  1. Enable the Difficult Turn setting to be time/day specific

    Today we have the ability to mark a turn as difficult, but we don't have a way to say it is only difficult during certain times of the day like during commute hours, or even to be only weekdays when there is commute traffic.

    The current UI could easily be updated to move the difficult turn box to the end of each row for the restriction. That way if an editor sets up a time for a restriction, it now becomes an option to be 100% restricted, or just difficult.

    The editor could then set up a left turn being…

    • Route away from schools at pickup & dropoff time

      We've been noticing an increasing amount of Waze traffic near our local elementary school. It is dangerous for the kids who are biking to school (and not yet as reliable as adults) -- we have had three kids hit by cars in our small city so far this year. And I'm sure it is annoying for drivers -- we've seen a lot of folks swerving around slow cars etc.

      I would love to be able to tell Waze the pickup and dropoff windows for our school, and have it automatically route away from the school (and ideally nearby streets).

      Maybe…

        • New editors contact

          Frequently, all we've found bad editions, make it by new and inexperienced editors.

          In Spanish Community we send a PM to those editors, showing what they are making bad, inviting them to know the Wiki and forum or offering them our help.
          Usually this editors don't know about the existence of Wiki neither forums and therefore never read our messages, continuing with his bad and useless work or leave to edit because never see his work in the maps.
          I think would be an interesting tool if when we open WME, would appear a message advertising that they have a…

          • have an alert when waze is directing you into a high crime area

            have an audible alert or color code when waze is directing you into a high crime area. Often locals avoid those areas and they will therefore have less traffic. But not always a good idea to go into those areas especially at night.

            • Put a Seed on the Production map (from the Editor) to "ask for specific questions" to actual wazers

              Could be used for many things.
              My idea would be:
              a) Wazer, do you see a traffic light in "this" corner?
              1. Yes
              2. No

              • Ad Hoc places

                Add the option in "Event mode" to create places for particular events that would last a short period of time (Festivals, fairs, etc) with the ability to be self-extinguished after the event had ended.

                    • Speed Bumps

                      I will suggest the inclusion of speed reducers commonly used in Brazil, called "lombadas" or "quebra-molas" (speed bumps). These elements are rarely well signposted.
                      Are a ridge set in a road surface, for purposes to make drivers to reduce speed.

                      • Aviso de lombadas (quebra-molas)

                        Muito importante o aviso da existência de lombadas ou Saliências, uma vez que a maioria não possui sinalização adequada. Fato que pode até mesmo causar acidentes ou sérios danos ao veículo.

                        • Temporary Speed Limits for construction

                          Allow editors to set Temporary Speed limits, similar to a closing, that will time out to the default, road set limit, after the time period has lapsed. It would be able to be set for the same time period as the closure, if desired, or during events, if necessary.

                            It helps wazers to arrive on correct side of road.
                            Give the correct route, without need to duplicate roads...

                            Other option can be using the NUMBERS (houses) of roads to decide what is the correct way/side should be used...

                              Support: The flodding areas were reported by some regions like Sao Paulo city(http://noticias.uol.com.br/cotidiano/ultimas-noticias/2013/11/22/sao-paulo-tera-sinalizacao-com-aviso-sobre-locais-de-enchentes-neste-verao.htm) and related on reliable sources like GeoSampa.

                              • Comments on PURs

                                It would be nice to have a comment section on a PUR, especially for pictures. It would allow the editors to give a reason why the picture or update is being rejected. So maybe the next time they would try to take a better picture that did not include, faces, license plates, etc. I think this would help the community be more aware of what we as editors can accept. I think being able to tell them the reasons instead of just rejecting it would help more, due to the fact users my be confused or upset that their pictures…

                                  I would like to test a route, from A to B, in the map editor to check if the optimal route is chosen and find the reason why not. It could be easier to find that waze leads astray which happened to me this summer. Waze tried to lead me against a one way street.

                                    In the UK, we have a large number of narrow two way roads which are often only the width of a single vehicle. You can often meet oncoming traffic head-on with no easy way of passing unless one driver decides to reverse. Either that, or at best, you both end up with scratched paintwork.

                                    Waze has no way of knowing which roads are narrow, so will often route along this type of road. Many of us would prefer to take a longer route to avoid this type of road.

                                    I suggest that within WME we have a tickbox option of…

                                    • Please add electric as one of the gas types so I can find stations with chargers

                                      The find a gas station needs to include electric charging stations for the growing percentage of drivers with electric or hybrid cars. Thanks

                                      • Allow road closing for low rank editors

                                        Allow lower rank editors (like me) to close roads from within WME. Since Waze doesn't want to allow low ranked editors to close roads (for good reasons), the solution would be to only show the closed roads for the editor and group. If others value my contribution, they can subscribe to my group and get additional road closure updates.

                                        It might also be possible to close a road and have it marked unapproved, awaiting for a higher rank editor. But that unapproved closure would be active for the user and group within the App.

                                        If the closed road gains enough…
