HOV is some kind of toll road, right?
How many meters is between the normal road and this HOV road?

I'm sure it's been discussed before, but unless those "dedicated" lanes are at least 150 ft (50 m) away from any other lanes moving in the same direction, limits on cell phone location accuracy would prevent it from working right. As such, speed metrics are probably gathered from both lane types (bus/HOV vs. regular) and aggregated together for an average (read: expected) speed of the whole road.

hi,

i would love to see waze interact by the type of car we display as the navigation method
like: these

race-car : no speed limit under 50km/h
sports-car : no low quality roads (put-holes) or old ones
tuner car : no speed bumps (might scrapes under the car) low riders
monster-truck : allow 4x4 roads
scooter : no hi-ways can't travel on roads above 80 km/h
motorcycle : doesn't pass by no motorcycle urban areas
18-th weelers : takes cares of the no-truck
mobile-crane : wide roads (ask how wide / height of load) (speed limit)
steamroller : makes new roads (loads of data warning)
ciment truck : take care of load limit roads / bridges
bicycles : trails / bicycle lanes preffered
bus : in public transport, might be faster / slower dues to reserved lanes
tow-truck : record roads as private / 4x4 and no low speed recording
yellow cab : no speed recording vs traffic
R-C police car : play a pac-man road hunt (test the driving navigation in the area)
and ask comfirmation for turn restriction
R-V : dosen't take care of no truck but (dosen't hit bridges) fun camping no garage

the bicycle is a nice idea, but it could be build on its own layer and only be access by a second apps that share the main map and let the roads as they currently are,

but this isn't the main topic of this tread !

Thanks

Hi,

i didn't read mutch around but for trucker's in Canada / Quebec i got several usefull info's that could be added to waze for trucking / and rv's for the transit roads and delivery only restricted roads and most of the overpass height's i did put the info's link's in the forum designed for that area. Sorry it's mostly in French but the link's could help gather the informations.

Have fun on the road's, but respect the laws !!
