Re: traffic circles

I do not consider traffic circles (e.g., Washington Circle to be roundabouts. They are circular roads controlled by traffic lights. In a real roundabout, traffic does not stop and roads do not cross. However, I do somewhat see how instructions to enter and exit the circle could be useful.

Re: too sharp angle turn

I think that your proposed rule could be applied based on the lowest class of the roads forming the angle. Streets, dirt roads, and parking lot roads may have such sharp turn angles. Freeways never do.
Ramps junctions probably are where this type of error occurs most.

I consider going straight to be an angle (course deflection) of 0.
Turning left or right in a perpendicular intersection is an angle of 90°.
You are talking about a turn greater than 150°.

After you have checked a turn that is greater than 150° and see that it is fine, then what?
U-turns in bowtie intersections sometimes are very tight because of the need to have a nearly parallel interception angle to get the correct turn instructions.

Re: title case is correct

j4m35ch3w wrote:is there any chance you can allow street names (in the US) that start with "de", "de la", "del", "el" and "la" to not trigger the #170 rule? There are a number of streets in San Diego that start with those and they are 'correct'.

As mentioned, we already hashed out this issue regarding #170 and there is a thread on the topic of capitalization. I invite you to contribute to that discussion.

I checked two of your examples from the street view. Clearly, Title case is used. Not only are the words you mentioned capitalized at the beginning of the name, they are capitalized in the middle of a name. I believe that the names you cited should be fixed in Waze to conform to the official spelling.

Conclusion: A street name starting with a lowercase letter is not something that should pass validation.

Yep, at least I believe so. When I scan an area that has both urban/suburban roads and large lakes/swamps, I get lots of really quick beeps and a number of well-spaced ones, with some in between (probably along the edges between built areas and swamps/lakes).

1) One beep per "screen", with a higher-pitched beep at the end.
2) Gear, wrench, uncheck "Enable sounds".

2) Thanks, never noticed the Gear. :oops:

An alternative to ${type} is ${typeRank}, which uses the following codes:

${typeRank}
15 freeway
14 major highway
13 minor highway
12 ramp
11 primary street
10 street
9 service road
8 dirt road
7 parking lot road
6 private road
5 walking trail
4 pedestrian bdwk
3 stairway
2 railroad
1 runway

Kinda makes it easier if you wanna do, say, all public drivable roads (1[0-5]). Also a little easier to remember.

Re: street names take up space in the database?

Whether the name takes up space in the database is a matter of how the database is designed. It doesn't affect routing. Regardless, it should not be the rationale driving this change.

No. Go right ahead. I just made up the list myself as I was replying. It is not canon or accurate.

kentsmith9 wrote:Maybe the problem is berestovskyy's message was for all countries and yours was only for the USA?

But if that is the case, in California we have plenty of Spanish roads, so if "la" and "de" are allowed in other countries, why not allow it in the US?


I cannot comment much on other countries.

In California, we have many road names derived from Spanish, but "La" and "El" are always capitalized; "Del" is capitalized when it is the first real word of the name.

Rules for other countries do not necessary apply to the US.
They are capitalized in Mexico, so why shouldn't they be capitalized in the USA?

Are you now satisfied that there is no discrepancy between my statements?
"La Cruz" gets capitalized for the same reason that "Las Cruces" is capitalized.

drbauglr, just to clarify, "your two statements" was between you and berestovskyy. They were in disagreement from what I read and summarized here.
berestovskyy's message said "la" is allowed.
dbraughlr's message said "la" is not allowed.

Maybe the problem is berestovskyy's message was for all countries and yours was only for the USA?

But if that is the case, in California we have plenty of Spanish roads, so if "la" and "de" are allowed in other countries, why not allow it in the US? Again if there was already a thread on this I could not find it but would be happy to review to better understand if this was already discussed.

Thanks for the list. Is this list agreed by the whole USA community? I am not questioning your accuracy, I just did not find the thread that discussed it. I wanted to link the Wiki page to the discussion thread to prevent future questions that may debate the list.
