Traffic in the Philippines can get pretty bad.
If traffic is bad, would you rather be sitting behind the steering wheel waiting for traffic to clear so you can more? Or, how about riding the Jeepney, where you can just sit back and relax. Maybe listen to some music if you have some tunes on your cell phone, and some headphones along with you.
I don’t know, for me, I hate sitting in traffic if I am driving. If I am just a passenger, though, I don’t let it bother me. Sometimes, when riding the jeep, I have been in traffic so heavy that I decided to just get out and walk!
Thankfully, traffic in Davao is not usually that bad, so it is not a big concern.
