Impact to routing

These reports do not affect routing, although when a traffic report is sent, the routing server will take a closer look at the GPS speed information coming from current Wazers in that area to possibly reset the current speed of that segment of road. At that time the routing server will consider the current average speed when routing new direction requests. Otherwise a road full of "reports" on its own will not affect the route selected by the server.
