In late 2012 a discussion was started in the&nbsp;[http://www.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=247 Connecticut Section]&nbsp;of the Waze Forum that determined the existing world-wide guideline of "don't map individual businesses" wasn't enough and we needed a more complete set of guidelines for landmarks in Connecticut. As a result of that discussion we've come up with a set of guidelines for landmarks in Connecticut. If you wish to propose changes to these guidelines, please do so in the forum. As always, the world-wide rule of "don't map individual businesses" still applies.

<li>[http://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Road_types/USA#Dirt Dirt Roads]&nbsp;- In Connecticut&nbsp;'''ALL'''&nbsp;roads that are normally unpaved are considered dirt roads as this is how GPS Nav users (any brand) expect the "Avoid Dirt Roads" feature to behave.

=== <span class="mw-headline" id="Non-drivable_roads">Non-drivable roads</span> ===
Generally, if a road can't be driven on (e.g. Walking Trail, Pedestrain Boardwalk, Stairway, Railroad, Runway/Taxiway) then it should not be mapped in Waze. This is due to the way the routing engine works, as Waze&nbsp;'''WILL'''&nbsp;route users to drive on these "Non-Drivable" road types. Please note there are several Railroads mapped in Connecticut, these are due to users incorrectly running Waze while on the train & contributing false data to the system. This false data has been known to effect drivers on adjacent roads. These railroads are mapped in a'''''VERY'''''&nbsp;particular manner by Senior Area Managers and Country Managers to prevent Waze from routing on them.
== <span class="mw-headline" id="Speed_.2F_red_light_cameras">Speed / red light cameras</span> ==
Speed and Red Light Cameras are&nbsp;'''NOT CURRENTLY LEGAL'''&nbsp;in the State of Connecticut, although there have been several proposals go through the legislature. There is no such prohibition on "driver feedback signs" - a radar/laser equipped sign that measures speed and displays the speed back to the driver. These can be fixed or trailer mounted with the later being much more prevalent. These devices&nbsp;'''CAN NOT'''&nbsp;issue tickets.
There are also cameras mounted on traffic signals that are used as part of the signal control. These compare sequential images of the intersection approach to determine if there is a vehicle (car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, etc) waiting and will trigger the sequence. These devices&nbsp;'''CAN NOT'''&nbsp;issue tickets.
There are traditional traffic monitoring cameras covering most of the major highways in the state. These send live video to CT DOT & local media and serve ONLY as a traffic monitoring system.
