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.
Need pedestrian option in waze
Aida Veiga commented
Waze is around the world. In Chile, South America you have many people entering the highways due to avoid walking to the pedestrian bridge or sometimes it is people who you can tell are homeless with mental disorder. So far, I have been using "animals" on the road when seeing a risky person walking throught the highways. We are part of the animal kingdom, but it is not specific but kind of help other drivers.

This would notify drivers that on the road there are people who don't have reflectors. Of course people are moving, so the icon also could show moving direction.

Please add pedestrian on new report hazard on shoulder.
I travel quite a bit and see pedestrians walking along on the interstate. I am concerned that a pedestrian could be hit and killed while walking on a busy iinterstate.
call 911 from mobile
as for highway patrol
There should be an pedestrian warning on the road
Just as you can report roadkill or debris on the road to be able to report a pedestrian on the road or on the shoulder could be helpful
When driving either on highways or roads there are times when you need to notify others about pedestrians walking on the side of the road. That is so dangerous and if you can't see them a notification would be helpful.
consider adding pedestrian walking report as an app. same as vehicle broke down on side of the road app

Definitely. In South Africa, pedestrians always jaywalk... it's commonplace to have people running across motorways.
In Washington DC the local DOT has put in place a large number of cameras that will issue tickets for: not coming to a complete stop at a stop sign and before the white stop line; not stopping for a pedestrian in a crosswalk; and for blocking an intersection. It would be nice to differentiate these types of cameras from red light and speed trap cameras. These three new types of cameras may not be prevalent across the Waze universe now, but they might be soon.
Pedestrians are a roadside hazard on interstates and small back roads with the current selections you can only use 'animals' to describe this hazard.
