I also tend to hit those immediately when I see them, as they are representative of a real problem (missing road, wrong driving direction, etc).

These are all within a 3 day span and for a variety of problems. Most of them also have no drive data. Finally, this is a residential area which increases the possibility that this is a person scrolling the map around in Waze and reporting problems from their couch.

Unfortunately, there's nothing I can really do about this without doing something like putting a road on their house telling them they're being ineffective. I guess this person is going to receive a bunch of emails about how I wasn't able to resolve their problems.....

EDIT: So there was 31 of the things there.

Idle threats!

He's got it all wrong anyway! That's Charumb Ct, not Charlund Dr. Obviously he doesn't live where he thinks he does.


Not only that, but that road has only one connection, so it should only be used by waze for destinations on that road and turnarounds.

Problem: To get to North Carolina from short pump Virginia I should not take 64 east it should tell me to take 295 S. to 95 then to get on 64 east at Rocky Mount
Reported on: July 02


Not at all sure what this person was thinking. I-64 doesn't pass through NC. It certainly doesn't go through Rocky Mount (place in NC). Assuming you wanted to go to the beach by taking 64 east until you got to the Va Beach area and then grabbing a US or local road south to NC, why would you take 295 instead of just getting on 64 (assuming this wasn't rush hour)? Even if that were the case, the route they described still goes through the 2 worst interchanges in Richmond.

Edit: Ok, I looked closer at it and they were already going west on 64, and Waze was telling them to get off and turn around.... However, all of the above still applies.

And then there's people who don't like bowties:

Problem: East and West W Broad Street need their own street at the intersection instead of all roads connecting at 1 point.


I guess I could do a twisted cross instead, but I imagine they won't like it any better and it works the way it is.

DoNotUpdate wrote:Another useless General Error report...

I propose that we either
    A- Get rid if it.
    B- Make it a requirement to fill out the comment field.
    C- Being that many drivers report while in motion, Waze should automatically send an email to reporters after ALL map error reports requesting additional info.
    D- When a driver clicks on report map error there should be a pop-up box saying "I agree to be contacted by volunteer Map editors if more information is needed and to provide the best possible explanation regarding this report." The box should have a small check box saying "Do not show this message again".

If you guys agree I will formally request this in the WME feature update requests..(unless it has been brought up already). Thoughts?


I agree to all these points - we definitely need something to stop general errors being reported, then the reporter vanishes into the ether, never to be heard from again. Those that do reply are generally heavy users and get back within two days, most though after 2 days can't remember where they were when they submitted the report, and also can't remember why.

Seen on a UR in Kent:

xteejx(4) on July 10, 2014
Hi, what was the problem here on Victoria Park?

Reporter on July 11, 2014
I think it was a robbery

xteejx(4) on July 11, 2014
Ok, what has that got to do with a map issue on Waze exactly?

More of a Police matter me thinks - although what the reporter thought waze was capable of is anyone's guess

It's probably also the allure of receiving 18 points for every photo submission (of a destination). Most of the ones I've rejected are for home addresses where the picture is a random shot down a street, with "pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey" luck of which house do I want?
