Wikis > What Do I Need To Know About Driving In The Philippines > Safe and Legal Driving in the Philippines

Despite everything you may observe, the Philippines has a road code and a licensing system that is meant to ensure that road users are competent when they use the highways. Safe and legal driving in the Philippines may not appear to be policed and it is true that you could find it is easy to avoid detection of many offenses as long as you don’t either:
a) Get stopped at at a checkpoint
b) Are involved in an accident.
Then the full force of the law is bought to bear retrospectively, as everything from blood alcohol to speeding to vehicle condition can be on the table, especially if requested by other parties.
