Summary — Time Restricted Turns and Throughways

Totally agree. Waze says time- based turn restrictions and reversing roadways are interrelated and will likely be new features at the same time.

What do you mean by socializing? It's well known, posted about in the forum, been entered in the FAQ for quite some time, and @WazeMapping mentions that from time to time as well. What else are you suggesting? I'm not sure how you create something more proactive to alert drivers in the app. Drivers bitch enough already about too many pop-ups.

I know this is well discussed, but can I get some of the boiled-down thoughts/decisions on this topic?

You can almost see the wazer throwing their phone out the window :roll:

Please share your best practices for managing time-restricted turns and throughways, and socializing the current lack of support for this scenario.

Right, they are certainly interrelated, as you can provide the necessary information about reversing roads through time restricted turns. However, it seems so much easier to deal with reversing roads specifically than time restricted turns in general. Just force the average speeds to zero in the direction which is closed for the appropriate time. I wish we didn't have to wait for full blown time restricted turns to be implemented to have the Rock Creek Pkwy route correctly.

That's good to know. I spoke with several co-workers and many could care less about map editing. Rather, they simply like using Waze to get from point A to point B.

Still, since we're wishing, I'd like to add a comment to the UR.
"Hey, can you tell me where Newark Avenue is closed"?

There has been recent discussion, perhaps in the wiki documentation forum, about changing the recommendation to always restrict.

The problem is this is the infamous reversing Rock Creek Pkwy. We are not just talking about a left turn restriction, where the wazer can be routed a through a turn a few lights down or right around the block as the wazer would need to do during rush hour. If we always restrict here (and consistently restrict all the other entrances to the pkwy), we would be effectively taking the pkwy (a significant commuter route) off the map.

Solved. Then it is up to them to contact you because in the email they get, they have your Wazer name/forum name.

The "Not Identified" email also gives them your Wazer name/forum name.

I read through that last night. I suppose, once one gets through the gray area, we could chose that option. Thus upsetting the daily drivers but accommodating the new/out-of-town commuter.
It makes sense to try and keep the non-familiar driver from last minute, potentially dangerous decisions.

Now, I'm back to how do I keep the daily commuters from uninstalling? I know; sorry. Thanks for letting me arrive, where you've been for awhile. :)


Next question...
How to keep from researching the "UR" OR the "auto-detect" over and over and over again? :cry:

I always allow the turn/route as it's allowed during greatest portion of the day.

One could argue that these restrictions occur during the mayhem of rush hour. Our job is to move them safely and quickly, and it's likely that the lion's share of these drivers know what they're up against during this period.
