Too long

Waze bots will add junctions to reduce the length of any segment longer than 100km. In addition, there are several good reasons to keep segments shorter than 10km:

  • Long roadways or railroads with the city name present will cause a smudged city issue on the city layer.
  • Editors cannot change the name or properties of segments that extend outside of an editor's editable area
  • Long segments require more resources in the client and WME when rendering them on screen.
