The epitome of a nations success.
Rugged spacious powerful
(No maintenance needed)
The Philippine Jeepney
We cant deny it. Its part of our culture. Jeepney is been with us after WWII. It might be true that our ingenuity(Now how do you spell that|? hehehe)had help us recover after the war. But Its been Decades and still Jeepney still remain the same. We Still have no National Car. other neighboring countries have their own car. Indonesia Had one. Malaysia is coming back with proton
vietnam seems to be doing in car manufacturing.
Whats in a jeep anyway?
Crowded. The last passenger should sit only one of his or her butt cheek.
Barbaric Drivers. As another driver in the street I must say that 80% of jeepneys does not respect trafficc signs. If your in an open intersection and your on the redside and a jeep is beside you. theres a 90% chance that it would ignore the sign.
Some even are disrespectful to their passenger and to trafficc enforcers.
Pollution. Jeepneys has got to be the most neglected piece of equipment in this counrty. There are rules alright but nobodyseems to care.
Road worthy. At night maybe only 2 out of 10 has the proper or required light for safety.
Cheap fare or is it? at P7.50 for the first 5 kilometer?I dont think so.
Symbol of National Pride?
I dont know seems to me that its a symbol of lawlessness
I just pass by this Tourist shop and saw this little toy jeepneys that they are selling. And I wondered. Is Jeepney really something to be proud of as of this time?
Ok so i made this bec. everytime I bike commute jeepneys would cut me off like am not in existence
