Lock Waze to a chosen route
When I choose a route, there should be a way to keep Waze from redirecting back to a route I did NOT choose. In Raleigh, NC, 540 has much less traffic and construction than route 1 to interstate 40 when traveling from south of the city to the airport. But Waze keeps directing me back to US 1. I is hugely annoying! I understand there is a crowd-source/traffic-based algorithm, but I should be allowed to choose a different route. I end up following Waze so I don't miss the exit off 540 I orginally wanted.
Came here to also suggest the ability to lock a route. If I know that taking Waze's suggestion based on traffic will LIKELY result in my going far off my preferred route only to find that traffic fills in while I'm on my way to Waze's suggested route - I'd like to lock in a route I know will be tolerable. I want to use Waze on a "preferred" route because I still want to see hazards and police and upcoming traffic - but I don't want to be rerouted, sometimes.
(Wouldn't be a bad idea to allow us to REFUSE a specific roadway, while being routed, too - maybe there is a better route besides my preferred route that doesn't go to that interstate that always ends up jammed up!)
