Allow us to avoid certain roads alongs routes, (toll roads, construction, traffic)
Great news. Setting to avoid toll roads is already available globally. It is also possible to mark dangerous zones on map editor level, so the app could warn you if your route goes through one of dangerous zones.

It would be nice to be able to avoid specific roads depending on their characteristics... For example very small roads, where you are able to have only one car...

Not just tolls and construction. When I travel from NJ to NY waze wants me to go through NY city. But I want to avoid NY city at all costs. Also, you should be able to select temporary or permanent change. Thanks

In Washington DC area, highway I66 is open only to HOV from 6.30 am to 9.30 am and 4 - 6.30 pm. So, I wouldn't want this highway on my Waze but it shows -up. So, a feature to avoid a particular road will be extemely helpful.
Allow us to ban (banish forever) the very existence of an obnoxious road from our personal navigation's... For example, not willing to drive thru dangerous ghetto, car won't handle a crazy winding mountain road or it's infested with street racers, vehicle is too much of a city car to ban reliably pass thru a beat-up stretch, etc
32 states thru a 48:state run, i80 i85 and i95 I'm looking at you...
BTW, please separate "avoid interstates" from other highway avoidance or allow prioritizing state/county vs "US" system vs "I" interstates. Scenic routes are a pain to lay down, and US system currently owns all over interstates in most areas!!!
I am a truck driver in the southeast region and mostly in Mississippi. I'm instructed a lot of times via navigation, to take the "Natchez Trace Parkway" which I enjoy travelling on in my off time but that federal parkway does not allow commercial vehicles. I would like and appreciate to be able to select that specific road (and others like it) to avoid and be given the best options disregarding that road. Thank you.

Agree. It would be great if we could avoid roads in slums, etc...
There is a train accident on a road I travel. The only other way around is 30 miles the other way. Need the ability to post a roadblock so that waze won't use that road or at least an option to find a route that avoids that section of highway. I saw a lot of wazers before that accident and few after. Three weeks of incorrect directions appears to have discouraged some users. Clicking routes does nothing because the only other way around is thirty miles out of the way.
There is a road I usually avoid, because of the jam at the intersection. Figured that Waze knew the traffic conditions, so I tried it. This option would be nice
