But if you route from Ann Arbor to Niagra Falls, ON, waze routes you through Buffalo. You have to cross the border whether from Michigan or New York. Why would waze route you south of Lake Erie?

It honestly didn't take more than 20 minutes from the moment we hit stopped traffic waiting to get through. Waze didn't have any traffic delay reports unless it considers the border a permenant delay :P

Come to think of it, isn't it strange that Waze didn't prompt me to submit a traffic report when I was at a standstill?

Not if the historic average around the border checkpoints is close to 0.

At what point did you cross? The Peace Bridge between Buffalo and Fort Erie was always a pretty quick route for me.

I remember crossing at least two bridges either on or almost directly after the point at which I crossed into the US... I'm pretty sure it was north of Niagara, on 405.

Which is in Niagara-on-the-Lake, and usually the busiest crossing... Because everyone's GPS seems to send them down there.
