Very good advice, thank you jasonh300.

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:

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 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?

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.
