Was the router, the driver, the GPS chip, or all three digging too deep into the beer cooler on Memorial Day?

I should hope not!

Probably from the ferry. If they ever start carrying cars again, we'll have to map it. Probably not happening.

Hi, ScottZane,

I think this joker is just asking why he can't get a faster ETA, since he drives like a demon. What a jerk.

Not sure what you meant by wrong "forum"

Sorry out of my area, so I can't see the UR. Mind posting a screencap?

I think its better to reword the missing bridge/overpass map issue. If you look at what it stands for the wording could confuse drivers on how to use it. I think this should be something along the lines of "Incorrect/improper intersection". Or just merge it with the incorrect junction.


Well, it could be bad junction or missing road. But either way, I have never encountered one where it really made sense. The only thing I could imagine is if one roadway cuts above another, and as the driver passes the other highway, he notices that the map does not depict it at all.

The history here is that when waze imports a map it can't tell the difference between a nonjunctioning overpass and a crossroad intersection. Thus, waze initially has every overpass mapped as a crossroads and would give instructions to turn left of the bridge onto the road below. Every overpass that doesn't do this has been edited by an editor. Thus, in the early days "missing bridge overpass" was a heavily used and necessary report. Not so much anymore as the vast majority of overpasses are no longer crossroads on the waze map.


So in other words, a subset of "incorrect junction," which might be better phrased as "No intersection of these roads"

There is a forum post for canned UR responses. This should be moved there. Starting around page 12 I think, we started actually posting some of our goto responses, and some of us have actually created our own Wiki pages for them (see my signature).

Similarly, my response is based on the type of error, and by observing UR responses of other editors in my area. What I do is this:

For a General Error:

"Hello, and thank you for your report on Main Street in Townburg. Unfortunately, I can't tell exactly what happened. What was the nature of the problem you experienced?"

Usually, the response to that one is crickets.

For Wrong Driving Direction:

"Hello, and thank you for your report on Main Street in Townburg. Unfortunately, as volunteer map editors, we can only see a small portion of the route Waze recommended and a small portion of the route you drove. I see that Waze suggested you to continue on Main Street but you turned left on School Street instead. (or, it seems that you followed the route that Waze suggested.) What was your destination?"

The response to that, if I even get one, is usually something like "Townburg Elementary School, Townburg, USA" at which point I check Google Maps for the location of the school. Or, a response like "2345 Main Street, Townburg, USA" at which point I check house numbers AND the pin location in Google Maps.

I think it would help if we could respond with some sort of template. I find myself typing the same words over and over again in response to URs.

Hi, volunteer map editor here to solve your problem. What happened?

(I like to imagine that you saw a magician wave his wand and turn all of the boutiques and expensive department stores in Manhattan into a modern cut rate bazaar. But you probably just had a problem with autocorrect or voice input.)
