It does not prevent Waze from snapping a driver to the segments if it determines they are on such a lane, and any recalculation of the route from these segments is correct as well. However, as noted above, the fact that these lanes are usually quite close to the normal/open freeway or highway, makes it unlikely Waze will automatically recognize their true location due to GPS inaccuracy and margin of error.</span>

HOT lanes are often marketed as "Express Lanes"; however, the term "Express Lanes" is also used by various regional governments for non-HOT lanes. In order to be considered a HOT lane for Waze purposes, a road needs to meet all criteria listed above.
The entrances {{mbox| type = cleanup| textstyle = color: red; font-weight: bold; font-style: italic;| text = There have been major changes to HOT the way [[Carpool,_HOV,_Transit_lanes|HOV lanes ]] are handled in the WME. The text below is out of date and should not be marked with utilized when editing the toll flag. This prevents Waze from routing those wishing to avoid tolls onto the HOT lanes, while allowing Waze to use the HOT lanes for routing for those willing to pay a toll for a faster commute.map}}
<span style="text-decoration: line-through;">The entrances to HOT lanes of the HOT itself should not be flagged as a marked with the toll roadflag. This prevents Waze from routing those wishing to avoid tolls onto the HOT lanes, to prevent while allowing Waze from trying to route HOV users out of use the HOT lanes if they have for routing for those willing to pay a toll avoidance active in the clientfor a faster commute.</span>

Just itself should not be flagged as with the current HOV best practicesa toll road, those that meet the HOV requirements and wish to use the HOT lanes need to navigate themselves prevent Waze from trying to route HOV users out of the HOT lanes; if they are not be routed onto them by have toll avoidance active in the Waze client. As with standard HOV lanes, HOV users need to recalculate the route for Waze to snap them to the HOT lane.</span>
