Street direction at some hours

Postby zeoto56 » Mon May 21, 2012 5:07 pm

Is there an option to set the direction of the street when the hour change? In ex, from 9 to 12 the direction is N-S, and from 12-8 the direction is S-N.

thanks,

Also in DC, and I'm sure elsewhere, there are certain turns that are illegal during rush hours. Waze needs a way to account for these.

Toronto has a lot of those.

There seems to be quite the demand for this feature.

Well at least they seem to be working on something. That's good news.

Well I think they are going to tell you that they can't do it and that there is currently no interface or support for roads that change directionally based on time of day. But that shouldn't stop you from asking.

Have you asked Waze directly if there is anything that they can do?

Are you proposing that Waze just figure this out based on the data that they have without any way to control it in the editor?

* Getting the data correct in Waze
* The data changing with updated signs being posted
* Day of the week differences (eg. no left turn Monday - Friday 9am - 11am)
* Building the interface to allow data entry based on clicking an arrow in the editor, currently there is not extra data for a turn, only allowed or denied
* Adding the extra data to the database - it's my understanding that all database changes are 'frozen' until at least July 2012 for Waze to complete infrastructure changes.
* etc, etc.

They didn't tell me that they can't do it (they ignored my request that they might do it on the back end). Your prediction that they would tell me there is currently no interface or support for roads that change directionality based on time of day was correct. For what its worth, they said this feature will be available "soon" and that "it's still under testing."
