A well founded fear, indeed. Lots of small communities around the country are now complaining of increased traffic on local streets as people are routed through local neighborhood streets by Waze and other similar apps.


First of all, the street's layout is already known so Waze already does route cars through the local streets here as everywhere else. From this point of view it can't get worse than it already is.

The way we can make it better for local residents is by adding a no-through-traffic zones for some of the local streets during some time of day - if Waze does support that of course.

Maybe walk?
A whole half-mile? That is crazy-talk.

Jersey City teams up with Waze to share data aimed at easing traffic

JERSEY CITY — Motorists this afternoon had no nice words to describe traffic in Jersey City.

"It took us an hour to get from Bayonne to here," said one man stuck in a line of cars at Baldwin and Pavonia avenues at about 3 p.m. "It's lousy."

El Toure, 18, who attends Dickinson High School, said it takes 30 minutes in the morning rush to drive the half-mile from Newark Avenue and Kennedy Boulevard to the school.

"It's bad," Toure said.

Things may start looking up for motorists looking for the best routes around traffic. Jersey City is teaming up with Google to share data with the tech giant's Waze app, becoming the first city in the New York City metropolitan area to agree to swap information about traffic, road closures and potholes with the navigation app's makers.
