If something happened to a driver and it was an accident, Waze should detect the drastic "Stop" of the driver and after that if in th next 5-10 second no movements are done, should pop up a message asking the driver if he was in an accident, if the driver doesn't answer in 20-25 second, the "Alert" should appear on the map alerting the near user of Waze. What do you think?
Great thinking! We’ll share with the team; they’re always interested in new feature ideas.
I don't think this idea works as you suggested. What if you come to a drastic stop, but avoided a crash and are now stuck in a traffic jam? Your report would go out falsely reporting an accident.
To reliably do this you'd need something like a g-force monitor, but do phones even have this? Even then, what if you have the Waze open and then drop the phone?
As others have said, calling emergency services should be the first priority.
In either case, I believe Waze would detect you weren't moving and automatically set a traffic jam on the map if you were incapacitated.

If you were involved in accident, I believe that you have more pressing immediate needs than respond to an alert on Waze.
Nice one ...!!!

Very good idea! Other small apps for android, to use with car have already this feature!
Cool! If someone can do this will be a huge step!
