If it is true that 'roads disappear by types' above certain speeds, should we add this fact to http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Map_Legend for clarity?

In other words,

"Street.
* Any road that traffic will be routed onto.
* At grade connectors & turn lanes when separated by enough distance from the streets that one is needed for proper GPS tracking.
* A road with a speed limit of 40mph or higher should not be a street. It should be a highway, primary street, or another higher class road."

I know that we rarely set hard and fast rules like that, but in this case, is this not a sure thing?

Even better, since Waze does keep track of average speeds on roads, could 'street with excessively high speed' be an automatic system error that can be put into WME as a system update request? We use other specifications for other roads, (like HOV lanes as parking lot roads), but is street ever used in a case like that?

Yes, it does that. If you navigate to a destination, you'll see the route at least.

If you can do 50mph on a road it probably shouldn't be a normal street anyway.
OP, can you give a permalink or address for this road?

Should those BE streets though? My guess is probably not.

Fair enough. It's like that here anyways :-)

You decided to quote an entire post with pics with an answer we already gave. Great work... Lol
