Not sure if this qualifies as a BDP failure or not but I'm posting it anyways. The second UR was a minute after the first and only 1200 feet further down the road. Looks like bad traffic is to blame.

follow up UR, I assume from the same driver

First I learned how to draw lines on a map. Now I must learn the art of Feng-ShWaze.

Here's another one that exits the freeway to ramp road type, then mH, then ramps again, just to get back onto freeway.

The reporter gave me a screenshot which pretty much confirms the route.

I just wanted to follow up that we are still having these exit/frontage road/re-enter issues in the greater Houston area. Do we have anything new to report to our UR's? Thank you.

Those are the three I'm tracking right now. There are others that my fellow editors in Texas may be able to produce.

Nagamasa wrote:juliansean, the latter two of your examples are also at the city limit. The first one is hard to figure out which segments were failing because the report is pretty far from the freeway by then.

But it means that almost all the cases in this thread are at the city limit, where the freeway changes cities.


That might be possible for some, but not for others... https://www.waze.com/en-US/editor/?env= ... st=7447759

We have received a response from Staff. There are some issues that are still under review. But a large number of the issues were valid route, toll avoidance, or failure to follow BDP (https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/USA/De ... Mechanisms) rules.

Even though most agree it shouldn't happen, looks like the city name changes from "no city" to "Bellevue." That seems to be the common thread among most of these off/on routings.

At this point, I think we've reached a sufficient amount of data points at city changes to say that there is something going on.


That may be, but a bunch of R4 editors can't take it the Dev's. So, we'll keep bringing the issues up here until we hear they can verify the problem, or give us a fix.

I have a strange one here in Colorado with no reason whatsoever. No city name changes, no SL changes, nothing. Very strange.

I checked the Washington issue from Dude463 and all the criteria that I can see should have triggered BDP unless something at some time was wrong on the freeway when the original route was plotted. Then for some reason, any of the recalculations didn't account for the freeway getting cleared. But apparently staying on the freeway (not taking the exit route) recalculated and was 6 minutes faster.

If this is a rare occurance (not happened before here to this driver who travels this route a lot) I would assume it is from a heavy backup that was on the freeway before he arrived and the recalc did not reconsider BDP for this route.
