World's most useless UR?

Post by Dave2084
Probably not the worst ever, but how about we collect screenshots of those that make us think WTF?#!%

OK, Nominate this one:
Kegworth (Leics) - M1 passes the threshold of the runway for East Midlands Airport.

Use reports a UR: General Error, with comment "low flying jets"!

Perhaps I'm supposed to move or close the airport?

I do hope it reappears.
Quite often if you are not routing they can appear in front of you and you go a different way and miss it, though I don't think I've seen them appear off a planned route ...

Anyway the good news is that it will appear next time you're on Waze. If it happens to me and I really want to get the points then I quit Waze and start it up again and then it should appear again in that journey.

Is there any way to contact the author of a UR, to ask what the problem is? Sometimes "general error" is not sufficient information to make a fix!

No, there used to be a way, and there will be again, but not at the moment.

Wish I'd kept a pic!

I've just come across this one. The user really wasn't wrong to report it as "Wrong driving direction":
