Philippine Road Safety Condition
The rate of traffic accidents in the Philippines increases steadily at 20% per annum. This road safety scenario may be disturbing for the country where 80% of passenger mobility and 60% of freight traffic are dependent on land transportation.
Based on studies, 90% of traffic accidents are due to human errors that may sum up into 2 major causes: (1) lack of proper safety attitude; and (2) inadequate skills to operate motor vehicles. To these – PROPER EDUCATION IS THE KEY.
Urged by a strong sense of obligation deeply rooted from the company’s safety philosophy of “delivering safety in every vehicle”, Honda in the Philippines institutionalized road safety initiatives by establishing HONDA SAFETY DRIVING CENTER (HSDC).
