Oh, it seems to be finding legitimate problems.
The problem seems to be that WAZE is routing drivers over crazy paths!

https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=8&lat ... s=20679355

Here, WAZE told 12 drivers to make an illegal U turn and one seems to have followed the directions!

and
https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=8&lat ... TTTFTTTTFT
here it was routing them the wrong way along a one way highway.

The reports are not what worries me, it is the routes that WAZE was issuing!

The reports are a red flag saying something is wrong in the routing!

Maybe some are due to revcons or other 'left over map problems' from the older map editor but they are an indication of problems in the ROUTING rather than problems in map editing.

Give it a second, they'll disappear. Or at least some of us are having problems consistently seeing them.

They appear and disappear for me even if there only only a few in the area. It is only these orange "don't follow route" ones that are affected for me as well. Even some red "don't follow route" ones that are not affected by the display issue here.

There are also quite a few where I can't make heads nor tails about what the green line is representing.

Although there is no necessity that every area be assigned to a city. The sea of orange in MD (may it rest in peace) did identify some segments where the ZIP code boundaries extend beyond the census designation using the same name.

I'm guessing that is how the areas were label in the census/tiger data used as the base map.

I had a few of these show up in Reno. I had already fixed a few back in December which this new batch wanted me to look at again.

Even though the Save is unavailable, making other legitimate changes seem to allow you to save all those changes as well.

Edit: Jemay already answered the save problem...

Same thing has been happening in the Sacramento area...

This segment hasn't been updated since March 2012, which would be the most recent date it could have been set incorrectly and allowed traffic the other way. Now, true enough, Waze does route against 1-way segments, but there would need to have been significant other errors nearby to cause this.

Could it also be, that this segment was a victim of the automatic "turn this 2-way road into 1-way because nobody seems to be driving it" change? Recently, at least long after edited.

I think it depends how active the editors in the area tend to be. I've been editing in areas where the editors have be less active in the past year and the information has generally been quite useful. Moving over to my city where I've been actively keeping up with everything and 80% of these reports ten to be duds.
