Drivers in the Philippines among least satisfied in the world, says Waze study

Drivers in the Philippines are among the least satisfied in the world, according to Waze’s 3rd annual global Driver Satisfaction Index which analyzes the driving experience of millions of monthly active Waze users in 39 countries and 217 metros to create a single numeric score, from satisfying (10) to miserable (1). 

In Southeast Asia, Malaysia has been ranked as the best place to drive (number 21 globally). Singapore, Indonesia and The Philippines are ranked 30, 36 and 39 respectively.

In APAC, the Philippines’ driving dissatisfaction trails behind that of Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia due to unhappiness with traffic jam length, commute time and helpfulness of the driving community.

In contrast, Singapore is among the top five countries with the best driver services worldwide, thanks to efficient access to gas stations and easy parking. Russia, Argentina, Hungary and United States rounded out the top five.

Globally, Venezuela is the only country with a 10 on the happiness index; Singapore scored a 2.3. European cities dominate the top of the overall index, occupying eight of the leading ten spots.

While Waze has more than 90 million monthly active users globally in more than 185 countries, Waze chose to focus on countries and metros with more than 40,000+ monthly active users to ensure data accuracy and fair market comparisons.
