Isn't there some 20 or 40 pin limit to be displayed, similarly to the wazers' icons?

I have a 2 weeks old screenshot (up to date beta), where I believe seeing 32-34 wazer icons. Has this limit been recently raised from 20 (after a strong resistance)? If we could expect the same at least for zebras and color-coded jams? The pins can be partially worked out with grouping and flipping.

Someone sitting near a time zone line may be willing to try this out: two similar TBTRs valid since e.g. 10:00 at two sides of the line, a route through them at 8:30, 9:30, 10:30, 11:30 and note, which one is when taken.

I managed to close the N35 singlehandedly. It has a l5 travel lock.

Just wondering what time zone is used for starting/displaying the hazards for an event. The City to Surf run here in Perth, Western Australia was held today and is shown as an event on the events.waze.com website.

Thing is, it's the middle of the night here and the client app is showing all hazards related to the road closures for the event. I don't recall seeing them earlier today in the app.

We are still getting event pop ups, during morning peak drive time, for the City to Surf event which was held yesterday over 24 hours ago.

I absolutely LOVE this idea.

I know Waze Champs will be taking care of the updates, but maybe in the future you can open it up to Area Managers, but in a more limited fashion.

For instance, maybe the Area Managers/Country Managers can have a way to provide update suggestions to Champs.

Just a thought.

Are closures submitted through this Event Traffic Center limited to the Tiles Update schedule, or are they more time-specific, for example, 8 pm on a Friday through 5 am the following Monday?

I submitted one for I-95 in Delaware. On the first page of the submittal I made it clear the times the roads would be closed. The second page (with the permalinks of the affected roads) does not allow me to specify a date along with the time(s).
