Information related to using Waze in the State of Vermont.

This new page is currently undergoing modifications. The information presented should be considered a draft, not yet ready for use. This content is open to changes from anyone during construction. If you would like to make changes or have questions, please post a message in this forum. Please use the talk page for thoughts and ideas on setting up this content.


Cities and towns

There are 251 Cities and Towns in the state. See Vermont/Cities and towns for proper naming information.

Major roads

See Road names/USA, Road types/USA and Vermont/Roads by type


Landmarks

Landmarks in Vermont should follow the guidelines from the state of Connecticut until the national standards are complete.


Major construction projects

See the Vermont forum for a list of long term road closures and changes to traffic flow that impact the Waze Map.


Road types

Locking roads

In Vermont we have a set minimum standard for locking roads based on segment type. Any road of a certain segment type must be locked at least to the rank (level) in the chart below. Roads may be locked higher for protection and special situations (areas with construction, tricky design, frequent mistakes, imaging inaccuracies, and the like), but should not be locked lower.

A great time to implement these locks is while bringing the road types of an area into compliance with the current US road type standards (FC and highway systems). Lock the roads based on type after they've been set to current US road type standards.

Vermont Minimum Locking Rank Standard

National guidance

Alleys

  • Alleys should always be mapped if they have a name.
  • Alleys should always be mapped if they are the sole access to a home or business.
  • Alleys should always be set to "Private"
  • Alleys are normally mapped if they are acknowledged by the municipality.

If an alley does not meet the above criteria, mapping is optional. Leave the name field blank.

Non-drivable roads

Generally, if a path can't be driven on (e.g. Walking Trail, Pedestrian Boardwalk, Stairway, Railroad, Runway/Taxiway) then it not normally mapped. If it is mapped, it should not be connected to any roads. This is due to the way the routing engine works, as Waze will route users to drive on these "non-drivable" road types.

It is permitted to map Railroads since some users run Waze while on the train and contributing false data to the system. This false data has been known to effect drivers on adjacent roads. Railroads should be level -5 and locked at the highest level of the editor.

Time restricted turns

There is beta testing for setting Time Based Restricted turns in WME. Watch for announcements in the forum on this feature

Speed / red light cameras

Both speed and red light cameras are NOT legal in the State of Vermont.[1]

Other camera types

These are cameras or signs that either provide driver feedback or are used for traffic control. These devices CAN NOT issue tickets and should not be mapped.

How to Identify Cameras.
