Davao City Mayor Attorney Sarah Duterte Carpio, better known as Inday Sarah to Davaoeños, begins her Safety Riding training at the Honda Safety Driving Center (HSDC) in Sucat, Paranaque as part of her support to Honda’s Road Safety Advocacy.
A lawyer by profession and a certified motorcycle lover, avid Big Bike model and rider is influenced by her father President Rodrigo Duterte. She is known to go around her hometown of Davao on her Honda XR200. She is also an avid rider of Big Bike models.
As a politician well-versed in the country’s road and traffic conditions, Duterte wants to set an example to the Filipino people, whose lives heavily depend on various modes of land transportation. Adding to this is the fast growing number of motorcycle riders, with sales growing at 115% from the previous year.
Statistics also tell that human errors caused by inadequate skills and lack of a proper safety mindset cause 90% of road accidents, which results in delays, losses, and even fatalities. This is what HSDC wants to counter with its several courses focusing on safety practices for both two-wheels and four-wheels.
Honda Safety Driving Center is the largest and only training facility for both motorcycles and automobiles in the Philippines, employing safety instructors that received world-class training. Courses include informative classroom sessions that tackle safety attitudes and practices, while actual riding sessions are held at the world-class circuit that simulates actual road situations – from intersections, to roundabouts, s-courses, bumpy roads, and more.
Ultimately, Honda’s goal is to build a community of safe riders, so everyone can safely feel the joy of mobility.
Atty. Sarah Duterte-Carpio shares Honda’s vision for road safety for every Filipino, so with her enrolment with HSDC, she advocates safety not only in words but also in practice.
