The one benefit I thought of for the current situation is that the direction is spoken last, thus giving the driver time to notice that Waze is saying something and "tune in" or tell their passengers to "shhhh!" :D

I live in the South now, but I had previously lived in NJ where this was done all the time. Near where I lived it usually ended up being " turn right at the WaWa* then in 3 miles turn left at the next WaWa, then pass two more WaWas and turn right after the third WaWa" :D

Of course I was born in New York City and I used to think NJ was the south :lol:

*WaWa is a convenience store and gas station chain based out of PA that has TONS of locations in central Jersey**.

** Central Jersey is the DMZ between North Jersey and South Jersey. Yes they are different. No you wouldn't confuse them if you've been there.

A friend of mine who still lives in NJ has a 5 mile commute to work and they end up driving through 8 (eight!) towns in those 5 miles.

And people wonder why NJ has such high property taxes -- it is because of so much duplication of effort in running all these municipalities.
