I just recently had a UR that contained social commentary on the neighborhoods he had just driven thru. It wasn't derogatory or anything, but I can only hope it was the passenger writing the commentary and not the driver. :D

I actually have resisted the urge to respond like that - tho it took a LOT of willpower. But actually I realized that "missing overpass" is just above "wrong driving directions". Still pretty hard to reconcile with being on a ferry tho - for any kind of report :D

Guess we have to use the term "drivers" more loosely:
Reporter wrote:Problem: I'm walking


I'll say that's a problem - and feature request all in one ;)

Which turn is not allowed?

Reporter on June 12, 2014
You must watch the one way signs. Most map apps don't know about them.

Hmm. Should I reply that the aerial imagery doesn't show them? ;)
And of course there is no streetview either :D

What you you mean 'turn not allowed' on 290 W?

Reporter on June 24, 2014
No U turn ..

sockslabs(3) on June 24, 2014
I don't understand. You're on 290W, a 3-lane interstate highway. Taking a U-turn is going to kill somebody. What do you mean?


He hasn't responded back -- I fear something terrible may have happened. ;)


I'm not convinced that waze correctly connects a response to a previously reported UR. I realize it is extremely hard - especially as volunteer editors - to verify this, but I have seen "proper" responses completely out of context for where the UR response is attached. I'm guessing if a user has submitted multiple URs, that the responses are not always attached to the correct one - or at least the one that user THINKS they are responding to. Again, I'm not suggesting that there isn't user-error, but with the number of responses I've seen that refer to URs (or situations) that are nowhere near where the UR/Response is being shown, that the blame is ALL on the users either.
In situations like this - it would be really convenient if we could see whether the OR has any other open reports. Having waze provide this doesn't require that we see the OR's id - just that they have multiple reports open. Hmmmm, sounds like an enhancement request. :D
