Highways are typically numbered or named roads that can be followed to get from one city to another. If the cities are in different states, it will likely be named as a US highway. If they are in the same state, it will likely be named as a State Highway. If they are in the same county, they may be named as a County Highway. There are two main Highway labels in Waze, Major and Minor. Their use may depend on regional population or traffic densities.
Information on how to lay out ramps and set the proper angles from the main road can be found in the [[Junction Style Guide]].

Parking lots, along with other publicly accessible roads such as alleys that should not be used for traffic routing unless directly at the start or end point of a route.
*Do not map the rows within parking lots because it clutters the map.
*Parking Lots Lot roads have a transition penalty when exiting the Parking Lot roadsroad segment. This should prevent Waze from routing you through a Parking Lot as a shortcut.*Use Parking Lot road type for all necessary segments in the Parking Lot.*The proper use of parking lot roads can also help to avoid automated traffic jam reports as well as Papyrus Map Problems related to Wazers driving in unmapped parking lots. httpDraw in the drivable portions of the parking lot that are near streets and other roadways. This will prevent the Waze routing server from assuming you must be on the main road when in fact you are stopped in the parking lot stopped. [shttp://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=13825&start=20#p117202Additional information on this topic can be reviewed in the forums.]
