Not for System Generated Errors for drive-thrus. We mark them solved and move on.

I thought that the previous consensus was that mapping drive throughs was an acceptable way to manage traffic reports and "missing" street errors.

Would more specific guidance be to only map them if an error shows up? Basically no premature mapping.

No, because it will say that also when navigating you out of the mall and that makes no sense. It certainly would be more confusing to be told to turn right and left four time at the "name of the mall" rather than the street name you are heading towards. What we need to have Waze do, rather than kludge the map, is nav instructions need to say "towards" instead of "at." And his has been discussed a lot before.

This topic suggests that a wiki entry for driveways would be useful (for NA, or universally).

Guidance for driveways as it currently exists (subject to change pending discussion):
- Driveways should always be private roads.
- Don't map private driveways serving single residences or businesses, unless they are at least 50m long.
- Don't map driveways just to make map problems go away.
- Map driveways when they serve multiple residences. Name them according to the street they lead from, and add house numbers for each residence.

Edit 6 Aug: removed business drive-thrus, set minimum length at 50m.
