It was more of a theoretical set of questions than anything... Didn't think it would get this type of response...

But yes, in the up here in the northeast, they are mostly called a "traffic circle" or a "rotary" by the people, traffic engineers may call them "roundabouts" based on their design, but normal people don't care.

I hate roundabouts. I am always afraid some idiot will not yield to me when entering the roundabout and t-bone me when I am in the circle. I have had a couple of near misses recently. I never had this problem before this intersection was changed to a roundabout.

The way people drive around, a Stop sign means Yield and a Yield sign means look but go full speed ahead. Sometimes people forget to look.

You should come here. Only pussies yield. If you are man enough then you have right of the way 8-)

I remember last summer in Paris in that stupid roundabout where more than 10 streets of all shapes and classification meet. I wanted to be a good driver and yield for those inside the roundabout and when I'm inside those coming in should yield to me. Only I yielded but no one yielded to me. AND I'M NO PUSSY so I reverted to the Saudi style and showed them all who is mssusa :twisted:. I received the dirtiest of looks, but f them all :evil:.
Months later someone told me that unlike all over the world, in France, or at least in that roundabout those inside should yield to those coming in :oops:.
Maybe some Frenchman could confirm.

Back on-topic ;) (in a rather off-topic topic anyway! :D) --

General error (user reported)
Description: gave as the crow flies distance for gas stations!
:?: Yep, if you run out of gas, Waze will send a flock of specially-trained crows to carry you to the nearest station ... that's why we use that measurement. :mrgreen: Marked it "not identified" -- maybe the Wazer will take the hint and come visit the forum for some education regarding what should and should not be reported via the "Map Issues" function. :P
I'm Spil, and I approve this message! :D

Click you heels and say "There's no place like home" three times, then press Navigate->Home or put in your home address.

Description: I could not find the navigation from Pocatello, ID to Houston, TX. Could you fix this? It is not working on both iphone app and the web browser. Thank you, USERID WAS HERE!
Reported on: December 15, 2012

the ID enabled me to PM the user. Now, if he reads his PM he will learn that WAZE has limits on how long a route it can create. :)

Description: The route on the map is showing to go right but the verbal instructions say to turn left. Right on Highway 105 is the correct direction.
Reported on: November 15, 2012

I too have had WAZE tell me verbally to turn the wrong direction.
I think it happened right after an upgrade, a couple of upgrades ago. I reported to support.

Description: The shortest distance between two points is a straight line
Reported on: December 26, 2012

I think you need a better straight line. That joke is old.
Description: Lowes, Chick-fil-A, and Whataburger are all on the north east side of this intersection - Map does not indicate correct placement of these businesses or how to get to them.

I hope he gets the 'insufficient information' e-mail and starts editing. He will then have a chance to put those 'important' landmarks in their proper location.
