They seem to carry just enough of a penalty to prevent Waze from routing over the local segements unless it actually wants you to exit off them, but also won't route you away from those exits just because you need to traverse a whole bunch of "ramps" to get to it.

Of course, these local segments also don't have any driveways, be it residences or businesses. Personally, I think it would look a little silly for ramps to have addresses, and I'm not sure how that would even affect Waze's routing to those addresses.

Have we reached any kind of consensus on this?


That's not quite what we're talking about. https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... 2,46960608 is more of what we're talking about.

Good point, but have you seen the signs the city puts up that says "I-xx Service Road"? The exit sign may say "frontage", but the city decides to call it "service."

I've also see lots of UR's around local highways that aren't freeways, where the routing penalties may be a bit different. This stretch often backs up during rush hours, so Waze routes get fancy. Some of the problem is solved by turn restrictions and one way segments, where appropriate.
