NEW ROTUNDA TRAFFIC REGULATIONS & ROAD SIGNS

AHVA Bulletin No. 2022-1006

Dear AHV Neighbors,

As you must have noticed, a few weeks ago we started putting up new road signs for the proper management of rotunda traffic. We have personally observed, and some of us have been involved in, near-misses because of motorists who do not slow down, or worse, do not yield to rotunda traffic when they should.

In view of these incidences, we have decided to adopt international/LTO regulations governing the use of rotundas. We have also adopted international road signs for the management of traffic in rotundas and, have made modifications to these road signs to make them more explicit and direct, knowing that many drivers in the country do not know how to drive when approaching or when in a rotunda. FYI, the correct, international/LTO action for drivers to take when approaching a rotunda is to YIELD TO VEHICLES ALREADY IN THE ROTUNDA. It is NOT to make a full stop. YIELDING MAY REQUIRE ONE TO MAKE A FULL STOP, but it is not a requirement to make a full stop when there are no vehicles in the rotunda.

Note: pedestrians ALWAYS have right of way over any vehicle.

More road signs, including signs painted on roads, will be added in the coming weeks. Where applicable, previous “FULL STOP” signs painted on roads at rotundas will be replaced by painted “YIELD” signs.

On Friday last week, the Security Force, led by Board Director Admiral Rommel Galang, conducted a lecture among village tricycle drivers on the rules and etiquette of rotunda driving. More approaches to educate residents and non-residents will be implemented in the future.

Once all the road signs are complete and in place, we will issue a bulletin officially announcing our new rotunda traffic regulations. Seven (7) days after these new rotunda regulations are announced, we will begin strict enforcement of the regulations.

We thank everyone in advance for your cooperation. For a better and safer Alabang Hills.

SAN BEDA EXAM WEEK

AHVA Bulletin No. 2022-1005

Dear AHV Neighbors,

You may have noticed the unusually heavy traffic today in the Don Manolo/San Beda area. We have just learned that this was due to it being “Exam Week” in the school. Unfortunately, we will have to expect this volume of traffic to recur daily up to Friday.

We need to ask you all to please bear the inconvenience that we may experience till the end of the week. Rest assured that our Security Force will do everything possible to ensure smooth traffic flow despite the heavy volume of vehicles.

Thank you.

ADDITIONAL SPEED BUMPS TO AVERT ROAD ACCIDENTS

AHVA Bulletin No. 2022-1003

Dear AHV Neighbors,

Today we have begun to install additional speed bumps in an effort to make our roads safer for motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.

Since we took over in mid-March this year, we have noticed that many motorists, both residents and non-residents, do not slow down at certain intersections and instead barrel down the road endangering not only themselves but other motorists as well. They particularly endanger cyclists and pedestrians, most especially children. We have personally observed many near-misses. This has to stop. We ask all motorists to observe all the speed bumps and all road and traffic signs. VIOLATORS WILL BE APPREHENDED AND FINED.

We also request all cyclists to also slow down at intersections and blind curves. By not doing so, you are not only endangering your lives but also the lives of those that you may hit. Many near-misses have also been reported to us.

The new/additional speed bumps installed today are at the following intersections:
• Angeles St. corner Angeles St.
• Toledo St. corner Tagaytay St.
• Doña Ines St. corner Tacloban St.

Thank you.

AHVA Board of Directors
