So why am I not seeing any covered events? Certainly you must have done one other than the Tour de France.

How do I know if the event I submitted was picked up?


Bumping my own post in hopes of a reply.


Amit has told me only about 6 or so events on their website will be covered there, all other events submitted through the form will be handled through client side.

"...we use the events.waze.com to only 5-6 major events which will create major traffic events."

So submit events, it will still benefit client users.

No, there is another system for these reoccurring closures that is currently being beta tested. If you can get the info to a local editor with access to the beta version of WME they can add these restrictions and they will go live to the routing servers on the next tile build.

(There's a big chance that most users are not able to get there on time to report the road closed).
The system mentioned above does not support holidays at this time.

This is awesome!, I just have a few questions:

1. Is there a possibility to close a road automatically according to a specific characteristic of the city "behaviour"?. Example: Here in Bogotá Colombia we always close on sundays some specific main roads in order to let the people use them (By bike, walking, running, skating and so on) from 7am to 2pm.
2. When there's a monday holiday in Colombia, there's a special operation for the people that return to the city and some roads are close until 6pm.Is there a way to specify that behaviour even if a user is not able to be there to report the closure ? (There's a big chance that most users are not able to get there on time to report the road closed).

Thanks in advance. :D

I should have tried a virtual route (on Live Map) over this past weekend to see if Waze would have routed me around the section of I-95 I flagged / submitted to be closed.

Several of us have asked use to have them change that & allow date/time entry for each closure.

I'll take a look at what you've submitted & PM orit_y (Waze staffer who made the original post) to make sure they do it correctly. They may email your directly about this to verify things...

These closures are not limited to tile updates, and does support things like 8pm on Friday through 5am on Monday. Please make it clear that it is a continious closure when you are submitting it (so they do one continuous closures instead of a repeating closure that would close the road from 8pm to 5am the next morning for Friday night, Saturday night & Sunday night).
