'''Segment locks''', applies to both '''manual locks''' and '''automatic traffic locks'''. Everybody (rank 2 and up) has the
#REDIRECT [[Editing restrictions#Segment lock]]
capabilities for manual lock, but in additional to that, country may have '''[[Traffic locks|automatic traffic locks]]'''.
'''Manual locks:''' This type of lock is manually applied by
a higher-ranked editor to a particular segment of road that needs to be protected from accidental change or
vandalism. The more important the road, the more likely it is to be locked.
Other than the fact that they are manually applied by an editor, they function similarly to [[Traffic
locks|automatic traffic locks]]. For an overall description of the various types of editing restrictions, see
the [[Editing permissions]] page.
In brief, there are seven locking ranks. An unlocked segment has a lock rank of 1. 1 thru 6 by the editors and
a "staff lock" by the Waze Staff. 1 thru 6 locking ranks correspond to the 6 editor ranks of "1 traffic cone"
to "6 traffic cones." To edit a segment, its lock rank must be equal to or below your own editing rank. The
segment must also belong to one of your editable areas. See [[Editing permissions]] for full details of all the
restrictions and how they interact.
