I ran into that the other day. Short-term construction completely blocking the road but there was no way to close the road.

The report closures function doesn't work for the road you are already on?

It was intended to block some of the outgoing arrows. There is no way to directly avoid someone else reaching the same closure in the mid of road segment you're stuck at :roll: just indirectly, with no possible route continuation.
Additionally, in such cases, it sometimes likes to offer just some really random arrows from pretty large neighborhood :roll:

As the URs are anonymous, for such case it would be sufficient to see at least the client session's temporary ID. But, well, the anonymity would be gone.

The user wanted to express his frustration of not being able to reach another side of the road. As nobody came to help, he finally gave up.

It was in a parking lot, over 3 blocks from the nearest overpass (and it was properly mapped too)

Ah, the "from-the-sofa" reporters? Then you can guess four different places around the country with a missing overpass :-)

So, you ignored waze and took a different route, then complain when you aren't able to make a left?

Isn't this the reason we use Waze? Perhaps to avoid traffic?


I had Waze do that to me a few times, it would tell me to take an exit, then immediately hop right back on, no routing down side streets or anything to avoid traffic. Over the weekend at a complex intersection where two highways meet, it told me to exit to highway, then wanted me to follow the ramps back onto the highway I came from. It should be solved now.

(n00b here). I found 3 bogus user reported errors on my regular commute. All 3 were reported the same day (Sept 30). After looking at the FAQ and examining the map around each I marked each as solved.

I'm guessing that other folks who are new to waze often report map errors by accident as they fumble around with an unfamiliar UI.

EDIT: with regard to user reported map issue, what would you say the 'real issues' to 'bogus issues' ratio is (i.e. signal to noise)?
