is played on the radio, more so you sing along every time the Magic 99.9 jingle is on. Leather jackets are for cowboys, denim jackets are what you take when you go swimming and those killer boots? those are made for Baguio walking.  Midland is where you check out what’s in, hot and not in the city including obituaries.  Dainty, Star Café or Luisa’s is where the oldies meet up for
