Pacman Roads
 
Unconfirmed roads marked with dots (cookies) that have not been driven upon since being created or significantly edited in the Waze Map Editor. Driving over these roads earns you points and turns your car icon into a Pacman-type character that "munches the dots".
 
What are those dots on some of the roads?
 
These are roads that haven't been driven over since they first appeared on the waze map, whether they were imported from another mapping source, created in the map editor, or paved from the application. They are more likely than other roads to have mistakes in their shape or junctions, so treat them with caution. When you drive over such roads your Waze car changes to a Pacman-type character and "munches the dots". This earns you points and confirms that the road is really there. Many Wazers call these Pacman-roads.-->
