Navigation app Waze and data science consultancy firm Thinking Machines have listed Makati and Mandaluyong as the most flood-prone and accident-prone cities in Metro Manila.

The lists stemmed from data gathered from the fourth quarter of 2018 to the present by Waze and Thinking Machines  from flood and accident reports per square kilometer in the Philippines.

“The data garnered in collaboration with the Thinking Machines indicate that more can be done to encourage road safety and alleviate congestion, and we hope to continually leverage the cooperation of our 2.85 million active user base in the Philippines to help prevent accidents by providing crowdsourced updates on heavy traffic, floods and road closures in real-time,” said Sarah Rodriguez, Waze Philippines country manager.

Thinking Machines chief executive officer Stephanie Sy mirrored Rodriguez’s observation, saying “Waze data offers a wealth of insight about safety and traffic conditions on our roads, and we hope this information can be used to design policies and programs that improve transportation for everyone.”
