A year or more ago, in the early days of WME (Papyrus?) UR functionality, we had a very curious UR show up at LAX airport detailing a problem, including a drive and route trace, somewhere in Pennsylvania.

Knowing that cunning alias you use for a last name, they may actually believe that it's a legitimate family name.

Years back, I convinced the social security administration that my first name is "R" and that is reflected on my social security card.

Sincerely,

Waze attempts to route you around traffic and to give you what it believes to be the fastest route, not the shortest (unless you set it that way, but default is fastest.) Waze does the best it can with the traffic data it's given, but sometimes it will route you a weird path instead of the simplest because it believes there's traffic to avoid and that the suggested route would be faster. Simply continue to drive using Waze (you can ignore the suggested route or take it, that's up to you, Waze is happy to quickly recalculate if you drive off its suggested path) and either way it will continue to get data to use to make smarter decisions in the future. I'm sorry that the route given was incorrect this time, but the map appears to have the correct structure in this area. If you have any additional map errors to report, please open an additional report!


I use a very similar response to this type of UR.

Jay91150 wrote:That's probably related to this World Cup nonsense going on right now. The map has become littered with soccer/footballs, and for some reason the majority of them are being delivered to side streets rather than the route you're on. They appear to be floating in no-man's-land because side streets aren't drawn when you're moving at a good clip on your main route.


Yes it is the soccer balls and yes they sometimes do appear off the street. I saw one in the middle of a block. I got it just by driving down an adjacent street though. You seem to be able to grab them just by getting close.

I suspect that Waze is purposely putting them off the beaten path to encourage Wazers to go after them so that they will provide speed data on the seldom traveled streets. It wouldn't be the first time they did that.

SHELL and TEXACO are all caps on their signs but Chevron is mixed case. I convert everything to mixed case in the editor so as not to be obnoxious. However, I haven't figures out a way to make the double x in Exxon in the editor.
