==Standard suffix abbreviations==
+
{{Bottomline}}
Waze convention is to use suffix abbreviations in street names. ("Main Rd" instead of "Main Road").
 
 
 
'''Notes:'''
 
# Abbreviate only suffixes.
 
#*"The Avenue", "The Green", etc. should not be abbreviated.   
 
#*"Circuit Avenue Road" is abbreviated "Circuit Avenue Rd", not "Cct Ave Rd".
 
#*A road named "Service Road" should not be abbreviated, while "Pipeline Service Road" should be (as "Pipeline Service Rd").
 
# Suffix abbreviations do ''not'' contain any punctuation, such as "<code>.</code>" (Full-stops) or "<code>-</code>" (Hyphens).
 
# In the event that the original suffix is a plural (ends in s) and only its singular form is present as an abbreviation, simply adding an "s" to the end of the abbreviation may or may not work as expected unless specified below.
 
# When 'N', 'S', 'E', or 'W' should NOT be pronounced as compass directions, enclose the letter in single quotes.
 
#* George 'W' Bush Blvd
 
#* West 'W' Lee Ave
 
# If your question is not answered here, please ask in the [//www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=129&t=15178 TTS testing topic on the waze forums]
 
# As of 2015-03-18, some entries in this table are no longer valid. They will be updated when resources are available.
