U-Turns

The Waze Map Editor allows the enabling or restricting of U-turns using the green or red u-turn icons. U-Turns are legal in maryland with the following restrictions:

MD Transportation Code § 21-402(b) Vehicle turning left or making U-turn

(b) U-turn. -- If the driver of a vehicle intends to turn to go in the opposite direction, the driver shall yield the right-of-way to any approaching vehicle that is so near as to be an immediate danger.

MD Transportation Code § 21-602 U-turn on curve or crest of grade prohibited

(a) Curves. -- The driver of a vehicle on any curve may not turn to go in the opposite direction if the vehicle cannot be seen by the driver of any other vehicle that is within 500 feet and approaching from either direction.

(b) Crests. -- The driver of a vehicle on or approaching the crest of any grade may not turn to go in the opposite direction if the vehicle cannot be seen by the driver of any other vehicle that is within 500 feet and approaching from either direction.

Speed Limits

Speed Limit Sign
Speed limit data added to segments in the WME is used in the Waze app to display an app user's speed relative to the speed limit. In addition, the app notifies users if they exceed a speed limit designated on the Waze map.

Speed limits added to the map should match federal, state, and municipal laws that designate maximum speeds for passenger vehicles.

Speed limits that are designated on private property may be added to road segments on the Waze map at the discretion of regional or state managers.

Special Speed Limits

As of February 2016, the WME and Waze App only support maximum speed limits for passenger vehicles, without variation for time of day. Specialty, also known as 'bannered', speed limits, like the ones shown below, should be disregarded until a time when the WME supports their use.

Advisory Speed Limits

In addition, yellow 'advisory' speed signs (as shown below) are usually not enforceable; therefore, 'advisory' speeds, like the ones shown below, should not be added to the waze map.
