For example, searching for "parking lots" redirects https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Parking_lots#Parking_Lots when it really should be redirecting to https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Best_map_edi ... rking_Lots.

While I agree with you, that is Wikimedia. I just ran a similar test on Wikipedia and get the same result. FAD. I doubt we could change that operation considering Wikipedia does it now.

Wikimedia is effed up then. It really makes no sense to me. When you click the redirected page link at the top, then click the big link from the redirect page, it takes you to the properly named page with anchor. This is a design flaw.

I agree, but doubt there is an easy fix if Wikipedia still has the issue. ;)
