You are not the only one that finds that annoying. It makes it harder to edit the geometry of either one when they are on top of each other.


Indeed I found a UR for a UK motorway junction caused by (apparently) one of the roads being snapped to the landmark rather than the roundabout, but of course because they're aligned it wasn't easy to see, hence why someone made the error in the first place.

For what it's worth, this is why I like even relatively small landmarks to appear on the map.

As we all know, Waze often navigates to the wrong place (to what it thinks is the nearest street). In some instances I've had to get other resources (laptop, printed streetmap) to actually find out where my destination is, and then work out how to navigate what can be a maze of one-way and residential streets to get to the destination. If I could see where it is on the Waze map, then even with Waze's best attempts to mislead me I could still drive straight there.

There are many other reasons too, eg. simply so I know what's around in an unfamiliar area, for spur-of-the moment decisions to call in at a pub, etc.

Could we get some proof of that?

Thank you for the test! I hate speculation (though I do a lot myself) but love facts.

So, if we can exclude landmarks from suppressing traffic. There is only road types left. Plot roads must then suppress traffic? (me speculating)
Do private roads suppress traffic too?
Anything else that could count for report/suppress traffic?
How much below average speed triggers an automatic report?
We know that manual reports don't change routing, it's only for visual alert.

So, the guideline not to snap them to a road is a valid one.


What kind of map problems are you talking about?
