System detected problem Types: Added more clarification
To display the problem reports on the WME screen, use the [[Map_Editor_Interface_and_Controls#Layers|layer]] control to turn on the Map Problem layer.
==System detected problem Typestypes==As stated earlier, it is generally not advised to mark any of these automated problem reports as Not Identified.* '''Missing road''' - The roads are too far apart from each other and most likely a road is missing in between. In many cases the missing roads are identified in Parking Lotsor areas with obstructions to the GPS satellites. Please see For parking lots review the guidelines regarding the mapping of [[Best map editing practice#Parking Lots|Parking Lots]]before continuing. Be advised that more than 60% a high percentage of this map error type appear appears to be bogus or require requires no action be taken at all. Mark it as Solvedif there is no obvious issue.* '''Restricted turn might be allowed''' - The route goes through a turn which is marked as not allowed. Select the segments around the junction indicated to find if the direction of the turn is limited by a turn restriction. These are usually very accurate in finding incorrect turn restrictions. However, note that in some cases, it may be indicated for a [[Best_map_editing_practice#Time_Restricted_Turns|time restricted turn]] or possibly an illegal turn that the driver made anyway. For both cases either fix it or just mark is Solved.* '''Driving direction mismatch''' - Drivers are driving against the defined one-way direction of the street. If this is a 2-way segment, change it. Be sure to research whether this is really a 2-way street (or 1-way going the other direction) first, as Wazers walking or biking could be causing the map problem to appear. Once fixed mark it Solved.* '''Missing junction''' - The roads are close to each other, however, they are not connected by a junction. If the visual map shows them connected then fix it and mark it Solved. This problem can also happen if two roads are close to each other and due to GPS inaccuracy, Waze snaps the driver to one road and then to the other when it "figures out" they really weren't on the other road. In those cases, this problem is bogus. Mark it as Solved.* '''Cross roads junction missing''' - The roads intersect each other, however, there is no junction in the intersection point. This happens most often when a map editor draws a new road crossing an existing one, but forgets to create a junction between the two. Fix it and mark it Solved.* '''Suggested route frequently ignored''' - Waze has calculated that most users did not follow the suggested route. The number in the green circle shows how many drives were taken along that route. Look for missing connections or incorrect turn restrictions which may cause Waze to not choose that driving direction. There are many reports that show the purple suggested route head into dead ends. If there are no missing connections or incorrect turn restrictions, then either leave it open for another editor to review, or mark it Solved.
