Driveways should be to single houses not business, only to resident

Remember that we do not have a road type called "driveways", so this conversation is more about when to map driveways than when to call something a driveway.

That is dependent on length. I hope you read the entire thread.

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

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.

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.

So, did this topic die? I've recently restarted editing in my area & plan to add driveways in rural areas as private roads if they are >~100m.
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.
