what error did you want to report?

Reporter February 17, 2015
No right hand turn

nnote(6) February 18, 2015
where can you not make a right?

Reporter February 18, 2015
Ellsworth onto ellsworth loop

Reporter February 18, 2015
You cannot make a right turn from ellsworth onto ellsworth loop

nnote(6) February 18, 2015
what prevents it? You cant turn on red, but on green you can make a right. Has something changed there?

You can turn right there but not on red.

New feature request... have Waze only say "Turn Right" when the light is green.... :roll:

Here's a fun one guys. A driver (editor?) has gone around a few blocks of baltimore marking every apartment building:

ps. don't close any of these yet, I want to work through them with my local editors and see if there is any valuable info.

I've had CSX trains block the "Major Highway" in front of my office for 15 minutes or more, so I could see the value in some kind of solution, be it automatic or user reported.

Sometimes I wonder if people's mental capacity is such that they think GPS apps are designed and maintained by State or Federal Transportation Departments.

We have had a number of people on the forum indicate that they believe that cities use Waze to find out about potholes and asking for hazard alerts to stay on the map longer.
With the Connected Citizens program, this might come closer to being true in some major cities: http://youtu.be/AMqbh3rqZRs

I figure this thread is the right place to ask: How do folks deal with hostile reporters?

For example:
Your stupid fucking app just steered me directly into a horrific traffic jam. Thanks a fucking heap for doing exactly the opposite of what you were supposed to do!!!

UPDATE: I went with a modified version of DwarfLord's canned response for bad traffic data. But I still wonder what others would have done.
