New Waze traffic app feature: Waze Carpool

- We are taking a closer look at traffic on our Money Money segment. Waze has a new feature called Waze Carpool. The service allows riders to match up with Waze drivers to match short distances and commute times, thus making your commute cheaper.  Riders can pick who the driver is with their tools, and they get reimbursed for driving expenses up to $.54/mile. 

Here in LA, a lot of users have expressed their concern about challenging left turns, crossing several lanes of traffic. The map editors focused on this issue and have isolated a bunch of left hand turns and rolled out a feature to avoid those dangerous turns. This service is defaulted to "on" for Los Angeles commuters.
The map editing community along with LA city officials and first responders work together to help with situations such as wildfires, and there are steps to avoid people driving through them.
