Parking Lots: Corrected typo (by removing a single letter 's').
*using the special type prevents Waze from routing traffic through the parking lot.
For marking parking lots with places see the information on the [[Places/Parking lot|Parking Lot Place type]]. Parking lots lot roads are not limited to use with the parking lot place type, though they are sometimes used together.
The Parking Lot Road type exists to allow the mapping of parking lots, while discouraging the routing server from using them for through navigation. Waze applies a [[Routing penalties|transition penalty]] for leaving a Parking Lot Road segment to enter another road type. This penalty decreases the chance that Waze will route through a parking lot as a shortcut but allows better navigation in and out of a parking lot. It is advised not to mix road types within a parking lot to avoid triggering the transition penalty unnecessarily.
