Fuuny. Too bad they are such bad editors!

This belongs in Jolly Editors though. :P

This is rich!

I looked at an MP for "Driving direction mismatch (automatically detected)" and found a drive down a short one-way segment the wrong way. As I usually do I pulled up StreetView to see if the segment was marked correctly. What I saw is collected and attached!

Along with stop signs if you're driving an expensive car.

Maybe we should say that All Signage is ADVISORY ... unless you're caught!

As soon as I saw it in SV, even without the wrong-way car, I figured it was common. It just begs people to make that short hop down to the other area.

A friend, who isn't using Waze, refers to her GPS persona as "That Bitch in the Box!"

I finally have a UR that justifies my posting:

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 there are as many "bogus" URs as you would think. There are a couple of issues that make many URs appear bogus but the primary problem is:

The reporter assumes there is more information provided to the responder than is actually provided.

If we knew "where they were going" a large number of the unsolvable URs become solvable. If there was ALWAYS a track and a route provided, a few more go away. Since neither of these is going to happen, we will always have unsolvable issues.

I think the coming changes to the Waze editor may help, since being able to ASK the person what they were thinking will go a long way to solving issues.

Located here at Tranquility Ln
