Here's a UR about the issue, apparently from a trucker:

It is up to the waze editing community to add the truck restrictions to the waze map to make any such designation useful. There is a brief discussion here regarding which roads should be designated as prohibited to trucks. Feel free to use you experience and add your input there.


I'll direct him to the forum post CBenson mentioned.

Just to add: It's true that editors have to set the restrictions before the setting could be effective. Do we know that the setting iS ready to be deployed and is only waiting for us to do the restrictions? It's hard to know which of the many tasks editors have to do should get top priority. There's so much work to do on the map!

When waze announces, that it will enable vehicle type selection in client, only then majority of community will start mapping restrictions for trucks or other vehicles. We already know what happened to house numbers.

Hi,

Dunno if that's been asked for before, but an option for selecting the top speed of the vehicle I'm currently driving would be awesome.

Example: I use a moped for my commute which is able to go at 60kph. However, very often Waze suggests me a route that includes a major highway with a 100kph speed limit, which is 3km longer than the route through the city with next to no traffic jams.

Therefore an option for slower vehicles would be a great addition to Waze.

I would be very happy to see bicycle and pedestrian added to the vehicle types even if they don't add any bike or walking trails. I find Waze incredible useful even when I am not in the car, and I continue to report accidents and the like when I do, but I know that the speed data I am creating is not helpful to motorists and I wish I could stop providing such misinformation.

Service vehicle. I drive a garbage truck that makes many stops. This makes the road glow because of a falsely slow speed.

I'm a truck driver in The Netherlands and would love to have truck vehicle category and options, like size, weight and wheels option in Waze.

I love that more cars are now available, but how about a minivan/van? I know I'm not the only Mom's Taxi Service out there using Waze! (I chose "taxi" for just that reason, but I actually drive a black minivan--nothing like the only black vehicle available, the Smart!)

Eticketlizabeth, this whole discussion is not about which car icons should be available to be displayed on top of the map (as is your taxi). It's about which vehicle categories should be supported (length, speed, weight, no. of passengers, etc.) and what routes they should get suggested according to the restriction shields along the real roads.

Sent from a touch display, which took care of perfectly scrambling my thoughts.
