We already do that and 98 times out of 100 they just ignore you or don't read the message to begin with :cry:

Sounds pretty familiar :-(

Funny :evil:

My translation in PT is something like "at the roundabout exit to the left" with the emphasis on the "exit". But yes sometimes people will get confused.

It _is_ worse, it _is_ "turn left" in our translation (and I suspect in many other as well). And wazers do complain, for years - desperately. And I can hardly think of an idiom, which would match both a numbered exit and a left/right drive through :-|

at the roundabout, take the exit to the left
at the roundabout, take the exit to the right
at the roundabout, take the exit straight
[...]
And if they still complain, maybe a full blown instruction set to comply with the roundabout rules below (right next to home) http://binged.it/ZxCz47

You can emphasize the "exit" as strong as you want, but I'd bet that "at the roundabout, take the exit to the left" from "Rua Garcia de Orta" to "Rua da Estação Agronómica Nacional" will never get a broader acceptance :roll: Even if the roundabout were 1/3 of the size.

IMHO from some 10-15-20 meter diameter upwards there should be only numbered exits. Howgh.

The location would possibly still (not)exist, but noone would be (un)aware of it. What's better/worse? :?

Beside this, Waze has always been observed to use some other type of time continuum. (At least the units like next, soon, later etc. were never translatable using the known SI constants.)

I ran into that the other day. Short-term construction completely blocking the road but there was no way to close the road.

The report closures function doesn't work for the road you are already on?

It was intended to block some of the outgoing arrows. There is no way to directly avoid someone else reaching the same closure in the mid of road segment you're stuck at :roll: just indirectly, with no possible route continuation.
Additionally, in such cases, it sometimes likes to offer just some really random arrows from pretty large neighborhood :roll:

As the URs are anonymous, for such case it would be sufficient to see at least the client session's temporary ID. But, well, the anonymity would be gone.

and there were 4 identical reports right on top of each other.

The user wanted to express his frustration of not being able to reach another side of the road. As nobody came to help, he finally gave up.

It was in a parking lot, over 3 blocks from the nearest overpass (and it was properly mapped too)

Ah, the "from-the-sofa" reporters? Then you can guess four different places around the country with a missing overpass :-)

I do not wonder. Unfortunately the UR messages are not helpful at all with reminding s/o on the source of their reported error. If I get a response on my UR, I miss my comment, there is no mention of the start, target, not even the snippets of my driven and recommended routes the editor is able to see in the WME. If the map snippet contains just an unnamed white vertical bar of the street I've driven over, with white surrounding and no other visual features as a hint on the report position, when the client is still not capable of jumping to the corresponding position on its own map, then I'm often literally blind and don't know anymore where the hell I was and what did I actually report in this particular UR

Sent from a touch display, which took care of perfectly scrambling my thoughts.
