Waze can warn you about unplowed roads during winter

  Waze can warn you about unplowed roads during winter Winter is full of driving challenges, particularly unplowed roads -- they're slogs at best, and downright dangerous at worst. Waze might help you steer clear, though. It just updated its Android and iOS apps with the ability to report unplowed roads in real-time. You'll know if last night's snowfall will lead to some detours on your way to work. The feature was prompted by a team-up with Virginia's Department of Transportation as part of the Waze for Cities initiative that provides data to communities. In theory, this doesn't just help you save time and stay safe.

Police say that has been happening to some drivers using the Waze navigation app.

People were expecting to be taken to the Borgata Hotel, but wound up in the middle of the Collier Mills wildlife area near Jackson Township.

Police say the unpaved roads are destroying people’s cars and leaving them stranded.

“Please take extra care when selecting locations listed with the orange “Ad” logo in the corner or places which have multiple names, with the same address; however are considerable distances apart,” Jackson Police said in a Facebook post.

Waze expects to have the problem fixed sometime today.
