I am sure you could aleviate potential Waze issues by allowing someone to designate a road is closed and having several people, or a location admin approve the report. Say, once 10 people agree, or a local area admin approve it, then it will be in effect for a particular time.
Having the ability to set roads as accessible during parts of the day are also a good idea. For example, certain HOV lanes are only accessible in a specific direction at particular times of day, and are permanent. These types of settings could easily have some sort of Waze admin approval and will fix the overal issue.

I get system generated map problems all the time for closed roads. The problem is that waze will use old GPS data to create new map problems. I am entirely convinced that this is a waze problem, not an issue with construction workers keeping waze on in construction zones.

Hate to remove hundreds or thousands of speed, red light, and dummy cameras that were misreported in the application (many from the exact location of a home where Wazers were obviously playing around)?
Imagine being routed 60 minutes out of the Waze because someone thought it was cute to close a road. No thanks.
