If the form fields for "Date and Time" can't actually accept a time value, then please change the field naming. Times must be submitted separately.

I just got 4 Emails about events from orbitc...

One for "test event" - Jan 9 14:01 -> Jan 10 14:02
Three for "Another Test" - Jan 11 1:00 -> Jan 11 1:01

That's why I was asking... I would expect one for each...

There was a thread (redviper26's?) about the winter storm in the Southeastern US and trying to get a handle on what roads were closed. Now I can't find the thread, but to the point, there needs to be a real-time method to update continuously changing traffic information. I'm sure there's discussion about that somewhere!) Probably 100 miles of I-10 in the Florida Panhandle region has been closed for over a day, but is close to being opened as temperatures begin to crawl above freezing.

There's no Wazers out on the roads because so many main roads are closed. It would be interesting (for the developers) to explore real-time integration with sites such as this: http://www.flhsmv.gov/fhp/traffic/crs_h002.htm

One problem I noticed is that. People may not know of an event until the day before so adding to waze might not get done in time. How long does it take to check and add these events?

This is my first semi-success with the new process. It's frustrating to say the least. First, I learn of the event, then remember to view it in the editor in Waze, then submit a form with a complete description of what is to be done, then I have to wait for an e-mail that gives me a spreadsheet into which I paste segment numbers from the editor, and I have to request access to that spreadsheet, THEN someone has to put the restrictions in a day before the actual event. I don't learn about these things until a week before, sometimes, and other times they're not completely specified.

Maybe there's a way we can allow users to enter restrictions for roads locked above their rank and then have some modest review process rather than all this crazy time-consuming process to allow me to specify something of modest traffic impact in the grand scheme of things.

Thank you Orit, is a new thing and will help us a lot.
It would be nice to have also the possibility to translate it so as to facilitate the work of the local user.

Small note to the form. You don't need to provide Gmail Account to share Google Spreadsheet, it may be any e-mail added to the Google Account.
