Major traffic events
Any closures reported from the Waze app are visible, and can be manipulated in the Waze Map Editor. Waze app reported closures {{u|do not}} have an effect on routing until enough users report the same segment closed. However if an editor sees it in WME and edits it, the RTCs then take effect immediately. ''For all the details on the display and handling of app-reported closures in WME please see the [[#Understanding closures with an end date circa 1970|section below that explains the WME aspect of these closures]].''
=== Major traffic events Traffic Events (MTEs) ===
If a road closure is part of a larger event, it can be submitted to Waze as a Major Traffic Event, or (MTE). MTEs are generally determined by the scale of the event and how many people will be impacted. The closures should be submitted using the MTE sheets provided. This way Waze is able to track the closures and help spread the word.
To receive further support from Waze (website and/or push + inbox message) for a closure, the event must be submitted through the MTE submission form below.
