    Residential quality of life is being horribly diminished by massive increases in cut through traffic routing. Not only are personal vehicles using residential neighborhoods for cut through - so are commercial - and this is in large part due to apps such as Waze. The word "Route" has a traffic control definition. I.E. throughout the country NUMBERED ROUTES were created with the intent that those numbered routes be used for traffic movement/flow. Apps such as Waze take people off Routes for the sake of sometimes seconds saved - yet with GREAT negative affect on the side areas that are not intended to be used for routing. Recently a friend was routed off a Route - and onto a residential street - only to be back on the route minutes later. We are so deeply enmeshed in a loss of/lack of common courtesy. It would be nice if apps, such as Waze, were supportive contributors to courtesy. Apps could be tweaked to help people get from point A to point Z, but without harmful effects on the abutters to roadways not intended to be Routes. Google/Waze - any desire to be the "Considerate App"????
