Key PointsSimplicityIt is not a goal to model the physical roadway lane-by-lane. Doing so often leads to unnecessary complexity--which means a cluttered map, confusing verbal directions, and lots and lots (and lots!) of extra map maintenance.
The number one problem with new editors is creating dual carriageways when single works just fine and in many cases better.[ img ]
This road was dual carriaged by a new editor, It has now been returned to a single carriageway
If you are unsure ask!!!!!
Many new users don't come to the forum or respond to PM'sIf we get no response we will recommended to Waze HQ that that editor be blocked from editing.
