I don't recall if this was a USA only set of recommendations and the page should be noted as such, or do we believe it is universal enough?

Thanks, Kent. That's a good first swipe. I made one change to "marked as Private Road" to read "set as Private Road type" because the first (marked) could be interpreted as "named."

I think some prettification, adding some example images would be good to move it to perfection.

I am not sure what the international community's opinion of this is. I would hope for universal application.

I lost track of this one. I plowed through the 11 pages again and I believe I have captured our general consensus in this new Driveway page.

If anyone thinks I misunderstood any of the comments or recommendations in this thread when I translated the page let's discuss here so we can resolve it.

We can add some visuals of some of the examples. I think this thread has a number of good ones we can consider. If there are other layout recommendations please let me know. I tried to keep it as simple as possible.

I also added a note on Road Types leading back to this new page.

I don't recall if this was a USA only set of recommendations and the page should be noted as such, or do we believe it is universal enough?

As to the second part about a wiki entry? It took a great deal of time to filter through all the pages of comments on this & even to find this thread.

I fear that others will not take the time to find this & make their own calls.
I noticed a UR requesting a road near a driveway, and a rank 5 is saying that Waze typically does not add driveways, even though this one is aprox 500m and serves two homes:
https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... TT&env=usa

I will discuss this with the editor first, but it sure would be nice to link back to a wiki entry saying what we do or do not do.


This sounds like the very situation where a driveway is needed and permissible. Try to contact the Level 5 and point them toward this thread if necessary.

@kentsmith9 was doing a lot of the Wiki work, and may already have something going with this that never got completed. I'm hoping he'll see this and respond.

I've searched the wiki & do not see an entry yet. Should I create something on the Wiki, or wait for more guidance from the rank 4-6 people I see discussing this issue a few months ago?


I think it's been accepted that long driveways like you describe are permissible to be added to the map, but I would recommend not going through the effort of drawing in driveways unless there's a known problem. Especially if there are other more productive things you can do to the map in your area.

There is no "Driveway" road type in Waze. There is Private Road, which is the road type that is used on the occasion that a private driveway is to be mapped. Parking Lots are mapped using the Parking Lot Road type.

Where driving in a parking lot is still makes it a parking lot not a driveway

Dead end? Most perhaps, but certainly nowhere near all. Many are loop driveways or have access to two different streets. I really don't think we need any decision on what a driveway is. I think everyone knows what a driveway is. That isn't the issue here. The issue is how or when to map a driveway.

Driveway should come off a road or street or private street or private road
Driveway could be dirt or hard ball, it should have one way in the other end should be a deadend. To the
Building, it does not have a name it just tells people which house number to turn into,

Waiting on the ruling for this
