  1. Edit Map Issues

    Allow users to edit map issues.
    When driving its illegal & hard to report specific details of issues along the route, so often I just choose hazard. However, I would like to be able to edit the info when I'm stopped, so it's easier for other drivers to understand the issue ie: car broken down, push bike illegally on highway, old tyre on road, elves in roadside bushes etc.
    I haven't yet figured out (or if you even can) how to do this.
    Thanks

  3. Deer hazard

    I see multiple deer along my interstate drive to work early in the mornings. I typically report as a hazard on the road but the next driver removes it because there is no hazard per se on the road. So this is why there's a need to draw attention and make drivers at least aware of deer in the area and to be watchful.

  4. Single file traffic lights

    Hi, the Single file traffic lights are used when the junction or around the intersection is under construction. Firstly, we should be able to report these traffic lights/junctions. Secondly, we should have an option to avoid these junctions. Thanks for your consideration. Safe journey

  6. Police reporting needs to be switched back

    The police reporting system needs to be switched back. Driving along the interstate, I frequently report police sitting on the opposite side of the road. I also report police sitting in the median checking for speeders both ways. The "other side" button needs to return.

    Thanks

  7. Persistence of Pothole Reports

    Potholes persist until repaired. Pothole reports should persist until consistent replies with “not there”. If the majority of people are confirming, then allow the pothole report to persist (edited from “until someone reports “not there”)

  8. Special preferences for Waze Volunteer Editors

    I suggest special preferences for Waze Volunteer Editors for both recognition of Volunteer Editors and also benefit to Waze. Sort of like Mood characters for Editors as a reward. But in this case it would be for the benefit of Waze operations and easier reports.

    1. Make it possible to place "Report Map Problem" first in the list since we are constantly scanning for map improvements.
    2. Make it possible to preload the Report contents with Editor information. Example, I like to prefix my notes with [Note: Sr-Navi-Gator report] and then follow with what ever I am reporting. This way other editors…

  9. The new system for reporting road closures is nearly useless!

    The new system for reporting road closures is nearly useless. I used to simply indicate a direction, now it asks for a lane and no direction. Consequently I have encountered many more unreported closures and I have difficulty reporting them because I've gone past them and can't say what is closed - it just asks for left, centre or right lane. Grrr! Is the Google takeover finally taking effect? Less sense, more convolution... I also note that to send in this suggestion, my Waze login isn't valid - Google login is required.

  10. Allow us to create customizable single press shortcut button for hazard reporting etc.

    Too many steps to press while driving to report hazard etc can be dangerous. Why not allow users to create a customizable single press shortcut button for reporting car on shoulder or object on road instead of multiple steps of pressing buttons to get to the final issue. ie. not needing to press Hazard and then having to search the type of hazard in the small phone screen while driving. A single shortcut would be much easier. The most commonly used report for me is car on shoulder so why not just allow me to create that single shortcut.

  12. Clickable alerts icons in the "Overview" button

    I think it can be better to have the possibility to click on the alert icons at the top of the screen (traffic, crash, hazard...) when we are on the "Overview" screen to see where the different alerts are.

  13. Please bring back animal hazard

    There used to be a button for nearby animals. This was very helpful living in an area with many deer, turkey, foxes running across roads. Now the only thing is a general “hazard” button which could mean anything, or map chat which isn’t safe to use while driving

  16. make alerts omnidirectional

    Alert users to incidents on both sides of the road when there is no divider on the road. On two lane highways voice alerts for police and accidents are directional. Meaning it only alerts you to reports that were made in the direction you are traveling. It should alert you to all reports on the road regardless of which direction you’re heading. Helpful for police and accidents when they could affect both lanes.

  17. Speed bumps and closed roads in CarPlay

    Currently we report speed bumps as potholes. If we could report them differently, nobody would expect a speed bump to disappear. And you could sell pothole information to local governments for pothole fixing planning.
    I love being able to report closed roads. But I can’t do it using CarPlay. That should be possible, otherwise the app will try to send us again through the same blocked road. Please fix this.

  18. Introduce voice commands to confirm or deny existing reports

    Confirming or denying an existing report throughout the journey could be risky and illegal to be done on the screen while driving, and this is why voice commands for this purpose should be introduced to be safe to reply on reports while driving, in the same way of creating reports using voice commands.

  19. Not automatically removing reports.

    I have made multiple lane closure, construction and more reports over the same area daily for weeks/months. They keep getting removed by waze after a few hours even though they are still there. Does it actually hurt anything to wait until someone selects not there instead of removing because no one selects still there? Construction rarely takes hours, more like weeks. Let the report stay until someone says its no longer there. I know some drivers that use waze and never report. I am getting to the point that I wont make these reports anymore its annoying. I know one…

  20. Preventing police removing themselves

    Is there a way to prevent police removing themselves. Maybe by detecting a stationary user or removing police reports multiple times in the same area or as soon as they're posted.
