"Lorba Linda"

Mon Feb 10, 2014 4:28 pm

In the CA-91 corridor between Anaheim and Corona, CA, Waze keeps reporting traffic "near Lorba Linda". The city of Yorba Linda is directly north of CA-91 in this area, but Lorba Linda is not an actual location in California and does not appear on the map editor's Seach function; yet, we continually receive reports of this inaccurate location. This does not happen when navigating to destinations, only in the traffic alert pop-ups.

Sample references:

Any help in tracking down this elusive problem would be greatly appreciated.

Understood. I'll install a screen capture app on my phone and try to snap a picture if I get a chance. I also wonder if this is getting aggregated from a 3rd party source like Yelp; obviously that might take more investigation.

Thanks for digging into this. I have observed this happening mostly on SR-91, where some segments have missing city and state data, but which I cannot fix due to insufficient privileges. If you have a chance, you may want to take a look at segments of SR-91 between SR-55 and I-15.

OK, seems the ones I have seen actually ended up having no cit, but did have a state. I'll see if I can find anything else amiss, though.

I've not been able to find one shred of anything fishy on SR-91 segments, and yet the URs keep piling in. Could we just add the pertinent city names to the segments to be on the safe side, or is this again best practices for highway and interstate segments (I honestly don't know)? My thinking is that, wherever Waze is pulling this erroneous city name from, we could override it by providing higher-priority info through the segment info.

Thanks jemay, and thanks for the additional background info. I'd seen it as recently as last Friday or Saturday, so I can personally confirm that the mysterious kraken is still roaming the waters.

Did they suspend all NA updates for two weeks? I thought they had only suspended Landmark-related updates.

I saw that too at http://status.waze.com/. With the updates pushed out on April 4th now, should we close an existing "Lorba Linda" tickets to see if any new ones arise?

Understood. I'll wait until I get further word before I personally do anything with URs related to this issue.

This one still needs help. The editor of this area has errors in turn restrictions, road types, included "CA" in the city name.

You know you're in trouble when the Validator says there are too many errors to report :/ I'm going to be picking up a lot of points here, for better or worse.
