A Little About Me

Found out about Waze completely by accident using Google Maps. Was returning home from Chandler when I got caught behind a new accident on I-10 near the tunnel. While I was waiting...and waiting...I figured it would be fun to find out how Google Maps knew about the accident. It stated that it had been reported by a Waze user. I had to find out what that was, so I looked for the app and installed it.

I immediately fell in love with the features and options. It wasn't but a few days when I discovered that editing was an option. I spent hours the first night just adding "red roads" and wondering why my roads were red and all the other roads were white. It didn't take long for another editor to gently inform me of my errors and what to do to correct them.

That first editing day was April 6, 2015. I have not missed a day editing since!!! :)

What Happened?

Here's a great video explaining Waze and its usefulness. Waze YouTube

  • In addition to the Edit Access expansion, I also cleared the 700k Edit mark: 700,242 - January 10, 2018.
  • Unbeknownst to me, I woke up this morning and found that my Edit Access had been expanded to Nevada. I'm guessing they want help with the Subways there as well. No problem. I got this! - January 10, 2018.

  • Was part of the 2017 Presidential Inaugural team for President Trump. I helped where I could. The team should be commended for a great job keeping the roadways closed where necessary to keep harmony during the event. There were a lot of protests, and protesters, in the city for the weekend.
