Quick question: I always assumed that Waze stored road speed based on time of day and road speed to go straight or make a turn (based on the navigation routes I would get). However, when I select a segment, it just shows the average speed for that segment. So is this information telling me I was wrong with my assumption?
I think this might be a useful read for you:

Meantime...'average' A-B and B-A speeds is an easily pulled data chunk from a segment, so Tim said 'Sure, let's put it in'. Real time data and 'Time of day data' is not, so far as I know.
Yeah... I saw that wiki article, which is where I got my knowledge from. So it seems like I am correct and this data is just a total average.
Our best guess as to what it exactly is, is that it is an average of all the timeslots. It does change over time as drives across segments are processed, but is a synthetic attribute that we cannot change with the editor.
It's useful inferring data pollution, potentially wrongly set one ways, etc.
