Problem:

very hazardous road with cars parked permanently on both sides causing very narrow dangerous road in both directions with no warming. not really wrong directions however

Maybe tell them 'This should not be reported as a map problem. Changes to the map require many days to take effect. Use the Hazard or Closure report feature. Hazard and Closure reports take effect immediatly. '
Looks to me like a good place to report some cars on the shoulder of the road. :)


Why not downgrade the road if it's indeed an ongoing problem there? Is that segment noted as a primary road? There are lots of roads in Pittsburgh that way, 37th street between Butler and Penn, for instance. It should be an alley, ffs.

The e-mail that WAZE sends shows the location and gives a link to the report in the map editor.
It also shows the date of the report.
If THAT doesn't 'jog' the memory of the reporter, what will?


Waze sends me a broken jpg along with the name of the road and whatever is fashionable to call that area that day.

I drive to somewhere between 10 and 50 different places with waze every week. There's no way I can remember exactly what I was talking about every single time, which is why I tend to make my reports verbose unless they're obvious, such as "redraw intersection".

Then again, most of the time I get a form letter in response and the issue is marked "fixed" without anything being done.

The other was an "official" but unsigned bridge name. It was needed because otherwise, the bridge above and street below wold have shared a name, and likely got a few drivers lost

Otherwise, I agree, caling out bridges is overkill. Some drivers will complain if you don't, other drivers will complain if you do. Most will have no problem either way.


That's the custom in Pittsburgh. Roads don't usually keep the same name over bridges (s 10th str does, but none others do), and they're all either named or called "[name of street] bridge"

The only case I know of in Pittsburgh where the disambiguation actually does something is 31st street, where 31st actually continues underneath the 31st street bridge. But then again, this is a town where US Truck 19 is concurrent with itself for a few hundred yards.

Truck 19 Links?



It's not a Waze issue, it's a DOT issue. Truck 19 follows 376/22/30 West through the Ft. Pitt Tunnel as it travels south, and then loops back via a ramp under that highway to 376/22/30 East and exits onto 51 South. Northbound, it gets off of 51 North onto the same ramp that Truck 19 South exits off of 376/22/30 West from, continues onto 376/22/30 East and goes through the Ft. Pitt Tunnel. The wiki page for Truck 19 Pittsburgh has a map and such.

So as you approach the tunnel driving East, you're on 376 East, 22 East, 30 East, Truck 19 North, and Truck 19 South. And this is, ironically, the best way to enter the city from a dramatic standpoint according to the chamber of commerce. First you see the confusing signs after driving through the pastoral landscape of the countryside that sits between the airport and the city, then you go through a tunnel, get greeted with a large cityscape, and realize you're in completely the wrong lane.

They leave out the wrong way concurrency and the wrong lane bit in their press release though.

I've had conversatations like this:

<me> Let me know the exact destination address and I'll see what I can fix here, thanks!
<Reporter> The location I was navigating to
<me> I don't have that information, I can only see about 500 feet around where you were driving
<Reporter> <crickets>
... 4 days later.. Marked Not Identified.


And I've sent reports like:

"This is where this grocery store with an address of 'foo' should be. Not on the other side of the tracks, in a park."

And have gotten responses of "That's nice. Waze uses data from X to set locations and we're not changing it."

…"the map error you reported was fixed by [REDACTED]"

Is this a feature request for a new "Hazard on Shoulder"?


I usually do those as map chats, with a description, if'n I can't pick them up myself.

Well, if it was a bit less 'general' I might know what to do about it...
