Twenty-six cases have been added to the number of traffic accidents in Bacolod City this year. Forty accidents were recorded in 2017 compared to 66 incidents reported this 2018. There is an increase of 65% in the number of accidents in the city, most of them involving motorcycle accidents. [1]

Last month, an ordinance was approved by members of the Bacolod Sangguniang Panglungsod (City Council) requesting related government agencies to study the addition of motorcycle lanes. The main purpose of doing so is to lessen traffic in the city and to minimize motorcycle accidents.

Avocadoes are abundant this month.



It is the season for avocadoes this month. An avocado is a large berry with a seed in it. It is sometimes called alligator pear because its shape looks like a pear and its outer skin is textured like an alligator’s. Avocadoes do not contain any cholesterol or sodium, and are low in saturated fat which is good for the health. Avocadoes can be eaten on their own. They can also be mashed or blended into a drink or dessert. This local favorite can be found at local markets in the city.


Local activity to try: visiting art exhibits
