Cars. Hoppers. Scooters. In the context of Philippine society, we associate these as toys for the big boys. But the UP Sigma Beta Sorority is a living proof that when it comes to rockin’ it, gender ain’t a question. We stand out among the rest for we have, and still continue to initiate original activities such as the Road Rage Series which serve as a congregation of car enthusiasts, manufacturers, and personalization shops among others, educate motorists, entertain spectators, and show that Sigma Betans are trained to be competitive, assertive, and flexible.
Road Rage started on February of the year 2002. The UP Sigma Beta Sorority is the pioneer of such activity in Los Baños. For its first 3 years, it only catered to customized cars. But last 2005, the show opened to 2-wheeler vehicles such as motorcycles and scooters. Participants usually come from the Southern Luzon area and some parts of Manila.

It also features live band performances, a trade fair, exciting games and exhibitions associated with the Transport show competition.
Since Road Rage is the first transport show in Los Baños and is one of the most anticipated activities in February, the sorority continues to improve the whole event each year by changing and adding more categories in the competition, awarding bigger prizes, getting honorable and distinguished judges, revising the judging system, and coming up with better publicity strategies and improved venue preparation and event program, all to tailor fit the trends and requirements of the latest transport show.
