    I live within four miles of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge on the western side. Re-routing traffic to local roads doesn't speed up east-bound traffic flow when Route 50 traffic is at a standstill waiting to cross the bridge. No one is beating the traffic when the alternate routes come to a standstill as they always do. From whatever way, the bridge is the obstacle. With the local roads bumper-to-bumper, the safety of our communities is being put at risk.

    Because of the bay's topography, most of our residences have only one access road and no way to come in "the backdoor." I have had multiple instances where I have not been able to return home for four to six hours after a local excursion until bridge traffic dissipates on my neighborhood road. As this situation that you are causing continues, how would you expect police, fire and emergency services gain access to our neighborhoods when a responder’s time is imperative in saving lives? Most of our local roads have no shoulder or very little for bypassing the jam. Residents living east of the bridge are experiencing the same issue with west-bound traffic.

    We didn’t have this problem before the advent of WAZE, so please: How can specific local roads be removed from your alternate routes? Today is Friday with the typical highway and local bridge backup, and in this moment, WAZE is seriously endangering our communities’ welfare.
