Add "avoid border crossings" setting, just like avoid toll roads or ferries.
Navigating from New York to Detroit, there's a route that crosses through Canada. I didn't bring my passport and wish to avoid this, but if I manually force another route, I might miss out on traffic-responsive optimizations. It should be possible to avoid border crossings just like any other route preference.

Yeah I am planning a move from Portland, OR to Burlington, VT and Waze wants to force me through Canada, which would be fine, but my friend that is moving with us does not have a passport. Almost every trip planner has me go through Canada for some reason and being able to turn it off would be a lifesaver.
In Europe it is the same. Current restrictions are in place due to Covid. Borders are closed. I live really close to France and using waze gets tricky.
Since Covid19, borders that usually don't bother anybody are not allowed anymore. Covid19 is in our lives for more than a year, but still, I can't avoid border crossing. That's awful!

Please add this, huge irritation not being able to it to avoid border crossings especially with the pandemic restrictions.

Specially now with corona regulations being fluctuant.
Waze must add this option to avoid boarders crossing.
I completely agree. Waze almost forced me into Canada without a passport
