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.

In Nassau County NY, one of the most densely populated counties in the US, they have recently deployed variety of fixed and mobile speed cameras. The law permits one speed camera location to be operational in each school zone in the County. To make enforcement more $$ efficient, they have deployed a fleet of mobile speed vans that move from school zone to school zone each day. Waiting for map edits to list these temporary cameras is too slow. Waze needs a reporting option that will alert to one of these temporary speed cameras for the period 0600-1800 hours on the day reported. Nassau County is attempting to generate 35-60 million dollars per year with these cameras, and Waze is the only tool capable of combating this issue. The reporting option should alert based on proximity ( NY defines a school zone as roughly 1300 feet around a school) and should allow reporter to enter the reduced speed limit. The report should not be readily deletable unless deleted by multiple different Wazers to prevent removal by the County. To give an indication of how valuable this update would be, Nassau County had to refund almost 3 million dollars in fines generated during the first three weeks of the cameras operation due to insufficient signage. #schoolzone #mobilespeedcamera #nassaucounty

Have locations of school zones mapped.
Parks as well as they are constantly missed when driving in new areas.
Why isn't their a waze option to mark school zones? It would prevent speeding, tickets and danger to kids.
railroad crossings would be another useful safety enhancment
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.

Please add the ability to add school zones from your phone before the next school year in NA. Thanks
