An elderly woman brought good vibes online for her safety-conscious act of carrying a ‘stop sign’ in an accident-prone area.

Nowadays, road accidents have been one of the major concerns in various countries across the world including the Philippines. These incidents usually lead to injuries and even to the involved individuals.
