Yep, the nubs in Louisville do this to me all the time.. But if I don't prune it they draw everywhere. I have a canned pm I send...

View shows two paths ahead blocked off with poles. Okay, no problem. Now turn around.

Specifically, this person seems to think the name of the street that hangs across the road is the name of the street they are on, rather than the name of the street they are crossing.

I see this a ton too, especially when the streets are different names on both sides. Even though the segment is un-named in the middle, when you turn it of course announces the street you're turning to but they I guess expect the other name, or don't realize the name changed, etc..

I've had at least half a dozen UR's saying "This street name is XYZ" when, yep, it is. But the other side is ABC ;)

Update Request: Wrong driving direction
Took me to a dead end road. Not destination

And yes, he made the UR at a dead end but there is no indication of where he wanted to really go, so how am I supposed to know?

Mind reading, crystal ball, maybe I close my eyes and pick a place on the map?

This is one impressively long note that says absolutely nothing.

Problem: The map show where to find 109 La Fontenay Ct Louisville,Ky from New Cut Road louisville,Ky. The map show use Outer Loop then I-65 North Louisville then get I-264 east then get exit of Shelbyville Rd that is waste time. Best way is New Cut Rd to I-265 North and approx 25-30 mins to get exit of Shelbyville Rd then turn left then contiune straight on Shelbyville Rd till you see La Fontenay Ct on right. Use I-265 easy fast less traffics. Use I-264 to get Shelbyville Rd too much traffics

khaytsus(5) on February 01, 2014

Oh god, you're right. I have one editor in my area who does this a LOT and I've seen it other times and I've always thought "Why in the world did someone draw this random L shaped path here??" That must be it, exactly.

I believe the problem there may be that some people use "turn not allowed" when they mean "Waze is telling me not to make this turn, but I think it's obviously the right turn to take here."

...you'd be hiring a staff of editors to maintain Waze, rather than doing it yourself.

Wait. Maybe that explains your score. Confirm or deny that you have a secret nickel cache.
