How to pave a road?

To pave a new road open the report menu:


Choose Map Issue and select the Pave tab:


Click on Pave road to start paving.

To stop paving click on the icon at the left of the screen:


And choose Stop paving:


Note: In areas that are already mapped out, the pave option should only be used when the visual map layer in the Waze Map Editor (WME) does not show the new roads you are about to pave. Otherwise it is easier and better to use the WME to create and validate (name) the road directly through the web interface. Either way you have to use WME to have the road actually appear in the client anyway by confirming the roads.


Now you can get messages into your inbox like:

  • Thanks on your reports after you quit Waze.
  • New Facebook friend who got connected through Facebook connect.
  • Shows a list of all your Facebook friends which are connected through Waze.
