I drove onto a toll road (on purpose) while I had Waze set to avoid them. Currently with that setting on, Waze will pretend the toll road does not exist at all on the map while you drive on it (It does the same thing as would driving somewhere where Waze has no map data). I personally think that instead, Waze should calculate and route you the shortest way to get off the toll road, then resume normal navigation with no tolls.
Is this something that is being worked on or is it just the way the 'avoid toll roads' feature is programmed?
Last time I did something like this Waze was re-routing me for each single segment and terminating my route at the end of the segment. Meaning I'd be on the freeway, and when arriving at the next node (junction with ramp, or even just a two segment junction), the client would say "you have reached your destination". Then it would try to re-route again, pick the next segment, and repeat the instruction cycle.
In my case it may have happened because I've set *all* segments as toll, from the first ramp where you can't leave anymore without paying, until the last ramp or segment where a free entry joins.
Haven't tried this for several months though.
I still have the issue where the Waze client prefers to drive *against the traffic* on a *locked freeway* just to avoid the toll, because the given *illegal and deadly* route is just 10KM, whilst the only free alternative is 180KM long
