These were among the pieces of advice transport officials offered to Filipinos joining the exodus to the provinces for the Christmas and New Year holidays.
On Sunday, the Philippine Coast Guard reminded people going to the provinces by boat to steer clear of colorum bancas.
Such vessels are likely not registered and have no guarantee of safety, radio dzBB’s Mao dela Cruz reported.
For its part, the Land Transportation Office reminded motorists to keep their vehicles in top shape.
This is to avoid accidents on the road as many people flock out of town, radio dzBB’s Manny Vargas reported.
More Filipinos are expected to head for the provinces in the coming days as the holidays draw closer. — Joel Locsin/LBG, GMA News
