More obnoxious speed limit warning
Sound when exceeding speed limit by set amount is a great option, but very easy to miss the warning. Instead of a short beep, Please add an option to select the sound, option to repeat sound until under set speed overage, and a flashing screen or other obnoxious ongoing visual warning. This would have saved me a ticket and be very beneficial as no other app does this.

There should be the ability to select your OWN warning sound (the "beep" is hardly noticeable), and a selectable repeat function, say 5, 10, 15, 20 seconds, so now we have a warning that is repeated:
ALSO, the speed limit circle should be resizable, as it is difficult to see the small icon when driving.
There is an app in Google Play "Maps Speed Limits" by Amphebia, which does all that, the problem is accuracy, which is not good, it depends on OpenStreetMaps.
SURELY Waze could incorporate something similar quite easily.

Same here! The overspeeding beep is rather frendly and occurs only once. Please change it to an annoying beep that keeps beeting as long as maximum speed is exceeded by set amount.

I need this! I keep speeding on a long street that has a lot of stop signs that doesn't look like a residential street at all because no houses face the street and there are multiple marked lanes - but it's 25mph and strictly enforced. Every stop sign is a fresh opportunity to forget the speed limit and my foot thinks I'm on a 35-45mph road. Waze only alerts me once when I first turn on this street. I need an option for it to bug me all the way down the street.
Download Sygic App. It has that option.
You can even set your own message
On many roads in France we get multiple voice information interrupting radio listening which is exasperating ! A short and configurable beep would be just great. No interest in voice message "you are leaving a danger zone. (On my last trip to Paris I had to close the link to the car speaker because Vanessa was continuously talking to me).
Another useful feature would be to implement repeating beep (sound and repeat rate configurable) when exceeding speed limit, especially in "danger zone".
Thanks a lot for the very nice App... I am convinced that this features would make it even more appreciable as it would make listening to radio again possible.

Graet idea ! And add a on/off button to activate this new feature. Let the user decide !
I agree. This area (speedometer) should be improved. Very important feature of Waze. Also my most used feature of Waze.
I’m the same situation.
I strongly agree that the single beep is very easy to miss. There should be an option for the beep to be continuous while over the speed limit.
