It's not so much in this case 'See if it's allowed'...but...

Anyway, I just want to get a sense for what other editors think here. Why else would it route to a dead end road?

I've seen a bunch of these as well. The other theory that has been put forth is that waze is attempting to route a u-turn and you are seeing the route in but not the route back out.

I never understood what to enter for speeds for cameras. However, they all seem to have an edit date in the last few days (including one that says last edited by me today which I haven't touched in a while). Many have oddly low numbers now. I suspect that the speed camera numbers have all been lowered by a factor of 0.62 in the US as well.

Here is the one that says that I updated it today. The max speed is listed as 35. I'm fairly certain it used to be 56.
Here is one with an update date of today and a max speed of 28 where I'm fairly certain the posted speed limit is 45 mph.
Just to the north, is one with an update date of Dec. 17 and max speed of 25 (the speed limit might be 40 mph there, but I'm reasonably certain it is not 25 mph).
Here is one with an update date of yesterday and an unreasonalbly low max speed number of 19.

Can't you add another Alternate name that IS correct and then delete the one that is wrong?

Sometimes I set my starting point as destination to listen to the voice-prompts to report some map issues which I wouldn't have gotten aware of routing to my real destination. Especially a lot of turn restrictions and one ways were discoverd.
This way of seeing more potential map failures is surely influencing the "ignored route URs".
Should change my behaviour - it's a pitty from map quality's point of view?!


I suggest the WAZE Livemap Navigation extension http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/118389. It will show you the turn-by-turn directions you would get when navigating from one location to another in Livemap.

Most of the automatic errors I have seen are crazy!

Most show WAZE routing people down single segments that terminate in a proper node.

For some strange reason, people tend to continue down the highway they were driving on, rather than turning down the dead end stub and WAZE complains about that! :)

I can't see any reason that WAZE tried to route them down the small side road, especially when it dead ends immediately.

I have also seen a strange new tendency for WME to 'fast scroll' in the direction I have been dragging the map if I don't 'drop' the map quickly.

Rather annoying!

Then there is a lot of 'oh snap!' when WME gets lost while updating data and crashes.

This is crazy! It must see or think this is in a different city. I've cleared 250 of these new system errors. I think I fixed 10 of them. Feel like I'm wasting my time. Wasn't even soft turns in this area.

Most of them were errors that had already been fixed (routing onto alleys that were probably set as Service Road instead of Parking Lot or incorrect 1-way/2-way roads). I did, however come across more than one that needed to be fixed so can see this being useful once the reports from old data are cleared.


Makes you think of how many of the "General Errors" with no description and there route was cut off so you couldn't tell what the problem was were cleared. Now Waze shows us better routes thru errors. I would say more than half I cleared South of Chicago, I found the error.

Which is how it works now. Does nothing for fixing the damage done by Cartouche in the past, and being unable to see what state+country the alternates belong to is a bit of an annoyance.

Except when it isn't.

The alternate Street is "Main St" in "Westlake, Other, United States". The primaryStreetID is "Main St" in "Westlake, Ohio, United States". A bunch of this stuff is likely leftover damage from Cartouche, but the problem is, is if there was *no* primaryStreetID, the alternates are uneditable in WME until one is added. Fortunately that can all be done without intermediate saves.

Only after added a primary Street is applied. It's a WME UI prohibition.

In addition alternates don't show state or country information even tho that is part of the City (object) the Street (object) references. So smudges across states and/or countries can exist in the alternates and it's not directly visible as such in WME.

Updating WMECH include that info for the alternate list should be straight forward and I'll be doing so to my own fork this weekend.
