The image looks like the person did donuts in the middle of an intersection

I'd love the option of sending a response along the lines of "The GPS in your phone sucks. Get an external GPS receiver or a new phone."

Left at an intersection where none have been reported....

Could it be that there IS one in real life but not on the Waze map?

Nope, it's southern CA only. If you hear it up north, it is coming from an import.

So what would a native from north CA say?

That reminds me, is Southern California the only place where people preface the freeway with "the"? I've done a fair bit of traveling around this country, and I don't think I've noticed it anywhere else. Take "the" 210 to "the" 101 and then head south until your hit "the" 5.

I thought it was only CA and all of CA for that matter. Is it just parts of CA?

Here in TN is seems to be "Interstate x" and "Highway everything-else". While in NJ and most of the north east, everything is "Route x" or even just "x".

In NJ I would often take "124 to 78 to 287 to 202 206" (NJ-124, I-78, I-287, US-202 / US-206) and everyone knew what that meant :) To this day I usually just use the numbers unless I am trying to be very clear for someone.

I believe that's a racial slur.

I hope not for this school's sake :)

Sad in many ways... they are looking for an "elimentery" school I assume. And they think it is a missing bridge? The US school systems are doing a wonderful job!

He wants you to activate the "no right turn on red" warning at that intersection, in case he might forget this important instruction next time he drives through there.

Hmm. New feature. Mount phone in car so rear facing camera has view out the windshield. Look for traffic lights. Only provide turn instructions if a green light is seen ahead of the car, otherwise give "wait for light" instruction ;)

1) Not an Error
2) Not a problem with the map
3) You're on a road that has EVERY exit properly numbered and named


Add junction landmarks and at certain zoom levels you will have the numbers :)
