Durant l’été j’ai souvent rencontré des personnes a pieds sur le bas côté des autoroutes ou routes rapides. Très dangereux, mais impossible à signaler. Dommage. Je pense que cela devrait être ajouté.
@Michelle D. : I suggest to add an option to report pedestrians next road.

Can't read no option to translate
Please add an option to report pedestrians on the roadway. I see many in my weekly travels

Especially on the rural areas,

Often see things like fallen trees etc on the shoulder (but not the road) that are a serious hazard. Object on shoulder - similar to object on road - would be a beneficial addition to hazard reporting.

I am writing to you because I have just returned from living in the UK for 11 years and noticed a big problem of the streets in Romania - road markings, more exactly pedestrian crossings, which are so important.
I am now working as an uber driver in Bucharest, which involves driving approximately 300 km a day. Driving here is very chaotic to horrible, so I kinda miss Uk for this aspect.
Anyway, its been in the news as well that there are loads of pedestrian crossings where the road marking has faded and the government doesn’t do anything about it. And here we are, we get more news with people dying on the streets for not being noticed by the drivers who think they are on race tracks.
My suggestion is have a mandatory (for Romania) option to highlight approaching crossings and this will save lives. It would be better to do something to differentiate the normal crossings from the ones controlled by traffic lights as here almost all people wait for the green light while standing on the roadside which causes the approaching driver even more stress as he/she has to look for the pedestrian’s traffic light as well as doing all the other things they’re doing.
I hope someone will look into this and will get ahead of the shit manahement of this country.
More important to report pedestrians (e.g. litter crews) near highways than animals!!!
Il serait bien de pouvoir indiquer dans les dangers qu il y a un piétons qui marche sur la route pour avertir les utilisateurs afin qu il fasse attention.
"Hazard -> Shoulder -> Animals" sounds like a reasonable report type to me... ;)
This is really critical. Earlier this week, I was driving on I-5 in heavy fog and passed a person walking along the shoulder. Called 911, but there was no way to alert Wazers behind me. Really needs to be added!
Yup, Pedestrians walking on the sides of the highway or people riding bicycles on the edge of the road is very dangerous. A lot of them are hit by drivers in my island. Please add on the Hazard reports.
J'ai eu la surprise dernièrement de voir un piéton traverser le périphérique parisien. Heureusement le trafic était dense et ralenti mais je n'ai pas trouvé dans Waze de rubrique pour signaler cet inconscient sorti de nul part (pas de voiture en panne aux abords).

I am actually posting this suggestion that was created by the Robotics (FLL) team that I mentor. They are hoping to receive feedback or talk to someone about the feasibility of it. They are looking at a solution that utilizes Bluetooth Beacons at crosswalk locations that aren't at traffic lights. The beacon will broadcast a signal when a pedestrian pushes the button to cross the road at a designated crosswalk (button & beacon on post with crosswalk sign). They would like the app to be able to detect the beacon signal and provide a warning that there is a pedestrian at the crosswalk they are approaching. Utilizing the beacon would only alert those within the proximity of the crosswalk and only alert drivers when a pedestrian is actually present. The beacon allows the pedestrian to notify drivers rather than a driver needing to identify the pedestrian in the app for others.
it should be possible to report the presence of a pedestrian. A when we can report the presence of an animal 😂

People, (pedestrians,) walking around outside stalled cars on the highway are very common.
The closest option is animals on shoulder.
Pedestrians on shoulders and roads are more common than animals.
You could replace the animals icon with pedestrians.
Or add options for pedestrian on shoulder, and pedestrian on road.

I would like to suggest you add a "danger - pedestrians crossing" to the Hazards section.
This is where pedestrians cross the road which might not be a legal or expected crossing
Several times while driving on the road there’s been pedestrians on the road or shoulder but there’s no option other than animal or object. So I have no choices very to choose animal on the road or shoulder. Can you tell please add pedestrian on the app. No disrespect to anyone but an animal option is a living thing which would seem like a better choice than an object. Thanks

Bonjour, pourquoi ne pas ajouter une fonction qui informerait les aumobiliste qu’une moto roule dans leur direction et ou, un velo ou pieton est a proximité de votre vehicule. Votre application pourrait etre d’interet pour tous le monde. Un camion benne , chasse neige , semi remorque pourrait avoir un avertissement. Ca sauverait surement des vies.
Secure data from state/local authorities concerning the number/severity of accidents on various stretches of road, say in the past 1-2 years. Alert drivers when they enter such areas. It may help them be extra careful.
Indicate pedestrians and road works. Thank you
