Re: Toll roads option in the client

Hi, I'm an editor in the United States. I've been getting complaints from people being routed onto toll roads, but they claim "avoid toll roads" is selected in the client.

I have verified in the editor the roads are properly marked as toll roads, and can confirm I'm never routed onto them myself (I have avoid toll roads checked) when going on trips where the toll roads are unquestionably faster.

Any suggestion on what those drivers should do? I'm guess try toggling it off and on a few times, and if it doesn't work, try reinstalling Waze?

Toll roads option in the client  Topic is solved

Hi guys,

As we agreed, we will enable the "Avoid toll roads" option in the client in each country separately, when we feel (based on your feedback) that we have enough info to start with.

FYI - "avoid toll roads" option has been added to the client in the Netherlands, Hungary and UK. (Menu
-> Settings -> Navigation -> Avoid toll roads ).

Please feel free to test this and let us know if you encounter any issues.

If you feel that 90% (or so) of the toll roads in your country have been properly updated - please send us note via our support page.

I will inform in this thread once toll roads have been added to a specific country.

Thanks!

Toll roads have been enabled in Canada, Belgium and Latvia.

Moreover, I previously announced that toll roads have been enabled in Hungary but apparently it didn't work. It should be OK now.

Please let me know if you encounter any issues.

Thanks!
