KILOMETER POSTThis is the "kilometer post" or also called "milestone" in other countries. It is commonly seen on the national roads or Pan Philippine Highway which crosses the entire Philippines.
What is its purpose?
It serves as a guide in our journey and a great help if we lose the GPS signal on our gadgets. The numbers and letters engraved on it indicate the distance or distance we have from a place of origin and up to the place of destination.
Example in the picture: The above KM 340- it indicates the distance from KM 0. KM 0 is the reference point of distance located in Luneta Park, Manila (inset photo). The D 2 below indicates your distance to the very center of town. In the picture, you can see you are 340 kms away from Luneta and 2 kms near Daet, Camarines Norte.
In addition, there are other places with KM 0 reference point of distance in different parts of our archipelago.
So when you lose your GPS signal or WAZE goes crazy, don't worry. You know what to do, just look for this yellow pillar.
