That is just awful to say docwho.

@  doctor who : (19 August 2017 - 05:16 AM)

@bobby , Let me be the first to say RIP My old friend Bobby, didnt know him but i hear he was a great Guy, , Just in case ,, its always good to jump on the band wagon after the event,,Smile

@  statusquo : (19 August 2017 - 05:05 AM)

@bobbydown it's always a good idea to scout a place prior to moving in by speaking with neighbors and see how loud it is late at night to avoid the misfortune you have. Sorry to hear about it

@  bobbydown : (19 August 2017 - 04:31 AM)

i used to live in a hotel in narciso street but moved out because of the drugs usage dealing, so then we moved to balibago and now the neighbor is dealing drugs, not locals doing the drugs,

@  bobbydown : (19 August 2017 - 04:29 AM)

i hope my neighbour moves out or the police knock on the right door

@  newbster : (18 August 2017 - 10:35 PM)

kantutero, I have been too busy the last few weeks to keep up on news. Can you elaborate on your breitbart war post and body count in manila & bulacan? Or point me to a thread/article?

@  FurryFriend : (18 August 2017 - 08:56 PM)

MONGER ADVISORY - The drug war in the Philippines has apparently taken a sudden drastic escalation with police killing over 80 suspects in four days. While this shouldn't merit changing travel plans, it may be advisable to avoid high crime areas. The presence of police in a certain area should not be construed as a "safer" place. Go here to discuss: http://philippines-a...-war-on-drugs/.

@  kantutero : (18 August 2017 - 07:59 PM)

The War has begun (not the one with North Korea, the Breitbart war on you know who!) Poor timing for a trip to the PI. Speaking of the PI, the body count in Manila and Bulacan this week is truly frightening.

@  Las Vegas Mo... : (18 August 2017 - 05:51 PM)

News here has it up to 14 confirmed dead now :(

@  palo : (18 August 2017 - 06:28 AM)

The little island people usage is almost certainly a folk legend. Almost certainly it's just a shortening of "Filipino," and you can see other examples for other countries.

@  statusquo : (18 August 2017 - 04:42 AM)

@Budhah that's a no brainer to filter but gums the works on a few threads however it's fair.

@  Budhah : (18 August 2017 - 03:53 AM)

I thought it was used because it seems that so many wear those little FLIIIP FLOOPS,, But agree with not a good name to use on them, I was a moderator on a Yahoo site years ago, and sought to correct several "GITS"..

@  Smithy1971 : (17 August 2017 - 11:07 PM)

12 dead and currently 100 people injured in Barcelona.

Major terror attack underway in Barcelona

@  Mactanboy : (17 August 2017 - 03:25 PM)

"Filipino" substituted by system for word FurryFriend used below. I am not a fan of any derogatory word for anyone!

@  Mactanboy : (17 August 2017 - 03:24 PM)

@FurryFriend: I am retired military and served two Philippine tours. Heard a few people use "Filipino," but never heard anyone use the four words you attribute to the acronym. In the 60s & 70s it was not widely used in my presence. LBFM was used across Asia by GIs

Just so you are aware, they do sporadic radar checks on the tollway. The Hwy. Patrol wait at the tollbooths, pull you over and give you a ticket. Thus far, I've not been aware of offering 'consideration' has worked. If you get a ticket, it's a royal pain in the butt. You have to go to Quezon City to retrieve it and, in many cases, attend a day-long seminar on traffic safety.

 

They set up between Diniluphian and the Tipo exit in the Subic direction and after Porac going the opposite direction.

 

A couple of years ago, I bought a radar detector. It's saved my butt several times.

Well, keep P 500 ready for the policemen's merienda, they will most likely pull you over. Just stating the facts.  :o

You can not pay them off on the SCTEX . If you are caught speeding it's a ticket and there is no way out of it.

Radar trap in SCTEX at the Subic end ihas been there everytime I have used the road this past three months. They must catch dozens of cars everyday.

I always think the speed limit on the SCTEX is too low. It's a good quality road, well clear of pedestrians and other normal road hazards, and it's frustrating to have to keep below 100kph when there are so few other cars using it.

They took my P500 or they would have taken my drivers license, and I would have had to collect it and pay a ticket.

Ditto what Chris said.  120Kph would be reasonable. Driving skills are too poor to have autobahn style no limit.  Flow of traffic from Tarlac to Clark was 130-140kph yesterday, and whenever possible I drive that speed and never seen anybody getting a ticket. No idea about Clark to Subic portion.

 

On the awesome new TPLEX was doing the same as was most the traffic. Only used that awesome highway once and saw no patrol vehicles. If you drive it often radar detector makes sense.  They are illegal in many US States and other countries (not sure about here) but  best to have a concealed with me thinks.

Before my trip a couple years ago, I made up fake licenses. I was driving up to Baugio and got nailed at the end of the tollway. I handed them a fake license and they wrote the ticket. They said I had to pick up the license in Quezon when I paid the ticket. I acted shocked and said why can't I just pay the ticket here and keep my license. He wasn't buying it so I drove away with the ticket and pulled another fake license out of my bag.  ...and no, I never went to Quezon

You don't see them. The radar is in a van or car parked along the roadside, in the rest stops, on bridges and at exits. The officers are at the exits before the toll booths. It's a good question about the legality. I conceal mine on the dashboard in the middle of the windscreen. Hidden in plain sight. :)

The vehicle is easy to spot and identify. It normally resides between Dinalupihan and Tipo when driving from AC to Subic.

In a surprise move last week, I noticed they moved it to approx 5km BEFORE Dinalupihan (going towards Subic).

Said vehicle is not an SCTEX yellow pickup truck.

Pay attention and you will be able to ID same.
