Draft/requests from police

From Wazeopedia

Our role, as editor, is to map the reality. Waze relies on a correct map to propose the optimal route to each Wazer.

How do we handle requests to deviate from the reality, in order to influence the route proposed to the Wazers? Those requests usually come from authorities, from organisers of events, or from mobility partners. Those requests are generally well intentioned, they offer a benefit, often to the local residents.

Implementing such a deviation degrades the performance of Waze, which will propose suboptimal routes to Wazers. How do we balance that degradation with the global benefit of the request?

It is not our role, as individual editors, to decide about implementing those requests. Those exceptional requests must be addressed to the community of Belgian Country Managers (level 5+ editors).
