AFAIK (and have just re-tested, at least on the INTL infrastructure) the "Avoid Highways" option actually avoids just Freeways, for at least one year long. Hope this helps you/them.

While a good idea, what's to stop any average driver from using that mode?

A ticket for driving ilegally?

An economic route type was promised many months ago IIRC, and should IMHO be implemented regardless of the planned low-road-types-pruning replacement.

An optional segment slope parameter or a "too steep" checkbox and corresponding client preference might be necessary for some vehicle types.

@shawndoc: There's nothing crazy on it at all. No, this would be the correct order. But I suspect that (for any reasons beyond this thread and our knowledge) regularly appearing new (social) features are being considered more important than finally completing or fixing the existing ones.

Cars pulling trailers would be useful. In the UK these are required to go 10MPH below any speed of 60MPH or 70MPH.

Nothing is more annoying than seeing Waze plot a zigzag pattern through side streets instead of the (more sensible) route of taking primary streets with a minimum of turns and intersections.


I definetely agree !
I have got zigzag routes many times just to save a few meters instead of going straight by the major roads, saving time and money (brakes and gas).

Gas savings routes would be a quite reasonable benefit to get this feature back.

Best regards to all active and proactive wazers on the road, reporting online info, or behind the keyboards editing those valuables streets and turns !

There are a lot of width, height and weight restrictions around where I drive. If other vehicle types are going to be added, we would need to have some way of adding these restrictions to the map and navigating around them for larger/heavier vehicles.
