Only in the Philippines?

Overloaded Jeepney

You certainly wouldn't see this here in the USA. It's an over-loaded jeepney (a form of public transportation in the Philippines and it was designed based on the US Army jeep.) This was on our way back home from a trip to Tagaytay City.

In the provinces, this is a regular sight especially on small towns and barrios. Since public transportation in those areas is spotty, people cram into every inch of the buses, jeepneys and even tricycles. I don't know how the driver manages to hear people who want to get off. Maybe they have some kind of fire alarms that sound off. It certainly is unsafe and I wouldn't want to be on it if it was in an accident.
