Whoa...this just completely blew my mind. How about the gear pattern? Is first on the left or the right? I know Reverse is totally in the wrong place on my BMW. I've also heard that the turn signal stalk is on the right side and the key goes on the left.

Description:
roundabouts are called traffic circles
We can't make a Connecticut specific translation, although, what are they called around the US? Which is the most popular? I know "roundabout" is a British term, maybe it doesn't fit the US English translation.


I had never used the term "roundabout" until I started editing Waze maps. However, I knew exactly what it was. I called them traffic circles before, however they weren't prevalent enough that I used that term on any kind of regular basis either.

General error somewhere along the lines of: This street has the wrong street name. I drive here every day and report this every day but nobody ever puts int he correct street name. Please fix the street name...

continues another 1000 characters or so but never once includes the correct *^%@%<# street name! Come on! You had to have pulled over and typed for 10 minutes to include this description, but you couldn't type in a 7 character street name? What the hell is wrong with you!?

great. What is the name of the road?


I don't think it would be unreasonable to change it to "Not Buck Johnson". It wouldn't be incorrect and might clue the reporter into sending another UR with the correct name.

Would this have happened to be in Westwego, LA? :lol:

Stafford, TX. Another case of someone trying to navigate using the report screen. I still don't get how that happens.
