Cities and towns
One of the most common errors when editing the maps is when an editor creates a road and does not confirm the road by setting the city and road name (or stating it has none).
Some states and territories manage a separate page on cities and towns to identify the specific city names that should be entered, and no others. For states that do not have a separate page to track the names, see this Wikipedia link and find the state or territory in question.
Some states have a separate page to track and identify the major roads in the state, but at this time, this one does not have such a page.
Florida follows the standard USA guidelines for all of the following special road types.
- Divided highways and roadways
- Carpool, HOV, Transit lanes
- Roundabouts and traffic circles
- Toll roads
- Partial and scheduled restrictions
- Private installations and military bases
Review the Wiki guidelines for non-drivable roads to ensure compliance with the general guidelines.
Guidelines that vary by state or territory
The following special roads are managed slightly uniquely in some states and territories. This state uses the following standard guidelines found in the Wiki.
The Federal Highway Administration keeps a website indexing all states that can provide highway and construction project information. Go to the page, find your state, and check the links for the desired information.
Not every camera-looking device at an intersection is a speed or red light camera. Generally speaking:
Be sure to know your cameras before accepting new camera reports.
When adding a camera, be sure to review the camera placement recommendations.
Laws regarding speed and red light cameras vary between the states and territories, so be sure to understand the details of camera legality in Florida.
No other camera types should be mapped in Waze.
Based on information researched at the time this page was created, Waze editors have not determined the legality of red light or speed cameras in Florida.
To do list
Many states and territories keep an active list of pending or closed actions that need to be done in the state by the editors. All editors are welcome to contribute to the list of activities.
This state does not currently have an active "to do" list at this time. Check in the Florida section of the Waze forums to discuss creating one.
The table below identifies the editors also designated as Area Managers or higher who are editing in Florida. If you have any questions, please consider contacting them directly as needed. If you are an Area Manager that covers Florida, or a USA Country Manager that does a lot of work in Florida, please add yourself to this list (alphabetical by username) in the correct rank section.
The editor who also serves as the Regional Coordinator for Florida is automatically listed at the top of the table. That editor may not be highly active in this state and therefore may not be listed separately in the table.
|This Area Manager table is a placeholder and has not yet been entered for Florida. Check the Waze Florida forum if you would like to help get it started. Once that is done this link will create the initial table automatically.|
