→‎Entering HOV restrictions: wordsmithing formatting, corrected staff statement
{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' Restrictions for Toll free/Allowed/Prohibited are treated as AND conditions when comparing the separate lines on the first popup window. Within in a single restriction type on the second popup window, the various restrictions are treated as OR conditions. So saying that private vehicles with HOV-2+ and taxis are allowed will route either type of vehicle '''IF''' in the same restriction (on the second popup window). If they are entered as two separate restrictions on the first popup window then nothing will be routed since you have to simultaneously be both a private vehicle with HOV-2+ and a taxi; this is not possible.
If something is an allowed restriction then only that type of condition(s) can pass on the road, all others are considered to be prohibited
Do not use conflicting restrictions - ex all vehicles with Sunpass are allowed but taxis are prohibited. A taxi can have a Sunpass and the algorithm is not set up to have a precedence preference or hierarchy yet, so improper routing can happen.}}

Waze Staff states that prohibited rules (eg for vehicle types not supported ) should not be added as a restriction if they may conflict with an allowed rule until we are notified that the programming is changedto handle such conflicts.}}# Click '''the {{Button|format=bold|Add''' }} button in bottom right corner
# Repeat for any additional HOV restrictions required for the segment(s) selected
# If the HOV lane is open to all traffic for the rest of day, then no other time restrictions are required (traffic travels in the same direction rest of the day)
#* Add the appropriate time restrictions for when the opposite direction is closed
#* While entering restrictions, remember there is often a transition time gap between traffic direction reversals to prevent collisions
# Click '''the {{Button|Save''' }} icon on the light blue waze Waze bar
{{mbox|type=important|text= '''Note''' be sure to add the '''Driving is Prohibited''' period(s) if a reversible lane does not allow traffic to prevent misrouting.}}
