  1. 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…

        • 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

          • 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.

              • 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.

                • (Flooding Area) Area sujeita a alagamento

                  Add to map places where there is flooding possibility. These places should appear on the map as warning if app receive any alert near of 10 km about climate risk or flooding, and if confirmed by user on app, change the routing as already made.
                  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.
                  This update was also reported by other users but with other ideas (https://waze.uservoice.com/search?filter=ideas&query=alagamento).

                  • Please add/return the Separation Line on two-way roads

                    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...

                      • 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.

                              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.

                                Hi
                                Waze can save lives with defibrillator placements on map.
                                user will update placements with defibrillator that they own or know, and when someone will need it, he will search for it on Waze map and can save lives.

                                • Team up with Pokemon for rare pokemon locations.

                                  Rare pokemon are hard to find, but they are always in set locations for a small period of time, just like a traffic accident. You could easily piggypack the popularity of Pokemon Go and get a ton of people to use your app for finding and reporting rarer pokemon locations.

                                  • Automatic forum login when in WME.

                                    Recommend that whenever a user logs into WME Production then they automatically get their forum account opened. You use the same user name and password.
                                    This way editors don't have to catch a new editor's attention in WME chat or via a UR or "red roads".
                                    Since the feed shows that you have a new PM when in WME this would seem to be a logical next step.

                                    • 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.

                                        • Comments and Notes as separate layer

                                          I think it would be very useful to have a option to add/edits comments/notes in a manner such as a "Venue type" (place type) point/area. The difference from the existing venue functionality is that the comment/note would be on a different layer, and would not be rendered in the livemap or in the app (i.e., only visible on WME).

                                          The idea is that in WME, this would allow longer term notes to be made, edited, locked, and deleted in a manner similar to existing place points/area functionality, in order to explain certain unusual mapping issues.

                                          For instance:
                                          - temporary/construction related…
