Generally speaking, most two-segment junctions are not required, however some of them are required to ensure the best operation of Waze.

<onlyinclude>* Loop roads. A single segment cannot loop back upon itselfUsage of any external copyrighted source of information, in order to add information to the Waze database or maps, so a junction is required to create two separate segmentsnot allowed. It does External copyright information includes any online or printed map information that is not matter where the junction is located, so long as each segment meets provided by Waze through the {{#ifeq: {{PAGENAME}} | Segment length | minimum segment length | [[Segment length|minimum segment length]]}}Waze Map Editor interface.
* RoadWith the recent acquisition of Waze by Google, cityInc., or state name changechanges have been made to the Waze Map Editor to include updated aerial and street view images from Google. There These are times when a road, city, or state name will change with no other intersecting road at that pointconsidered internal sources and completely acceptable to be used in creating map information for Waze. A junction is added Google's terms of use restricts use of their map information to enable each side of specific conditions and Waze has the junction proper licensing to have a different nameuse what you see inside the Waze Map Editor, but nothing else.
* Ramp or freeway splits. There are cases where a freeway may split into two separate freeways. In order to provide navigation to drivers, it may be necessary to create short segments on Using any source of external copyright information puts the freeway Waze maps under danger of being forced to show the two different road names at the split. Under certain situations it may be best revert all changes done to make the segments as short as possible, so long as each segment meets the {{#ifeq: {{PAGENAME}} | Segment length | minimum segment length | [[Segment length|minimum segment length]]}}. This is covered in detail map in the [[Junction_Style_Guide#Highway.2FFreeway_Splits|Junction Style Guide]]your area / country.
* The segment If any user were to do such a thing, it would otherwise taint all the work that person did on the maps and Waze would need to reverse out all those edits. There could also be too longother adverse effects. {{#ifeq: {{PAGENAME}} | Segment length | | See Waze has already had to remove all the article [[segment length]] maps for more informationChile, and other South American countries because the source of the map data was not properly licensed (not the result of any Waze action).}}</onlyinclude>
For more Users may negotiate with officials in their country for access to aerial images that Waze can use. The user must be careful not to give the impression that they are acting on behalf of Waze. But as an interested citizen any user can speak with local authority, in a local language, to explain the benefits to their country in making aerial images freely available as a public good. Note that external copyright information does not include any source of information that is provided by Waze through the internal tools of the online editor or application. Also any information on this topic see [[Unnecessary junctions]]developed independently by a user being physically present at a site is acceptable to add to the map as long as it is provided without copyright.
