It would be great if the distance of the alerts was customizable - so that warnings could be provided earlier.
It would be great if the distance of the alerts was customizable - so that warnings could be provided earlier - maybe even by alert type so that constriuction alerts could be set at 20 miles - and police alerts at 1.

maybe set the distance dependant on the density of the roads / road speed limit / road type? For Freeways, leave at 1km, on Local Streets 100 m.
Peter Waine commented
Count down distance to speed limit change, e.g. "300m to 30mph limit"
Chris Harmon commented
One mile police report would be great
Jeff Nieusma commented
the still there and not there buttons are too close together and above each other. they should be at the bottom of the screen and next to each other to prevent finger bounce from hitting the wrong button.

Show distance to next stops (Fuel, Rest etc) on Highways/interstates on the main screen during routes.
(Similar to what Petal maps is doing) (and IO maps 15 Years ago)

Allow changing alert notification timing
Hunter Thompson commented
Add close proximity alert option (~500-200ft) for all Speed Cameras and Red Light Cameras. The current singular alert at 0.2 or 0.3 miles away is useless in an urban setting, where such distances can be entirely different neighborhoods or even boroughs and drivers should not take eyes off busy roads to view a navigation screen. Current alert is less beneficial than just stating changes in speed limits.
Wave was always great giving reminders that a speed camera is coming on the driving path. However it was changed. Now the app notification is 1/2 mile away abs only once. In New York that 1/2 can take some time to travel. So please return the notification to a closer usable distance and also allow more than only one time
Set Speed Camera alert always on regardless of current speed. This is needed on UK Smart Motorways where limits are set below the national speed limit.
Set mobile Police Speed Camera van alert distance to 1 or 2 miles.
Set speed camera or police visual Alert colour on Android Auto. The current flashing blob is not visible enough. Let us make it bright red to see it more clearly on the cars nav screen.
The main reason I use Waze is for the Speed Camera alerts but the lack of these options is making it very frustrating to use. Please add these options if possible.
to see if the vehicle on the side of the road or the patrol officer is there. Remember if we are driving and looking out for ourselves, and a notification voice says, Vehicle on side of the road in 1.2 miles. We begin to look for that. Dividing now our attention between driving and looking ahead to see if there is still a car on the side or patrol person. I feel myself often rushed and straining to see up the road. If there is a curve, or a semi in front of me I can't do anything until its too late. The warning is gone and I can't help. I would only hope you could add a couple more seconds on showing that STILL THERE / NOT THERE message. ty
Would like a way to determine the distance I am from a road hazard, police, construction or traffic delay. If there is a way to click on the appropriate icon to see exactly where the problem is I haven't been able to find how. I'm usually a very short distance before being warned which doesn't help much if there's a traffic delay & I might have been able to exit the highway beforehand. BUT I love waze.

Twice yesterday the map did not display no cops was anywhere and all the sudden I had the cops behind me two different times and different locations and it did not show up on the map or alert me
Just had Police ahead pop up and two buttons to click - one to say if they were still there, the other to say if they had gone - which is a great idea - but by the time we get to the place should have been, the buttons disappear and even pressing on the police symbol on the map doesn’t bring them back up. Can you delay the buttons displaying a bit longer or have the option to bring them back up please?
Ive been using waze for years now. I would suggest a feature that would allow you to move a alert you post back a distance. Sometimes by the time you see an object on the road and post it you are way past it. Maybe a move back 100 yards or 300 yards or 500 yards button.

"Next turns" has a countdown in distance (miles/km).
"Reports ahead" should have the same countdown in distance.
Would be very useful for CarPlay and for drivers who always take the same roads.
simplify and speed up input AND give realistic range of hazard location descriptions. On "Identify Hazard Location" page put a touch-selectable graphic to choose (right to left): far right edge (weeds), right shoulder (gravel), right edge of road (painted line), right lane, middle lane, left lane, left edge of road, left shoulder, far left edge, median. Don't tell me "vehicle on shoulder" and have me watching the RIGHT shoulder only to HIT some guy parked almost on the median...
Waze needs to enact this suggestion immediately.

At night we're usually tired and not always aware of the road conditions such as traffic lights.
Therefore I might be surprised by a traffic light and react too late if it turns red.
A vocal warning could help by warning me that a 100m, for example, there is a traffic light so that I can slow down a little and not be surprised if it turns out red.
Not relevant at all in cities, but helpful whenever there are none or few of them, making me readier for them.
I could choose the number of warnings, only 1 to make it less annoying, and also the distance before its location (100m, 200m...)
Default of course is "OFF"
In risk management severity goes along with probability: the severity of missing a red traffic light should trumps the low probability.
This feature can save lives.
Rather than *just* alert me .3 of a mile away, why not tell me "miles to next speed camera" - so I might know "on the current route, I've 10 miles to the next (known) speed camera - helpful!
In Turkey the Waze must improve routing and warning especially speed cameras in speed corridors,hidden police radar cars,red light cameras.Google Map works very well for avoiding congestion to offer a new road,but the Waze is very weak with this option.Awaiting new updates.
