The Philippines rank differently on each. It varies being one of the worst, and also one of the best. Interestingly, our country managed to grab a top spot.

Here are the factors Waze used to rank Global Driver Satisfaction Index:

    Traffic – Density and driving conditions
    Safety – Risk of driving
    Driver Services – Car services (e.g. gas stations, parking)
    Road Quality – Infrastructure
    Socio-economic – Access to cars and gas price impact (data by World Bank)
    Wazeyness – helpfulness within the Waze community

Higher score is better.

As for the Ranked list of satisfaction for our largest metros by population – a score of
3.9 for Manila, Quezon City , Makati, Dasmariñas, Bacoor, Taguig, Valenzuela, San Jose del Monte.

Overall, the Philippines ranked 9th of the Worst with a score of 3.9.

The safety and services ranking may raise a few eyebrows. While services of sprawling gas stations and their competitive offerings are great, parking services are still not worthy to be the best. And ranking 4th best in terms of safety? We would like to know more about that.

On a city level, Manila reported the worst traffic, with Rio de Janeiro, Sao Paulo, and Jakarta not far behind.
