I'd like to suggest adding a section for common errors that are NOT map related, but get reported as such.
- Wrong GPS coordinates for an address
- Waze wanting you to turn right then make a U, instead of turning left
- Toll roads
- U-turns on non-split roads
- Gas station information being wrong

Seems these questions come up quite a bit in the forums, especially the address/GPS coordinates problem. And instead of typing a lengthily answer explaining how the different service providers (Bing, Google, YP) are the one providing Waze with the GPS coordinates, not street addresses, and how Waze uses that for routing and who to contact to fix the problems, we can just reply by linking to the Wiki entry.

Some of these are in the Wiki in different places, some aren't (or at least I can't find them), but it would be nice if they were all in one place.

Until they add support in the client for toll road avoidance into the client, its not a map problem. Right now, whether the road is flagged as a toll road or not, the routing treats toll roads just like any other.

I get plenty of UR's every week near the toll roads complaining that they're toll roads. They're flagged as such, but the fact Waze it routing on to them is not something that can be correct in the map.

(Unless something has just recently changed?)

Ah ok, well my point still stands on the NA server and most of the rest of the world. ;)

And what percentage of NA users have manually edited editing their config file? I'm guessing <1%.

http://www.waze.com/wiki/index.php/Time ... ng_process (linked off of this page):

This particular page needs updates on the section involving URs (all go to WME now), radius of editable roads, and probably a lot of the mentions of Cartouche can be removed at this point for simplicity.

I wasn't able to find exactly how to correct two way streets with unrestricted turns by correcting and restricted (non time) based turns. For example, how to add restricted turns to the properties of the street? Can detail instructions be provided in the WiKi page?
