I especially like the single toll road segment...

Most of the town has been like this though.


Please watch that ramp from Morton to York. I've seen some very bad routing solutions due to ramps between streets. Ramps have a much higher priority than streets, so the router will go out of its way to get that ramp bonus in some cases. According to the guidelines, ramps are only to be used for major highways and freeways, never at-grade. As I recall, short-cuts / turn lanes / whatever you want to call that segment should have the same road type as the highest road it touches.

Lowest, according to the wiki entry on at-grade connectors. (You had me sweating for a second!) ;)

I map them as parking lot roads so there's no traffic reports on them. We have some really big cemeteries around here so mapping the drivable paths seems like a good idea.

Are you sure they didn't really install one there? I had to blindly create one that wasn't on Google, Bing or even the county's own maps when I was editing in Oxford, MS the other day. But it had still managed to be there long enough to generate enough GPS points to figure it out.

That's some of the screwiest road editing I think I've ever seen on here!

Nob? Or n00b?


How to phrase this delicately? "Nob" = English slang for a part of the male anatomy. ;)

That certainly makes me think differently about the neighborhood in San Francisco called Nob Hill!

How about that — I got a report here in Alabama a few days ago saying exactly the same thing. I'm getting the impression there are thousands of users who don't understand how Waze works, exactly, or think us editors are magicians who can read minds… :ugeek:

2012 doesn't surprise me... I've had a few level 2 and 3 editors in my area who've been members that long do even worse. I know we all learn from our mistakes but how do you hang out here that long without reading the wiki? LOL.
