I'm curious as to where the guidance for this check comes from.

It comes from the suggestion in this thread: forum post No objections, so the check is implemented.
Let me know if the check should be disabled for US.

Hmm, that's exactly what I do - put all the possible destinations shown on the road sign in ramp streetnames. If the check is useful to others that's fine. But I'm not limiting my ramp names to 65 characters.

Re: ramp as non-highway connector

Simply put, there is not Road Type for connectors below the class of highways (freeways, MH, mH).
(I highly favor adding a proper road type for connectors; perhaps this is what "Service road" was originally intended to do.)

For normal classification Streets (primary street, street, and the obsolete service road), any connector is the lower of the two ends.

For Other - drivable (dirt roads, parking lot roads, and so forth) and all Non-drivable types, any connector is just whatever it is.

Ramp is a highway classification in the taxonomy of Road types.
Using Ramp for a street is a misuse of a highway road type for non-highway function.

    Highway
    • Freeway
    • Major highway
    • Minor highway
    • Ramp
    Street
    • Primary street
    • Street
    • Service road

Maybe this discussion should be split from this thread again, but I disagree with this statement. The guidance in the US, as noted above, is that ramps are to be used for grade separated connections. We could discuss changes, but "highway function" is term that we can endlessly debate. Again we should likely have that debate elsewhere.

I guess I'd be inclined to map it as a walking trail. It seems (though it remains essentially unstated) that this is why waze will route to the end of a walking trail when the address is associated with the trail.

Well I wish we could get some further guidance on what the developers intend for us to use walking trails for.

Thanks for the fast fix!

On a side note, is there any chance you can allow street names (in the US) that start with "de", "de la", "del", "el" and "la" to not trigger the #170 rule? There are a number of streets in San Diego that start with those and they are 'correct'.


San Diego has them in lowercase?

Yes, there seems to be some dispute whether such streets are correct over here: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=129&t=64303

To get the roundabout instruction to work correctly on this roundabout, I had to not have the segments connect at the same point.

Certainly there is a difference between many circular intersections and a true roundabout (DC has both). (And I don't think a hamburger roundabout can function as a true roundabout.) I agree the question becomes are the instructions to "take the X exit" more clear than a series of turn/keep instructions through the intersection. At Washington Circle users seem to expect a "at the roundabout take the 4th exit at Pennsylvania Ave NW" instruction rather than a "stay to the right at Pennsylvania Ave NW" instruction.
