    In  Logic, there is something called the Fallacy of Composition.  The Fallacy of Composition involves taking attributes of part of an object or class and applying them to the entire object or class.  My best example is:  "If I stand on my tiptoes, I will see the parade better."  The fallacy is, if everyone stands on their tiptoes, no one sees the parade better.

    What does this have to do with Waze?  When the primary route is backed up for any reason, Waze suggests an alternate route.  While that might be good for me if I am the only one who follows that advice, if everyone does it, no one is better off and, in fact, may be worse off than having stayed on the original route.

    My suggestion is that Waze suggest multiple (but not more than one per driver) alternate routes that may be within minutes of each other in terms of time to work around the blockage.  Instead of, say, 1,000 drivers all diverting to a single alternate route, by giving each group of 200 drivers an alternate path, moving the "lump in the rug " from A to B is avoided.

    What do you think?
