Baloney. The Waze screen never shows any ID data. It doesn't show your username, it doesn't show the mood you have currently selected. What other data are you afraid of sending to a random editor to enable them to fix the problem you are reporting? Your signal strength, maybe a carrier logo? Waze takes over the entire screen except for the notification bar at the top and I've not seen any ID data up there either.

There are many ways that Waze could work around this false Privacy issue if they really wanted to. Number one of which would be a simple agreement page at install that notifies them that map problem reports will include anonymized contact data based on the email address they had to give, to enable map editors to work with them to fix map issues. Or by using ID'less contact forms to allow an editor to submit a comment to the reporting user asking for feedback, and that feedback similarly going through an ID'less contact form. Screenshots could be limited to the actual Waze screen real-estate.

The fact is editing could be so much better if Waze would give us back a method of obtaining better information than what is commonly included in UR's.

Yes some paranoid folks may choose to not use waze if such information were communicated, but most would not. Most people appreciate the exchange of information. We live in the age of social media, you can try and hide from it or you can embrace it, and most people choose to embrace it, understanding they are trading some information about their daily activities for free services.

Solved: by easing your foot off the accelerator enough, you won't be going too quickly.

It looks to me like a bad speech to text conversion

Change the 'D' to a 'B' break the 'EES' into 'E' and 'S', change both the in's to 'N' and you have "br e s n aha n" which is the spelling of the road.

It looks already correctly spelled I wonder if the driver is complaining about the pronunciation, which of course we have no control over.

What txemt said, plus the invitation in every email to come into the editor and take a look at the fix or lack thereof.

alley is one way. direction is east


Which seems fine on the surface, until you realize the alley in question run almost perfectly North-South.

You're reading the map wrong, it's a really short but very very very very wide street.

Update Request: Wrong driving direction
Took me to a dead end road. Not destination

And yes, he made the UR at a dead end but there is no indication of where he wanted to really go, so how am I supposed to know?

Mind reading, crystal ball, maybe I close my eyes and pick a place on the map?

I don't think this is actually a Jolly Driver. Last night I cleared several map problems where the system was complaining that drivers weren't following the suggested routes. The problem is every one of the five such MP's I closed were indicating that Waze had been telling drivers to leave a state hwy (minor hwy type) and turn onto a dead end street. Before closing I skimmed up and down the Hwy in question looking for a bad turn restriction, disconnect or something else that could cause the routing engine to seek an alternate route. But I couldn't find anything.

So this driver may have actually been routed down a dead end road, and the made the report when they realized it was a dead end. My opinion that report is legit, and indicates a minor problem the routing engine might be having.
