Please stop the "watch out..." style of instruction as it is alarming and stresses the driver
Please stop the "watch out..." style of instruction as it is alarming and stresses the driver out for no reason. Most often the " pulled over vehicle" or the "police" car is on the opposing side of the highway so the alarm/increase in the pulse is for nothing. Instructions should be given in a matter of fact, calm voice. Waze/navigation is supposed to guide the driver safely to the final destination, not attach biased judgement to incidents or cars on the road. Thank you!

Reina, I fully support you. An experienced driver reacts to this kind of check more calmly, but for beginners behind the wheel, an extra stressful situation is useless. I know what I'm talking about. Since for a long time, having experienced, for example, an anxious state, I could not come to my senses. The licensed specialists of this platform https://us.calmerry.com/ studied my problem and provided me with professional support. I was offered online therapy sessions and learned self-therapy tools. As it turned out, for me it is more effective than traditional therapy. Now I calmly react to any situation in life.
Guys, I agree with you.
Anonymous has it. Waze should state the facts and not be emotive. "Watch out" suggests I'm not paying attention - it's almost an insult. Don't tell me how to drive, and I'll not tell you how to navigate...
Search for 'option warning off' and maybe also vote for that.
Completely agree. Driving should be dispassionate, and exclamations like this should be reserved for true emergencies. Simply state the information, without the "Watch out!" beforehand.
