Couldn't this be reworded as

due to the quality of the road and/or its surface condition.

I only see supplementary road used in other countries. It's how the US calls it ramps but other countires calls it slip road. I think the same applies with supplementary roads. I think the US calls it something else.

Officially, that would be Local Road. A road with the lowest volume of traffic and lowest speed limit.

I've never heard of macadam until this thread. It's always been asphalt for me. The only "types" that I know that are used for paving material is asphalt and concrete. Oh, and the "latest and greatest" rubberized asphalt to absorb sound...lol

There are YouTube videos on it by, I think, construction companies so you should an idea of what states use the term.

When fixing other issues, should this setting still be used (PS acting as mH and mH acting as MH), or was this old school? I'm asking here since this doesn't seem to be a California only issue. Thank you.

Are you talking about routing preference? Please post a permalink of an example.

Keep in mind that's not a stock feature. I believe it's from Toolbox.

Sorry, I missed PZ's post and wasn't intending to dog-pile on the point.

To add my opinion to this topic, if I read the wiki entry and these posts correctly, I would like to make the following changes/clarifications:

US Hwy Bus Routes - Should not automatically be major but minor minimally.
State Hwy Bus Routes - Should not automatically be minor but minimally classed as primary.

We also have some US Alt routes in NC that I have a tough time deciding what there function should be. So some sort of input/thoughts would be great for that for me.

I will concur with sketch's assessment that going to a FC class based system greatly approves routing. As an example SC barely had anything in the rural areas touched regarding road classification. So a trip from NC to FL would basically be a sticky to interstates and some extent major highways. I took some time to add FC's to the counties I travel on a back way. It is roughly the same amount of time (because of distance) as the freeways. But, after making the changes I am no longer married to the freeways and major highways. It still tries to route me on the freeways for a certain amount of time (Understandable given that the freeway was x minutes faster) but after the next few miles it finally figures out and routes the quickest way down the back way.

I also believe if we go straight FC that would cause less "exceptions" to be had. I really see the advantages of both systems, but I think overall the "hybrid" system has worked pretty well in most cases.

What needs to be stressed in the hybrid system is the word minimally. As in a state highway is minimally classed as a minor highway in Waze.
