Is it only area managers?
I'm an area manager, but not of that area. It is an "editable" area for me.
The lock is based on the rank of the user who last edited/locked the segment...
An Area Manager is typically a level 2 (4 cones), so if someone of a higher rank locks it and it is outside the area you manage, then you are out of luck. If it's INSIDE the area you manage, you can override any lock including those of the Waze Staff (level 6).
To find out what level you are, find a segment you've edited and select it. In the properties look at either the "Created By:" or " Updated By:" fields, after your username your rank will be in parentheses.
