Sounds like someone who would do better with the Rand McNally Walmart Atlas.

User performed a U-Turn and went on his/her way. I guess Waze needs to keep train schedules and route accordingly :lol:


Enhancement Requests:
"Delete Train" (under new Traffic Removal menu)


User could've set a short-term closure from the app for this one.

Me too. I wonder what happens if we use a browser other than Chrome. Hang on, let me check that...

Well, in Chrome, FF, and IE10 and IE8 they all resolve to Google. I even tried a system that uses OpenDNS instead of Google's DNS resolver, and it still points to Google.


It may depend on where in the world you are.

Well that's stupid. There's not quite enough room to jam a speed camera in between those two signs.

daknife wrote:I don't think this is actually a Jolly Driver. Last night I cleared several map problems where the system was complaining that drivers weren't following the suggested routes. The problem is every one of the five such MP's I closed were indicating that Waze had been telling drivers to leave a state hwy (minor hwy type) and turn onto a dead end street. Before closing I skimmed up and down the Hwy in question looking for a bad turn restriction, disconnect or something else that could cause the routing engine to seek an alternate route. But I couldn't find anything.

So this driver may have actually been routed down a dead end road, and the made the report when they realized it was a dead end. My opinion that report is legit, and indicates a minor problem the routing engine might be having.


Sounds like an issue of the dead-end u-turn being enabled. I see this a lot when people are determined to take a route that they think is faster, and Waze is trying to get them to go a different way. Any dead-end on the route with a U-turn enabled will cause this type of routing...at least until they get to a point where their route is actually faster.

That's about 40% of those errors. Another 40% is the directed u-turn between the lanes of a divided highway and the remaining 20% are routes "around the block" to accomplish a u-turn. It seems that users don't want to make u-turns.


Around the block at least makes sense to the users and they see that it wants them to go back the way they came. But the dead end routing tells you to turn onto the dead end, then tells you nothing about making a u-turn at the end and the next instruction is to turn back onto the road you started on.

Whenever I see one of these, I go on a end-node-u-turn killing frenzy in the surrounding area.

The issue isn't with U-turns in this case...it's the issue with waze routing people down dead-ends to make a U-turn at the end of the dead end, which could be a mile from where they turned off. If it would just say "Make a U-turn", things would be much better.
