What is the difference of the street and race track?
In order to be successful on race track you need to win the race while on street in order to be successful you need to have a smooth traffic.
In Metro Manila, being ahead of other cars is better, there is no such award of arriving first at a destination. I don’t know why.
Whenever you want to change lane, most of the cars don’t give way, therefore at end of the intersection you can see a lot of cars struggling to make the turn from the inner lane since nobody gave way before they reached the intersection.
Bottom-line the traffic flow is still not smooth since nobody give way.
There is no value on reaching the destination first, but there is a great value on reaching the destination comfortably.
