Driving in the Philippines is not for the faint of heart. However, if there’s one thing that has made it easier for drivers to get around, it’s most definitely the expressways — a break from the heavy traffic conditions in the metro. On top of that, RFIDs or radio frequency identification have made queueing for major tollways in the Philippines more efficient and much faster.
How do you use the RFID? First, have your RFID sticker installed in your vehicle and make sure that you have sufficient load balance. Then, you’ll be able to pass through toll gates conveniently and with ease. But, how will you know if you have enough load left? There are a few ways to check your remaining balance for both Autosweep and EasyTrip RFID accounts. Keep on reading to find out!
