Problem: Can't see anyone

It's probably not a good idea to be driving then...

This is one impressively long note that says absolutely nothing.

Problem: The map show where to find 109 La Fontenay Ct Louisville,Ky from New Cut Road louisville,Ky. The map show use Outer Loop then I-65 North Louisville then get I-264 east then get exit of Shelbyville Rd that is waste time. Best way is New Cut Rd to I-265 North and approx 25-30 mins to get exit of Shelbyville Rd then turn left then contiune straight on Shelbyville Rd till you see La Fontenay Ct on right. Use I-265 easy fast less traffics. Use I-264 to get Shelbyville Rd too much traffics

Waze regularly gives me a similar route when I'm going north on Gratiot and need to get to NB Groesbeck via Metro Pkwy. I even left a UR about it: https://www.waze.com/editor/?lon=-82.89 ... 33&env=usa

It's actually a minute faster, according to the livemap, than the "correct" route, doing the Michigan left to Metro Pkwy. I can understand, too, since it's also apparently a 0.6 mile savings.

Problem: stupid directions


Actually, since the direct left turn onto Inkster is enabled from Grand River while 8 Mile has a "Michigan Left", this is rather ingenious... Plus, we get a big "M" when viewed from above!

The more I see of these, the more I am convinced that the casual waze user enters a new UR to respond to a request for more information - not realizing that their response comes from where they are at the time of response rather than where the original UR was logged - and further not realizing that it comes up as a new UR. And since users experiencing an error want to make sure waze really, really gets it - I often see 2 and 3 URs for (apparently) the same error by (apparently) the same user, and then a 4th UR with a comment relating to the other 2/3 URs in the same area.

General error (user reported)
Problem: Texas line
Reported on: yesterday


I responded:
Ok. What would you like for us (volunteer map editors) to do about the 'map problem' "Texas line"? It is NOT a safe place to stop and kiss the ground. :)
