Not only is it illegal to hold your cell phone while driving a vehicle in Calabarzon, but it's also possible to be issued a fine for using hands-free functions like Bluetooth.
The legal BAC (blood alcohol content) limit when operating a vehicle in Calabarzon is 0.05%. If you're planning a big night out, leave the car behind and organize some other way of getting home instead.
Traffic laws in Calabarzon allow drivers at a red light to turn into the direction of traffic nearer to them, without having to wait for a green signal. Before turning, the car must fully stop and the driver must be certain that the way is clear before moving on.
