New Report options

Please add following option for reporting:

Hazard -> Weather -> Ice On Road - REALLY important in my country

Hazard -> Weather -> Flooded Road - also REALLY important

Hazard -> On road -> Road Closed ahead - this could be abused, so should be discussed in function

Hazard -> On road -> Dangerous Curve - most are marked by road signs but driver could choose to get extra warning from Waze! for example it would really help when visibility is poor!!

Hazard -> On road -> Dangerous Intersection - maybe Black Point (a point where a lot of accidents happen, so driver should be extra careful)

Police -> Mobile speed cams - REALLY important because very often users junk up map by reporting mobile speed cams as SpeedCams witch stay there forever..

Police -> Mobile Speed Cams often seen here

Police -> Police often seen here - popular enforcement point

Camera -> Red Light and Speed combined camera

    Waze really let me down tonight. I could see the road was closed and the police were blocking the road but Waze insisted that I take that turn. I wanted to mark the road as closed but of course I wasn't on it yet. If I or other wazers could mark the closed streets correctly then perhaps waze wouldn't have left us drive around in circles.

    Adjustment for hazard reporting for the new UK "Smart Motorways"--Car stopped in refuge (rather than stopped off road).

    Add <hazzard> <on road> <ice/snow> before the US winter months, please!

    Totally agree with mobile speed cams. 99% of speed cams in Saudi Arabia are mobile ones, they usually are set up at the beginning of the day and the authorities take them off at the end of the day. Adding a new report option for mobile speed cams which can last for a minimum of 6 hours and an extra hour for everytime it gets thanked by a wazer wil make this app the most successful app in Saudi Arabia I guarantee you that.

    Many of the reports I need are in road when I need them on verge or hard shoulder or vice versa. These other comments and ideas are awesome too!.
    Can reporting all these things be easier by voice please. There are many options for you to implementbthis fairly easily

  • SeveriorumPatrem commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Consider adding an option to report service vehicles stopped on the road and/or shoulder - which is to mean any official vehicle other than law enforcement, which has its own category. Electric utilities, local government maintenance vehicles, fire/rescue, phone/cable vehicles, tow trucks, etc.

    I also support the idea of being able to toggle specific warnings on and off. Vehicle on shoulder reports, and red light cameras that I come across regularly and am well aware of, are tiresome.

    Also, I vote against trying to come up with "mobile" reports such as cyclists, pedestrians, rolling law enforcement, and things that are moving. There is no way to program anything to predict where these things will go in the next 30 seconds, making 100% of these reports inaccurate within 30 seconds. No thank you.

    Really need a way to report Animals in road. And known place where farm animals escape on a regular basis.

  • Miles commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Before adding anymore alerts fix the inability of a user to select which of your current alerts they want to hear.

    We need to have the option to turn off vehicle stopped on shoulder audio messages.

    Also to have the ability to report "Not there" and "Thumbs Up" using voice only while the hazard warning is active—it's currently impossible to report a temporary hazard gone without taking your eyes off the road.

    Would be nice to add Hazard -> Weather -> Heavy Rain as well. Think Monsoon style rains.

  • Raphael Simsek commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    I would also really like:
    Hazard -> On Road -> Lane blocked by construction, because currently to my knowledge it is not possible to post a lane closure at all, especially not due to construction

  • Bart Youngblood commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This needs to be tread on very lightly.

    Trapster grew to have dozens of report types, and over time, the map became hopelessly cluttered (even when it was moderated) because of it.

    As mentioned over and over again, there's no point to reporting moving police. As soon as the cop turns off the street in question, the report is useless.

  • Anne commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Very import in my country: Hazard -> Criminal area or robbery or heavy armed drug dealers. Many people have died in my country (Brazil) after following waze 's instructions without knowing that the path went through a slum/favela (extremely hazardous area / high risk of assault ).we need the option to warn about situations of violence in traffic. PLEEASE!

  • Rarebit commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    And while implementing extra report options... please also provide in a way to individually mute them (or per class)

    The more chatter, the more some people will get annoyed.... I drive each day about 120km to work and back and I can't count the number of "vehicles on shoulder" which don't really affect me (but I have no way right now to switch it off without switching off all).

  • Red Tuxford commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Need to be able to report this when well past the event. A different class of hazard - LIFE Saver!

    Water on road in heavy rain - when you drive through it the first time, the driver will keep the car safe first. Then only have time to report much after.

    Need to be able to designate specific lane too.

    ( would be good to automatically send these to the local road maintenance authority too.)
