Thanks.

Any input on what we should call it at this point?

Highway Off/On Detour Prevention Mechanism?

You can "move" the page. Tab at the top.

Why the "small" here? To try and differentiate it from "large" detours which are as yet undefined in terms of Waze? I think I'm ok with it, but want a small explanation here. (pun intended)


Very prescient. Waze seems to have now taken to calling this Big Detour Prevention and calling the right/U routing issues small detours.

So how can the title of this section be changed to avoid future confusion.

Yes, I think we should. At this point I believe that reliance on the detour prevention mechanism is preferable to using the collector/distributor configurations currently listed in that section of the wiki.

I also think that we now need to state somewhere that when editing interchanges care should be taken to avoid changes in the highway/freeway name and city name through the interchange to preserve the effectiveness of the detour prevention mechanism. The question becomes whether freeway segments should have city names at all, but I don't believe there is a consensus on this issue.

The Europeans seem to be finding significant instances where the detour prevention mechanism does not work as expected. I have been holding off making more significant changes based on some hope that we will get more information from waze regarding exactly how the mechanism works.

Should we consider linking this to the Limited Access Interchange article as well covering how to deal with the issue when the listed items are not present?

7 days ago. :mrgreen:

Looks good. I changed the last paragraph to a small table for what I feel is faster reference/scanning. Also broke out major highway from freeway just in case it changes later. Minor Freeway may also have a different definition, though 5km is likely.

I'm fine with it. If you put this together soon, I'll throw a tweet out about it this week.

Yeah, but maybe there will be some day, so to give this a better name, perhaps 'small' is ok. I'm having trouble figuring out what else we could call it...
