Around here that would mean the average traffic was normally around 55 to 60. Traffic actually going the speed limit would be viewed by locals as a slow down.


And on top of that, I've noticed that the speed limits in SoCal are 5-15 MPH higher than they would be for equivalent type and condition roads in NorCal!

The search for the street was obviously done via external search engines (as are most searches on Waze). This can cause confusion for people when the name Waze has for the street is different than or doesn't exist in the other search engines, they can't get Waze to route to a street by name that they can clearly see on the map.

A nearby cul-de-sac keeps filling up with URs complaining that directions to Wegmans took them there.

After selecting "not identified" for the 1000th time, I created a "Not Wegmans!" landmark:

"Bing's search engine returns this as the location of Wegman's supermarket. The people who live on this small residential cul-de-sac could probably make a decent living if they set up a fruit stand.
Please do not generate UR for the lack of a Wegman's at this location. The problem lies with Bing, and there's nothing that can be done in the Waze Map Editor. Thank you!

(Issue reported to BING. In the meantime the residents are making a killing on Lemonade sales.)"

No, in the description. It didn't do much, other than make me feel better. :D

See? Yet another benefit if only we had two-way UR's: we could identify and incarcerate him!
