* Use [[Scripts/WME_Toolbox|WME Toolbox]], and use the recommended settings shown in the screenshot.
* Use [[Scripts/WME_Validator|WME Validator]] to assist with identifying roads to update.
* Then install the [https://greasyfork.org/en/scripts/14878-wme-validator-localization-for-nebraska WME Validator Localization for Nebraska]
* [[Scripts/WME_Color_Highlights|WME Color Highlights]] to help identify other potential problem roads, such as rural one-way roads that should be two-way.

Try reloading the roads (ALT+SHIFT+R) to ensure you're seeing valid data. # '''Incorrect [[Interface_guide#Junction_Arrows|u-turns]]'''. ## Enabled U-turns should be somewhat rare in urban areas, and almost non-existent in rural areas. ## When basemap editing in ''rural areas'', it is generally safe to assume the u-turn should be removed. The "Q" hotkey with WME Toolbox will remove them easily. ## In urban areas, u-turns are governed by [[Nebraska#U-turns|the Nebraska u-turn wiki section]] # '''Reverse connections'''. # '''[[Junction_Style_Guide#One-segment_loops|One-segment loops]]''' (often at the end of rural driveways). ## You can try to repair the loop, but often these are best simply deleted and the preceding driveway adjusted/extended some. # '''[[Junction_Style_Guide#Every_loop_must_be_made_up_of_three_or_more_segments|2-segment loops]]''' that should be 3-segment (example: multi-entry rural driveways arcs). ## First ensure the correct Road Type and Direction... ## Then select one of the endpoint junctions and press "Q" to have WME Toolbox automatically add an additional junction node for you. Or draw a new road with one end connected to a point in the middle of the loop, then delete the new road. # '''Private farming paths''' that probably should not be mapped at all in Waze (to irrigation pivots, grain silos, other private building that no Wazer would route to.)# '''Driveways to buildings that no longer exist''', or other superfluous roads.# '''"Spaghetti"''': A mess of private roads, paths, tracks added from a previous visual analysis of satellite imagery. # '''Missing, outdated, or incorrect road names''', or they do not match the [[Nebraska#Major_roads|NE road naming standards]] or [[Abbreviations_and_acronyms/USA|USA abbreviations]]. # '''Private roads with the [https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=634&t=58461#p523659 State set as Iowa].'''
