  1. Fuel availability reports in Ukraine

    Hi there,

    Most likely, you already know that Ukraine has been attacked by Russia. Since then, fuel availability has been a very critical issue.

    The only way to figure out if the fuel is available is by going to the station. It's very risky, especially when you don't have a lot of fuel, to go through every station.

    I suggest creating a feature of reporting if fuel is missing or available, and potentially enabling people to sign up for push notifications when it becomes available. This would be a HUGE help to lots of people in our country.

  2. Ghost driver alert

    A new alert would be interesting to have to alert drivers on a specific route that a ghost driver is coming their way and that they should be cautious, maybe telling them to stay in a lane and to reduce their speed.

  3. Disable this feature (with Police exposing) for Ukraine immediately

    Dear Waze.
    My name is Mykhailo. and i'm a QA lead from Ukraine in a similar product as you.
    I've been using your app for years, which I'm thankful for.

    Today, in this dark age, our country use your app to get away from hot spots to west.
    Although , the feature that expose Police spots helps russian's separatists escape.
    PLEASE I'm begging you to disable (at least temporary) this feature (with Police exposing) for Ukraine immediately .

  4. Rain or heavy rain weather report?

    Hello waze team!

    It would be great if waze could make a new hazard weather report on "raining" or "heavy rain" on the road. I believe it was sort of missing in hazard>weather report section.

    Thank you for hearing me out.

    Keep up the good work waze team!

  5. Colour rings around reports

    Have colour rings around reported Hazzards on a timer. Eg it's red when first reported and stays red when the report "still there" button is pressed by re setting a timer. The ring turns blue after a set time until or unless the "not there" button is pressed and the report has been removed. This will let drivers know if the report is current and up to date or if it's an old report and has been ignored and not removed.

  6. Add ability to drag report blimp along route to improve accuracy

    Upon creation stage of reports, report location should appear as a blimp on the live map and pin should be drag-able to improve accuracy of desired location/point of interest.

  7. Quick Reports

    The addition of Quick Reporting using a long press on the report button is an improvement but just a slight improvement. This only reduces the number of clicks it takes to make a hazard, police, or traffic report by one. It still takes 4 clicks to report a vehicle stopped on the shoulder which is most likely the most used report while driving. It would be much better to have the long press with the option to choose vehicle stopped on the shoulder, police reported, or Object on road specifically as these are the most common reports while driving at…

  8. Reporting closures from further away

    Closures can currently only be reported if you're right next to the road. I can't always report it because I'm on a roundabout or having to redirect quickly so as not to cause traffic. However, I can pull over a road or two away to report it but the app doesn't allow this since I can only report it if I'm on or next to the closed road.
    I think this is an essential feature that needs to be added because sometimes there aren't diversion signs and I have to find my own way around it without waze because it'll…

  9. Fix Assistant Integration

    Hey, does your programming dept. have school credentials from ECPI instead of MIT? What's the hold up with fixing the location handshake between Waze and Google Assistant? You DO realize that OS 13 is being released by the end of the year. Let me guess, you're hoping that will fix the problem so your incompetence will fade into history! I've been back and forth with CS for MONTHS and have not heard a peep about this problem!

  10. Feature for reporting heavy rain/thunderstorm.

    Add a feature for reporting heavy rain/thunderstorm ahead as there is no function to report this reason now if there is a jam ahead due to these circumstances and people can only report fog or jail which is not suitable for describing the situation.

  12. Checking if the one who declared a radar false alarm is moving or not, because if not he's a cop

    If I just passed a radar and declared it, the cop can just mark it as false, but the cop (in most countries) has static location, so why not checking if the one who declared it as false is moving or not.

  14. Eliminate need for secondary app

    My husband has to track mileage for work. He uses a secondary/concurrent app to track mileage. If Waze would track the mileage for him, it would eliminate the time/attention he spends on this other app and would free up his phone.

  15. User Reporting - initial and more details

    Add an option to email reporting user for more details when creating the report. The long press on report currently gives options for Police, Hazard and Traffic. My suggestion is to add one for 'email me' where the user can provide full details when they are not driving. Navigating to the Report, finding the correct option, before finding the Later option is not safe when you driving.

    As editors, there are a lot of reports with minimal detail. Posting a request for the submitter to provide more details rarely gets a response.

  16. Stop blocking excessive reporting

    There are a huge number of pot holes in Sydney due to the floods and rainfall. I was reporting each and every one until I got flagged for excessive reporting noting my account would be blocked from reporting. If this is designed to be a community app, remove this feature blocking people so we can save damage to our vehicles and potentially save lives.

  18. Finger hold for icon placement

    When placing a hazard or police location on the map, currently you have to tap on the screen to bring up the choices, tap for police, tap again for their location and then tap again to place it on the map. Why not after the first tap, if you keep your finger on the screen, automatically show the options, slide your finger to the one you want, and then once your finger is released, the icon drops straight into the map.
    Simple and less steps to get the right icon on the map and also lessens the time concentrating on…
