Let’s face it: The COVID-19 pandemic has redefined and reshaped life as we know it. It is a reality that has had a huge impact on our daily lives, since the first quarter of 2020, the effects of which will be continue for the foreseeable future. We had to adjust and must continue to adapt; not only to survive, but also to prosper, as well as to keep us (and our loved ones) safe in the midst of difficult times. And, despite some easing of restrictions, it is very wise to be on your guard and always be prepared.

To put it simply, you have to find manners and rise to the needs and dictates of the time. The mobility dilemma

While it has often been difficult to navigate this much-vaunted new normal, we have succeeded in one way or another – indeed, there is a lot to be said for the courage and fervor of the human spirit. . Among the most delicate aspects we have been confronted with is the issue of mobility. Lockdowns notwithstanding, many of us have chosen to spend as much time as possible, indoors, within the confines of our own homes, as this is where we feel most secure and secure. ‘easy. But, going out is inevitable; another fact that we have to face. Whether it’s the essentials, the essential appointments, work or family issues, at some point we have to brave the “outside world”.

But with public transport being potential hot spots for viral transmission, it is no wonder that people are reluctant to travel on such modes of transport. Many prefer to avoid going out, rather than risk catching the virus in a public vehicle. While efforts have been made to ideally limit the number of passengers and disinfect the interior of public transport vehicles at regular intervals intervals, reality is a different story, altogether. Overall, carpooling platforms have become the safer alternative; but, with frequent use, the cost of using these services certainly adds up.

How, then, to resolve the dilemma of mobility? This is where having your own vehicle has become a particularly important solution. Worldwide, people now rely on their cars, more than they ever did before the pandemic.

Mobility meets security (and reason)

While having your own private mode of transportation has always been beneficial, nowadays it is more vital than anything else. Aside from the pre-pandemic woes of commuting in the bustling and bustling metropolis, the safety angle is a very real consideration, as we have already pointed out. When we speak of the “safety features” of a vehicle, we now mean it literally! Imagine being able to meet your needs in the privacy and protection of your own car. No longer worry about crushing people and lack of social distancing, or if handrails and seats have been sanitized before using them. Take the worry out of viral load, airborne variants, and other pandemic fears.

Yes; Having your own car has the practical advantages of a sheltered place, but there is also a side that saves your sanity. Besides the essential uses, there are a number of ways your car can help relieve stress. Despite all the perils and pitfalls of today’s world, there are still pleasures you can enjoy: “drive and dine” adventures, family road trips, and the like.

Indeed, there is no doubt: having a car is no longer a luxury nowadays, it has become an indisputable necessity. But for many Filipinos, owning a vehicle can always be out of reach.
