Lucky you! In the cases that you saw, did it actually prevent routing?

Did you check that it was blocked for others too? Cause blocking yourself works perfect.

So it's working after al ;-)

Where is that? Just curious how it looks, I've never seen an event in the wild.

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.

When helping with the scheduled blocks for the Mexico City Marathon I had to provide groups of segment IDs and closure times for each group... I guess this could be used to set different times the correspond with the time in each side of the time line.

Staff informed us that TBTRs are not time zone aware, I believe.

My extrapolation is based not only on personal experience and conjecture but also on that statement from staff.

This is a screenshot of some of the data that I was asked for when preparing for the Mexico City Marathon so I still maintain that for events it would be easy to use as a way to manage different time zones.

From one local event I've personally tested a month ago - there were looooads of report pins, unfortunately just a few of the requested segments were red-white-dashed and too often it was perfectly possible to obtain a valid route along the segments-to-be-closed. I've written an extensive report with many screenshots to Waze, they thanked for it and that was it. I have a hope that now it is better tuned...

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.
