I've sent a request in this site (https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1R0XIsG ... o/viewform) and today waze sent me an e-mail that accept the event. Now I don't know what is the next step to do correctly this event.

Please help, and sorry for my english..

Waze usually share a document with you to fill in. In that, you can put in permalinks, closure times (dates, hours etc.) Did you get that one yet? If not this form should work just as fine. Just follow each page and continue to add all the segments that are closed.

The World's Mega Traffic Events
Drivers Survival Kit

The Waze Community is working together to fight chaotic traffic events worldwide by

- Providing known closures and real-time data for unexpected hazards
- Helping drivers bypass heavy traffic during mega events in their area

How it Works
- Champs source events and closure locations
- Dedicated Event Survival Kit website is created for expected closures and real-time traffic updates
- Waze app automatically re-routes users around all closures during the event
- Relevant users alerted via inbox about event road closures and live updates from the field

Letting Wazers Know

It does work indeed.
But it's not really easy to use.

If you close the freeway before a junction the freeway still isn't closed.

Recently I have seen a few and I think the amount of people needed to close a street is lowered a lot!

Not sure. Was a very small road at the other side of the country.. ;-)

But I guess so. The street was red/white.

I didn't test it, but indeed. Only 20% of the roads had a red and white dashed line.

You should close the connecting roads as well.
The event only closes the segments, not the nodes.
