It would be great if School Zones were added.
I gave votes to the others. I do understand there are time management issues. This would be a huge plus.
We plan to work on putting School Zone alerts in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.

I work for an IT company who mainly supports schools. We're finding that more and more of the streets we need to drive down have restrictions on when you can drive. If you do not notice or are aware of the signage/times, you will incur a PCN, which is at employees' own cost.
Would it be possible to implement a warning or option to avoid these streets at such a time? A list of areas we're affected by are as follows:
PLEASE UPDATE WITH SCHOOL ZONES!!
So many times have I been driving and haven't noticed that the speed has changed and dropped to 40km/ph. This would be a huge help!!

We are a team of 3rd graders from Portland Oregon doing LEGO Robotics and our project is "Safer Kids! Safer Cities". We see that you don't have any school zone alerts in your navigation system. Would it be possible to alert drivers when they are in school zone? (similar to how you show hotels, restaurants, gas stations)?
We are at that time of year where school zones are active in the mornings and afternoons. Being able to identify school zones noting speeds and times of morning and afternoon as well as actual beginning and ending locations would be beneficial to all Wazers during their commutes. Also, having Waze route Wazers around school zones when possible would be an added benefit that could both speed up a commute and possible reduce congestion through school zones. Thoughts? Thanks for looking in to this. I look forward to hearing back. SpookRunner
I just wondered why the school zone and time features still don’t have on the app. This is very important and safety features for our kids and us. Let’s build it together. Also I read a lot of recommendations here about it.
School Zones should have times when the lower speed limit is active. This should also allow Waze to route around school zones if needed. When school is not in session the regular posted speed limit should be shown.
would love an option to avoid school zones. i’d prefer to go around rather than navigate distracted parents and packs of kids standing on the curbs waiting to cross the street.
In order to have a less stressful commute I would like to avoid school zones especially when school starts and let out.

This is 100% needed in the editor!
Add school zones to the map and highlight slow down
Not just the location but also the times
School zone speeds vary in my area, so leave an option to enter the posted speed, along with times.

Have locations of school zones mapped.
once it has been reported, start & end time, to have the map turn it on automatically with the speed of traffic (usually 15mph)

I agree since these cameras are being planned for these types of zones

This is a great idea, especially since here in Chicago they are talking about adding Cameras to catch speeders in school zones just like red light cameras.
