Staying out of the bike lane if you’re behind the wheel of a motor vehicle is a given. There are, however, many more regulations in place to protect cyclists that motorists might not be aware of.
The Pasig City government recently took to Facebook to remind everyone of its bike lane regulations. Obviously, number one is for cars and motorcycles to stay out of it—don’t ride or drive inside it, and don’t leave your vehicle in its path.
