Awards for People for Driving the Speed Limit
Many people drive above the speed limit and we've all got a speeding ticket at one time, but wouldn't it be cool to get rewarded when we do drive at or near the speed limit? Maybe waze can create a feature to award points based on how much time or mileage that we are compliant to the posted speed limit. And maybe even leverage companies like Starbucks to award good drivers with a coffee! It is especially critical that drivers obey the limit on residential streets, and maybe this could motivate and educate drivers to do so!!
Für das Einhalten von Geschwindigkeitsbeschränkungen, etc...
Punkte sammeln, die dann bei Restaurants, im Handel eingelöst werden können.
Afin que les conducteurs respectent plus les limitations de vitesse, j'ai pensé a donner des badges de bonnes conduite pour ceux qui respectent les limitations.
Sans sanctionner ceux qui ne respectent pas, mais cela permettrait de faire une sorte de " jeu " a celui qui conduira le mieux !
Providing a score for careful driving.
When I reach my destination - the app calculates my score, whether I am compliant with all traffic rules.
Have I not passed the permitted speed?
Did I stop at a stop sign?
The app. remembers the points from the previous trip and I actually save points and can use them for comparison with friends or maybe even in future insurance companies.
This app encourages me to follow traffic rules and prevent road accidents.

It would be a good incentive for people to use Waze more often for direction purposes if there was some type of reward system for certain amounts of mileage. Maybe the reward system could even expand out into staying under the speed limit, not missing turns, etc. The rewards could build up for exchange into coupons of companies that support Waze such as certain restaurants and hotels. It would Be a great idea to tap into that part of the brain that likes reaching achievements. Video game achievements could be a good guide but add on a point system along with coupons.

This is what I wanted to post as idea! But it came to your mind years before :)
Some sort of gamification can be applied to reward people who are driving with respect to speed limits.
Either you are still driving. If you feel it is your ethical duty to punish speeders, then why not just award them less points.
Why did you leave out the people going under the speed limit by X amount? That is also illegal.
Also. Waze always says I am going a different speed than what I am doing, so I could be docked points even though I am not speeding.

A cool feature on Waze is earning points for completing certain tasks or collecting things. Why not have more opportunities to earn more, or even lose points? My idea is to gain points for driving the speed limit for a certain amount of time (like driving the correct speed limit earns you a point for every mile or every minute you drive). To counter this, you would also LOSE points for driving over the speed limit (like every second you are over the speed limit, you lose a point). The point of my idea was to integrate a more fun, and safer approach when it comes to driving and using this app. Drivers will now have an incentive for obeying the speed laws by earning points for being safe commuters. This would also make driving a little safer since people will be monitoring their speed so they don't lose points. I believe this feature would be a creative, and fun addition to an already amazing app.
You should get negative points for driving too slow below the limit.
Well, no, because that will make some fools try to drive at the limit even in bad weather, when the legal speed is unsafe. (And then not legal anyway....)
Lors d'un trajet, les erreurs de conduites sont enregistrées (dépassement limitation de vitesse, sens interdit...)
Lorsque le conducteur effectue un trajet, sans erreurs, sa bonne conduit est récompensée, en nombre de points par exemple. Si la conduite contient quelques erreurs, le nombre de points gagnés est plus petit. Atteint un nombre limite d'erreurs, aucun point n'est gagné.
Les points peuvent être convertibles ensuite en réels gains (à partir de 1000 points par exemple, on peut les convertir en euros, ou bon cadeaux)
Ceci permettra aux utilisateurs de respecter le limitation de vitesse, première cause de décès. Cela peut aussi convaincre de nouveaux utilisateurs à utiliser l'application.
Waze points should be earned when you drive within the speed limits. You should get more points for respecting the laws. Safety first
Points for staying at the speed limit in residential neighborhoods and penalties for speeding in residential neighborhoods.
New feature and business suggestion.
Everytime we use waze, we gain points and compete with friends. Eventhough this doesn't work straight forward like a competition, Waze could use points giving to try and make the traffic experience better and safer for everyone, and even, could use these reports as a business partnership with insurance companies, to improve discounts for better drivers.
Like, let's say I will travel for 200km. I could be gaining the points as usual, but also, running for points 200 extra points. How?
The screen would show a very discreet *led* with green and red lights.
A time counter would check how long I was under the speed limit and how long I was above the speed limit. I would be rewarded proportionally with a number of point equivalent to the driving distance of my trip.
Example *(in my 200km trip), during my trip, I drove 70% of the distance below speed limit and the remaining distance, above the speed limit. For my effort on trying to keep the traffic safe, I get extra 70% of 200 points. I get a bonus 140 points for my behavior.
This could also be used as a partnership with insurance companies. Let's say, users could have the option to deliver or not his trip reports to some insurance company. If the driver always have good behavior, or most of the time, he/she could have his behavior reflected in discount on the insurance. Nowadays the insurance companies already give discounts when the driver has no tickets. But this would be a much more precise and fair system, since most of the people drive slow on speed traps, but not all the time.
Well, I am not sure I made myself clear, but I needed to say this idea has been bothering me for a while.
I think this is good idea because:
- traffic safety *(good for everyone)
- money saving on insurance *(good for the wazers)
- profittable partnerships *(good for waze)
