Personally, I usually don't "not there" police reports on the off chance that one might be patrolling the area or maybe relocated a half a mile down. Users don't get a notification saying "Someone reported your report as 'not there'", so I don't really understand how it'd have any deterrent effect.

I do the same for "Vehicle stopped on shoulder" reports which are for clearly abandoned vehicles – I don't report them personally, I don't thumbs-up them, but I don't report them as "not there", because I figure someone else would just report it again, making a fresh report that lasts longer than it would even with a thumbs up. Because technically, there isa vehicle stopped on the shoulder...

At first I was like, "So what's the problem here, exactly?"

But then I looked to the west

Not that that answers my question, but wow!

Oh, turns out it was me all along... Those long road trips really mess with the brain, I guess.

I also don't recall making this report in the same spot.

Hmmmm, although isn't it true that the Shell and Chevron logos are typically in title case, whereas "TEXACO" is generally in all caps? :D

Haha, my old TomTom was very pessimistic about arrival times. I once beat it by some five hours or so on a long trip. Although, the Garmin I had before that was almost eerily accurate.

Allow me to translate.

"curious I'm busting my butt pedal to the metal when I can ,how fast (mph)do you time ETA?"

"curious" = I'm just curious,

"I'm busting my butt pedal to the metal when I can" = I am driving as fast as I can when traffic permits

"how fast (mph)do you time ETA?" = What speed do you use to measure the ETA over a known distance?

Either he's beating the ETA there and wondering what the reference speed is to account for the disparity, or the ETA is actually accurate for him and he's wondering if Waze expects him to be speeding.

Hah!

The one in Covington, though? I just fixed that a couple weeks ago! The Google marker is in the right place now...

Many states are replacing their particular landmark guidance pages with the US Places guide. Maybe contact your regional coordinator — I feel like this is going to / should happen countrywide, but some states' wikis haven't gotten around to it.
