Why is a toll road not a map problem?

I'd like to suggest adding a section for common errors that are NOT map related, but get reported as such.
- Wrong GPS coordinates for an address
- Waze wanting you to turn right then make a U, instead of turning left
- Toll roads
- U-turns on non-split roads
- Gas station information being wrong

Seems these questions come up quite a bit in the forums, especially the address/GPS coordinates problem. And instead of typing a lengthily answer explaining how the different service providers (Bing, Google, YP) are the one providing Waze with the GPS coordinates, not street addresses, and how Waze uses that for routing and who to contact to fix the problems, we can just reply by linking to the Wiki entry.

Some of these are in the Wiki in different places, some aren't (or at least I can't find them), but it would be nice if they were all in one place.

The Wiki is shaping up nicely! I am sure in the near future is going to be fantastic.

http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Time ... ng_process (linked off of this page):

This particular page needs updates on the section involving URs (all go to WME now), radius of editable roads, and probably a lot of the mentions of Cartouche can be removed at this point for simplicity.

I suspect you haven't actually read the Editing Manual yet. http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Map_ ... ing_a_road

You have to have permissions on the segment you're trying to delete and also the adjacent connected segments. If it's a permissions issue, please post an unlock request.

The stairway is an undrivable segment, but if it's connected to a real road, it can be routed. Common practice is to disconnect that sort of thing from the real roads, but the correct thing to do is get rid of it completely, as it serves no purpose being on the map.


That did the trick (not the delete key on my MacBook Pro, but the select-and-click-trash-can).

Seems like one could add that content above to the Wiki?

I don't see anywhere in the guide (or video) about how to delete a road segment.

Waze keeps telling me, when I get close to my house, to drive onto a street that simply is not there. Sure, if you go over two blocks in the grid, the street is there, but for those two blocks, there is no street.

Someone has already designated one of those blocks as "stairway", but that didn't prevent Waze from thinking I could drive it. The other block is shown as a two way street. It simply does not exist.

I tried deleting it by selecting it and pressing delete on my keyboard: nothing. I tried grabbing one end and dragging it to the other (so there would be no segment), but no luck.

Hm!

When working on this, maybe refer to what Krankyd refers to as the azimuth as the lens direction to make it easier to understand :) 'Point the lens of the camera photo towards the direction of traffic that is being photographed.'
