It would at least help editors if we could distinguish reports from truck drivers. I've often seen no turn reports where there is a width or weight limit but no restrictions on cars.

An editor/diagnostic nightmare!

A "truck mode" been requested several times... I've pushed to have any potential future "no trucks" tag in the hands of higher level editors (AMs with over 100K edits and CMs) because I can see a serious potential for abuse - Wazers just marking "no trucks" on their residential street because they don't like it when a truck drives by, or not correctly interpreting the signs (i.e. "No Thru Trucks" does not equal "No Trucks"). I've also pushed for input from those with Class A & B (Commercial) Drivers Licenses in creating the rules.

Full disclosure, I have a Connecticut Class B CDL.

Probably would help to get some trucker input, but asking the majority of folks who only commute to help those who drive for a living sounds like the blind leading the sighted.


I am a Trucker.
Het Waze? Well for all the same reasons others use Waze...

Oh and truck nav sets out apps are way too expensive and still have tons of wrong routes
