Very true, I think , it is best to by your experience of the Roads - Traffic Patterns.
Some roads are taken by slow drivers, Some roads are faster, though they pass thru construction zones.
Waze has never saved me a lot of time. Compare it to Garmin - it just about does the same. The only advantage, it will find you back roads. Well, then your knowledge of the area can surpass this and you would be a better judge of the suggested route--- will going through a back-alley with 6 - 8 Stop Signs, and getting stuck in a long traffic light.... Hmmmm.
Waze very difficult to understand... and difficult to keep up with.
@Revital Ferster I like your point.... Sometime the time saving is so insignificant... . On most occasions Waze shows a big time saving, and as you near the destination - it say Oops!! traffic is building up and shows a BOLD RED LINE.. as if I never knew.
But yes, Thanks to Waze i learned all the back roads of toronto really well. Don't use the app anymore. It is plain confusing, and it like having a nagging backseat driver.
I am not driving an Ambulance or an emergency services vehicle.
This is a wonderful idea.
I like the timing part.
However, I dont like the part, where you would like to slow down based on the lights timing.
This is especially annoying for those following. And also that will contribute to a back up and caused the entire lane, to slow down, because one Waze user is timing and try to make the signal at Green. How about all those following, trying to make it or get closer to a traffic light. Thus increasing chances to cross that particular light.
I like this idea. Most intersections take longer to clear. Some traffic lights are time much longer. Such instances will cause delays in the route.
Waze update the time but, doesn't reroute or plan the route in advance to avoid such LONG and TIME Consuming Traffic Lights.
