What’s the best Indonesian city to drive in? Which is the worst? You probably have an answer.

Driver Services – Access to gas stations and easy parking
Socio Economic – Access to cars and impact of gas prices
Wazeyness – Happiness and helpfulness of the Waze community (as measured by reports “thanked” by other drivers and driver moods selected within the app).
