How to map toll restrictions

  • Mark a road segment as a toll segment only:
  1. The segment has a toll booth, transponder reader, or other tolling device
  2. Do not mark the toll restriction for segments that lead up to the final toll segment even if they have no other exit except the final toll segment
Note Waze assigns a large penalty for each road segment marked with a toll restriction if a user has avoid toll roads selected. Marking each toll booth/transponder for segment helps to route the user off at each exit if the user has selected avoid tolls but allows them to take a short toll road if only reasonable route.
