  5. Allow adding temporary road/lane closures thru online map

    When there is a major even such as a parade the only way to indicate road closures is to drive to the area and enter the closure thru the app. When a large area is involved you have to drive to all the areas or depend on others to indicate the road is closed. If we could use the online map editor to mark the roads as temporarily closed it would save a lot of time, gas, and frustration since we could mark all the affected roads at once. This would also be helpful when we see something on the…

  6. Remove leve

    Hello waze you have to remove the level users, becouse it's abuses by some witch locks down POI's so we other can't help changing problems, witch apears. It's limited when it comes to changing becouse it has to be aproved by the user witch has been locking the segment or POI's down. and they arnt very fast in doing that.

    I can say that i know lots of pre users of waze witch has unistalled the app and choosed compeditors choise instead becouse the say waze is impossible to get right. becouse it's too slow users.

    Best regards Peter

  7. Aplicativo com mais segurança!!!

    Olá pessoal, depois dessa última tragédia no RJ, estive pensando uma forma para evitarmos esse tipo de problema, na minha opinião seria uma boa ideia que toda a vez que o cliente colocasse um endereço que seja uma área de risco, que o aplicativo avise no ato da escolha do endereço, coloca pra piscar na tela uma mensagem do tipo: "ÁREA DE RISCO, CUIDADO"......dessa forma o WAZE estaria mais ainda se isentando de culpa por pessoas que param em endereços errados, embora eu não concorde que esse tipo de erro seja do aplicativo , até porque nesse caso ocorrido ,…

  10. Please include dangerous zones of sao paulo and rio in your maps. A woman was murdered two days ago after typing street instead of avenue

    Please include dangerous zones of the big brazilian cities in your maps. A woman was shot down in Niteroi after being misguided to a forbidden slum zone. Tks.

  11. Saving Lives Warning People in Brazil

    Hello Waze and Everyone! For the third time I heard a really sad story here in Brazil. First let me tell you: waze made a revolucion in how me and everyone moves around here. But the thing is that in Brazil we have a thing called favelas. Favelas are wood "homes" made by poor people because they dont have anywhere else to live. Favelas are very dangerou places, and once you get in you'll probably end up dead, just like how happened this weekend in Rio because a 70 year old couple end up going there via waze. They typed…

  14. Upgrade servers to support HTTP2/ SPDY - Faster load times

    Waze.com should switch on HTTP2/SPDY support.

    It provides faster page loads - Chrome supports it.

    Here is the very simple guide to get this going fast. https://bjornjohansen.no/enabling-spdy-nginx

    https://spdycheck.org/#www.waze.com - To see the results of spdy check on Waze.com

    chrome://net-internals/#spdy see what pages are loading over http2 in chrome. (currently none from waze.com)(most from maps.google.com)

    https://http2.akamai.com/demo - Easy Demo to see load speed example

    This is captured log of http2 traffic that maps.google.com was using, and also when it was swapped to earth view. http://puu.sh/kq2zl.png

    This is a simple and inevitable change that will help map editors with…

    About this project Nobody wants a parking ticket, or worse – finding out their car has been towed. The no park ticket app will ensure that never happens to you again, or anyone else. Why give your hard earned money to parking cops? No more! The app and database has been created and the domain purchased. The app lets you know the parking limits and street sweeping times in real time on your mobile phone or tablet.

  16. Edit Favorites

    Allow users to edit 'favorite' locations after adding them, so that users can update addresses or rename 'favorites'. That way, when friends move, for example, users can edit the 'favorite', instead of having to delete it and re-add it completely.

  20. Optar pelo Rodizio deveria ser mais pratico ativar ou não

    Se ativou com a placa o aviso de rota no dia de rodizio, se estiver num carro de amigo, não tem a opção escolher rota sem rodizio, já aconteceu comigo e só mudando a placa deu certo, coisa que também não é de fácil acesso para alterar.
