The <b>[http://nps.gov/ National Park Service (NPS)]</b> is part of the Department of the Interior  and is responsible for care and operation of more than 400 sites.  NPS has an overlap of responsibility with local communities, Indian Tribes, and other entities.  With 275 million visitors per year, Wazers are going to be visiting these locations.  
 
  
Park roads are constructed only where necessary, and only as necessary, to provide access for the protection, use and enjoyment of the natural, historical, cultural and recreational resources which constitute our National Park System. National park roadways, where they exist, are planned for leisurely sightseeing and are located with
 
sensitive concern for the environment and designed with extreme care. They are often narrow, winding, and hilly.  In some cases they take on the characteristics of interstates or major highways, such as around Washington, D.C.

[http://plus.google.com/communities/110439206016891712850 Waze New York Google+ Community]
  
For purposes of functional classification, the routes which make up a park road system are grouped based on use into three categories: Public Use Park Roads, Administrative Park Roads, and Urban Parkways and City Streets.  Note that federal or state roads may exist within National Park System lands.  This section only refers to the roads that are maintained by the NPS.
 
  
The assignment of a functional classification to a park road is not based on traffic volumes or design speed, but on the intended use or function of that particular road or route.
