Google maps just suggested me a longer route that also takes a longer time over a shorter route with less time. Why does it do that?
The fastest way is not always the safest . I've had the same prob. And the whole traffic jam is true also .
The shorter route has a higher chance of ending up in a traffic jam, I believe.
Sometimes the longer routes are just easier (directions) to follow.
The shorter route is new and not recommended .. But the longer one is always safe and absolute .
