The World's Mega Traffic Events
Drivers Survival Kit

The Waze Community is working together to fight chaotic traffic events worldwide by

- Providing known closures and real-time data for unexpected hazards
- Helping drivers bypass heavy traffic during mega events in their area

- Waze app automatically re-routes users around all closures during the event
- Relevant users alerted via inbox about event road closures and live updates from the field

A doubt I have about is or is not a MTE:

What kind of construction can be a great event?

In WME in portuguese, "construction" category is translated to "Obras". But "Obras", in portuguese, can be used to construction of new roads or to describe manutenance in existing ones.

For example, a maintenance of a few hours in a Tunnel or in a bridge , where the transit will be blocked, should be a MTE?

Thanks

As far as I know the events with no "Created by" are included by the Staff.

All the information in this thread is from 2013-2014 and mostly outdated.

There are new features and resources now regarding events, it's no longer only managed through online forms and spreadsheets.

Waze staff would get any submissions in here and if they need to notify Champs about something I'm sure they would do it through the Staff CM of each community like it happened before.

Hey Guys, We have a BIG BIG problem!!
We not receive the email alert when a new event is added from this page https://goo.gl/ZTUL2N
So we never know when some event is inserted.
Please settled immediately otherwise the Awazeing Race can not do

The event only closes the segments, not the nodes.

BTW – unless it's been updated, the "how to input event closures" presentation says that cross-streets are closed automatically. But I believe that you are correct, Peter, that they are not, and that they need to be added.
