Dangerous areas in Brazil
Unfortunately we have some problems about some dangerous areas... Another person got killed because of a bad route... http://g1.globo.com/rio-de-janeiro/noticia/2015/10/relembre-ataques-de-bandidos-do-rj-motoristas-e-passageiros-perdidos.html
I think waze could have an option to avoid these unsafe areas...
Did anyone try to contact your local Waze Map Editor community about this? Danger areas could be be marked in the map or streets there changed to "private" so that transit traffic will avoid these.
Pleeeeeease do that!

This feature is absolutely necessary in Brazil. People have already been killed driving in hazordous areas. A MUST HAVE feature in waze these days.

This is incredibly necessary. Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, for example have areas that are not navigable. Routing drivers through them could be problematic. On the past month I avoided a hazardous zone by reviewing the route. Making an option to "avoid counting through hazardous zones" would be great!.

That has happen also to me, I live in Colombia an there are some streets or areas that are too dangerous to drive in, you can get robbed or something worst, and of course sometimes I have to drive alone and I'm a woman so it's even worst :(
definitely, we could have 2 options.
- Avoid Dangerous areas (this is the same of avoid toll scenario)
- Flag as dangerous place temporarily - this is the same scenario when you flag speed camera or even weather conditions.
this will might not be useful for the rest of the world, but definitely for country as Brazil or any that has the same issues. Please consider implementing it ASAP

We had one more victim.
Fortunately, he didn't die.
I think the algoritm should avoid dangerous streets like it avoids heavy traffic routes.
The users could report the place as dangerous, like an alert.
Basta identificar e diferenciar os bairros das favelas. Tem software de GPS que faz isso, por o Waze não cópia? Ex: Favela Cidade de Deus, ao invés de cidade de Deus somente.
