Van option for routes
i dont know if this is already an option im unaware of but
could we have an option for van drivers ? as i was in london and waze kept bringing me to the thames tunnel which cant be accessed by vans. If this is not an option than could you please add more routes ? as i had to bring up google maps as waze kept bringing me to the tunnel even wehn i had gone quite further along.
and is there an option for reporting speed cameras ? as i found that quite a few were not showing on the m4 from london to bristol ?

Please add map routes for small vans within the M25. Small vans are not allowed to access the Rotherhithe tunnel or any of the Royal parks within the London area. The current private and taxi icons do not recognise these restrictions.

There are Van restrictions for the Parks like Richmond Park. Got to drive for a while before it stops trying to reroute me back to the same gate I'm not allowed to go in.
You could register the number plate for the trip (or default to account) which could then apply restrictions for that type of vehicle.
This could also be used for ULEZ and Congestion charge exemptions. I have on several occasions been forced into the congestion charge zone as every time I meander away from the zone, Waze has directed me back though another section and then I'm charged.

In UK , it’s a big time problem while setting a route for Vans ( Short wheel base) as they are size of XUV . And some tunnels are restricted by law for Vans . But Waze has no option to avoid such routes . I would strongly suggest to facilitate this option so that drivers don’t get stuck at the very last moment to re- route right in ur middle of very heavy traffic. There should be option to permanently avoid such tunnels and roads .

Hi there ,
I’d like to ask why in this app we can avoid a route ? I mean in London there is a tunnel that you can’t pass with a van and al the time I need to check if Waze select the route with this tunnel.
My suggestion is why in 2022 they can’t upgrade the app with for example:
- select a different kind of vehicle that you are driving and avoid route they you cannot pass there.
- the possibility to avoid certain part of way as a tunnel or bridge.
Please do something to improve the app I’m very disappointed.

I’ve been requesting the exact same thing. Rotherhithe tunnel always catches me out!!

Would help all van drivers get to destinations without searching for it, help us avoid heavy fines from going down restricted routes and also if you could add width restrictions plus more, or add HGVs and Vans to vehicle types.
