Maximum Speed limit signs are a red circle with the limitation in black, minimum speed limit signs are a white circle with the limitation in white with a blue background.
  
Maximum Speed limit signs are a red circle with the limitation in black on a white background. These are the only signs that should be used to determine speed limits. Combination signs combine a speed limit sign, a specific road/danger condition, e.g. winding roads and would typically include a distance in Km that applies.<br>

Revision as of 01:53, 27 April 2016

Waze implements Throttling of edits when mass editing occurs.

If you mass edit:

  • You will not get credited for your edits.
  • You will not get any points for your edits.
  • You WILL be removed from the MapRaid immediately.
  • Possibly banned from editing altogether.

Please think quality not quantity.



Welcome to the Wiki for the South African MapRaid. The raid is scheduled to run from 30th April to 8th May 2016. Sign up for the raid at http://bit.ly/MMR_SouthAfrica

Focus

Our primary focus is verifying and Updating Speed Limits (SL). If you find other issues while working on SLs that need attention, feel free to give it. Remember, the main goal is Speed Limits.

Areas and Groups

South Africa has nine provinces - each of these provinces will be a raid area. As some provinces are less developed than others you will have access to some of the others. Please keep to your province until you are satisfied there is nothing more to do there. Lesotho and Swaziland are not part of South Africa. Please do not edit there.

  1. Western Cape
  2. Eastern Cape
  3. Northern Cape
  4. Free State
  5. Kwa-Zulu Natal
  6. North West
