Rural driveways in NE should frequently be mapped (as Private Roads), even if shorter than the general Driveways recommendation of 50 meters. Drivers will often be travelling at a high speed, and an upcoming turn provides the necessary advanced warning of their destination. Driveways also serve as useful navigation landmarks on otherwise featureless rural roads. If they are not mapped, Waze may mistakenly snap to a nearby road and interfere with the speed data or provide confusing directions. When mapping a new driveway, check the House Numbers on all nearby roads to ensure all entries are closest to the most appropriate road or driveway.

Urban driveways do not qualify for mapping in most circumstances unless they meet certain route-aiding criteria as defined in the national standards for Driveways.
