Importance of road types: added bullet point about penalties and moved sentence about various public road types under the public roads section
#* Since freeways are given the highest priority of all, having other high-type roads is necessary to provide viable alternatives to the routing server in case freeways are clogged with traffic.
# When viewing the map, more important roads should appear at the far zoom levels. Without proper types, the zoomed out display can be misleading.
 The {{Freeway}} and {{Ramp}} # Certain [[#Other drivable roads|other drivable road types each have their own special rules]] generate [[Routing penalties#Segment properties|transition penalties]] when a route leaves them onto a different road type. The {{Major Highway}}, {{Minor Highway}}, and {{Primary Street}} types are designated using a set of minimum criteria, as explained #* This can be useful for areas like [[#HighwaysPrivate Installations|belowprivate installations]]but can also cause dramatic and unexpected routing results.

Public roads are those that can be driven by anyone. Naturally, they are by far the most important roads on the Waze map.
 
The {{Freeway}} and {{Ramp}} road types each have their own special rules. The {{Major Highway}}, {{Minor Highway}}, and {{Primary Street}} types are designated using a set of minimum criteria, as explained [[#Highways|below]].
