One answer I often give, and have done myself too many times to count, is to take the suggested route several times to teach Waze the speed of those segments it is using. Once it learns, it will stop routing you that way.

Waze suggests long detour

Hey all,

I have an interesting routing question. I've observed Waze behaving this way multiple times. Admittedly, sometimes there is traffic going north because of a red light, but the traffic to turn left is often greater and extends several blocks south of the position from where I took that screenshot.

In this image, you see the route Waze is suggesting. Instead of continuing north, it is suggested that I turn left and go around the short, three block segment if I were to continue straight.

This is the route that I often have to choose as the alternate.

Interestingly enough, when I bring up the alternate routes screen, almost always, the preferred route has the same ETA of the route I take (the one in the second screenshot).

Is there anything I can do in the editor or as a driver to show Waze that it is wrong?

I'd appreciate your thoughts!

Old topic, but I'm bumping just to say that I've been taking Waze's suggested route for months now and .... it's actually faster than going straight.

It's not always 100% since it depends on the timing of the street lights, but more often than not it's actually faster.
