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.
