Expect candies on all types of road. I do not have a valid example of candies on private roads at hand but there are candies on walking ways, too.

The client software NEEDS to make it clear to the user.

Perhaps some voice directions would help.
I would suggest verbal instructions be given to train the users in the proper submitting of hazard and map reports.

The client could key off of the users 'experience level' and give novice users very detailed instructions, asking them if they are submitting the report in order to have the map changed or do they want to report an immediate hazard or condition so that other drivers are alerted.

After the user submits a few reports, the questions could become less detailed.

Experienced users would need no verbal cues at all or very terse ones.

Of course, it would take the fun out of 'Jolly Drivers'.

How could we live without priceless gems such as these?

Wish we could set the stop-light sequence timing but that is beyond our power!

I've got two worse examples on my daily commute: the Christmas goodies were placed out in a field and up on a hillside, at least 100 yards away from any road segment on the Waze map (not even a walking trail or a railroad). They'll be stuck there until Waze takes them away, unless someone goes Wazing with snowshoes. :P

When I turn on the GPS layer there, the segment of I-81 that he's on gets completely hidden by the arrows ... it's exactly where it should be based on the historical GPS tracks, the user's GPS track, and the location of the UR.

My response (if I ever get the chance to give one again :roll:) -- "Um, yes ... that highway is US-11, which runs right beside where you're traveling on I-81 N -- what the problem is?" :lol:

Could this be the shields misplacement issue?

Don't think so ... I scanned over the area in the client, and the few I-81 shields that do show (most just show "I-81 S" and "I-81 N") are all right on I-81 ... and there are no US highway shields on US-11.
I'm Spil, and I approve this message! :D

Um that's almost always a Bing plotting error. Go search the location in Bing and make an update request. Usually they get fixed after a while.

Is that the one that always pulls away as you get to the bus stop so you gotta run after it?
