I'm not sure what you could be experiencing. There were a few errors as far as the one way divided highway being declared as a two-way in 2 spots and an addition road over another road but nothing like what you're describing. See if the errors that I fixed will address your issue, otherwise we could try deleting that portion of the highway and then recreating it. I did not see any broken links and doubt what I changed will fix your issue, but I'd rather verify again than delete the highway and its associated data.

Have you traveled that way in the past few weeks? If so, was the issue resolved? Just want to know so that I can address the UR currently sitting in the editor. Hate to leave issues unfixed :p

I was poking my head around different areas of the forum today and came across this thread that pertained to your issueumbrau44.
viewtopic.php?f=4&t=34220
Since the issue pertains to the Andriod app itself and not the map, I'm going to make all the URs that you submitted as fixed, even though the problem will persist for the time being.

Noticed a problem on the weekend, Waze told me to do an illegal u-turn. I can't fix it myself.

East bound Bishop Granding at Shorehill, u-turn not allowed.

Same thing at Island Shore

James,

I'm curious as to why you don't have the Bus only routes connecting to other roads with proper turn restrictions since they are marked as private?

From what I've been reading, that's the recommended way, and it would reduce the amount of reported errors, while still not allowing WAZE to route commuters down those roads. Or can WAZE still route to a private road?

For the downtown bus route, the intersections have no turns allowed at all, why not allow the bus route to go straight through, but keep the intersecting roads from turning on to it?

You got it. Due to the significant time savings from the rapid transit line, Waze would likely route you down there when it made sense, despite it being marked as a private road. That is why I disconnected it, so I that I could remove any chance of Waze attempting to route someone down there. As far as those error message go, I quit hitting resolved. I even placed something on there telling people not to use Waze on the bus, but people still continue to do so...

For the downtown bus route, the intersections have no turns allowed at all, why not allow the bus route to go straight through, but keep the intersecting roads from turning on to it?

Take another look at it, from what I'm looking at, that's exactly how it is setup. Cars aren't supposed to travel down parts of Graham. In order to increase the penalty associated with the route, I changed the segments to private AND disabled all turns arrows applicable exclusively to the buses. The arrows are still enabled, although traffic to travel north and south bound streets that travel through Graham.

I see, I was thinking private wouldn't be allowed at all.

As for Graham, I didn't mean the intersecting streets, I meant allow Graham to go straight through the intersections. For ex, Graham at Hargrave, allow Graham to continue to the next portion of Graham but not turn onto Hargrave. The turn restrictions are right for Hargrave and Donald etc. That would at least cut down on the turn restriction errors generated by Waze for that area at least.

Hey James -- can I suggest you consult the Champs on this?

I remember reading from one of them recently that there is a HUGE penalty for *exiting* a private road -- so much that Waze won't use it in routing unless it is absolutely necessary in order to make it to the destination...
