City name on Railroad
What is the problem? City name on the Railroad may cause a city smudge.

Can that be turned off in the US, too? :D

Railroads should not have a city name applied anywhere. There's other discussion threads about this. Unless they are local light-rail stuff.

I don't think I agree with this either. Though maybe I misunderstand what you are saying. Soft turns should be reported on all segments, including dead-end u-turns.

Does a NOTE flash the road to call attention to it? 'Cause that's what I'm looking for when I'm panning around the map. :-)

It will flash blue because it would be a Note and not yellow. I'd prefer to keep it all the way it was before for the US.

Going the wrong way on a 1-way is just another penalty to the Waze routing model. It happens much less often now, but it can happen.

SuperDave1426 wrote:Or really? Wow, that's bizarre. Even with that, you'd think that there'd be less of a penalty for going down the permitted way, and thus that would be the way it would route you.

Sorry, off-topic, but to finish this up I think, for example: When toll road avoidance was first activated. There are many interstate bridges mapped properly as two 1-way segments, with there being a toll applied to only one direction of the bridge. Waze would route drivers backwards along the non-tolled segments. :roll:

WME beta had the 2-way change built-in and the roundabout issue has also been noted in the beta feedback.

There was a US discussion in the last couple of months about whether there are proper places to not have first letter upper case on real streets. I don't remember the thread or the outcome at this time, but this needs examination. Ramps starting with "to" should definitely be an exception for this check, at least in the US.

My experience has been that you can't change the case of a city name. You can try, but when the map refreshes, it returns to the original case.

There's a form for that. :)

Emmons Circle needs to be split into two segments. No two segments should have the same end points. It causes all sorts of routing problems, and misidentification of the actual route requested on URs, etc. It also causes issues with inability to locate the correct location when starting on that type of road.

This has been well documented in a few different forum discussions, which the Validator author provided links to earlier in this thread.
