3. Manila, Philippines
Out in the Philippines, Manila finds itself on the list as one of the top worst cities for driving. In fact, residents perceive traffic congestion as their number one problem – above respiratory ailments, piles of trash, drowning, and even being assaulted. Yikes! Back in 2001, Manila had borrowed $60 million from the World Bank for “transit-related” activities. The city utilized the funds to help promote the use of non-motorized transport, but much of the campaign revolved around asking residents to please stop driving. At least they said please.
