This is not a regular map report but from a local news:

NJ Transit probes 2-hour late 'bus ride from hell'

NEW JERSEY -- New Jersey Transit is investigating why one of its bus drivers took a different route Thursday, making passengers nearly two hours late into New York City.

This is what happens if you don't use Waze.

I also tend to hit those immediately when I see them, as they are representative of a real problem (missing road, wrong driving direction, etc).


Most likely for points perhaps?

I see this a lot when people are determined to take a route that they think is faster, and Waze is trying to get them to go a different way. Any dead-end on the route with a U-turn enabled will cause this type of routing...at least until they get to a point where their route is actually faster.

That's about 40% of those errors. Another 40% is the directed u-turn between the lanes of a divided highway and the remaining 20% are routes "around the block" to accomplish a u-turn. It seems that users don't want to make u-turns.


Around the block at least makes sense to the users and they see that it wants them to go back the way they came. But the dead end routing tells you to turn onto the dead end, then tells you nothing about making a u-turn at the end and the next instruction is to turn back onto the road you started on.

Whenever I see one of these, I go on a end-node-u-turn killing frenzy in the surrounding area.


It would be nice if Waze did this automatically.

To be honest I think it's a good suggestion.
There should be global weather warnings per regio.
Rain, Snow, Fog, Wind, low sun.


Perhaps, but in the mean time s/he can still report hazard and put in the description " Sun Glare" or other hazards that might not be in the list.
S/he certainly had time to report as a map issue, I would think s/he had time to report as "hazard w/description" too.
