You might have seen our recent story on the Metropolitan Manila District Authority’s (MMDA) Metro Manila Accident Reporting and Analysis (MMARAS) 2018 report, which showed how dangerous Metro Manila’s roads were last year. If you haven’t, you can check it out here.

The MMARAS report revealed, among other things, that there were 383 recorded incidents with fatalities in 2018, resulting in 394 deaths. It focused on three key roads in Metro Manila, namely: EDSA, C5, and Commonwealth Ave. The deadliest of the three? C5

There were 27 fatal accidents reported along C5 last year. EDSA followed with 21, then Commonwealth Avenue with 10.

Note that in terms of total incidents, including non-fatal accidents and damages to property, EDSA topped the list with 17,276 incidents, most of which happened along the stretches in between Timog Avenue and Kamias Road. C5 came second with 8,552 incidents, reported mostly in the areas between SM Aura and Market! Market! in Bonifacio Global City.
