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.

I know how to drive a stick shift (depress clutch, select gear, ease off clutch while depressing gas pedal)... Wait, are your pedals backwards over there too?? Normal cars go Clutch, Brake, Gas (left to right).

Also, WTH is a "Zebra Crossing"? The old lady should be in the "Crosswalk" so she doesn't get a ticket for jaywalking...

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

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?

Received 2 of these, this one made it all the way to the closure.

This road closes anytime we have a significant snowfall, like this last week (not that I truly expect out of towners to know that). This last storm created 2 avalanches with in ski areas that killed two people (a very uncommon phenomenon), so this road may not open for another week or it may open tomorrow. That's not my beef.

What are people expecting from their GPS??? If they watched or listened to any road report, they would know Emerald Bay was closed. They passed at least 2 roadside signs stating the road was closed, they had to pass at least one CALTRANS display (CMS) describing the closure and pointing them to a CALTRANS radio station that describes it in audio for them.

I can and have created breaks in the passes that won't open until spring so Waze won't route someone through there. I can't keep up with and Waze doesn't update often enough for the short term closures.

So do they really expect Waze to be so real time that it knows the road conditions better that CALTRANS? Do they drive without looking out the window? Now I know how AlanoftheBerg feels when editors don't read the Wiki.

Thanks for letting me vent, I feel better.

Don't forget not everybody knows Waze's systems as well as we do. This person probably didn't really want to report a map problem but rather a hazard of some kind to help others.

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?
