Waze has methods of dealing with this. It's called a private installation...
But we don't just go putting them anywhere arbitrarily. We rely on local governments and DOTs to tell us where to put them. How? By determining if it's a private road or if there are regulatory signs prohibiting through traffic.
So if the homeowners don't want traffic routed through their neighborhood they need to go to their local government and get that done. Then soon as that's legally accomplished, then us editors for Waze will take the steps to prevent through routing through the neighborhood.
The cities need to sue Waze.
No. The city needs to put up a sign that says no through traffic and us Waze editors will make it a private installation. https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Pri...
It's the free market at work. If these jobs keep paying better and better, more and more people will get the training to go into the field and balance it out. But that's not happening because...

As a guy who bought a 128K Mac in 1984 and has been with them all this time (except for a brief period in late 90s) I would have never dreamed a statement like that would someday be true (and oh do I wish I had, and bought the stock!)

I was a very early advocate of moving stuff into the cloud and a very early victim of getting screwed by it. Before the cloud I could spend countless sleepless hours pacing around dealing with things like praying that a SAN spins back up after an extended site power failure with a backup generator fault failure or dealing with irate users on a Christmas morning wondering why I scheduled an email migration to happen that required email to be down for 24 hours. But at least it was my fault and I was in control.
After moving to the cloud I had things like extended service outages where I had irate users and I could do nothing but sit around and look stupid and helpless saying "the vendor is working on it" and not know even if anyone was actually doing anything besides refreshing the ticket system and occasionally posting a ticket update begging for a status update.
