Speed bumps warnings

I would like to suggest that WME could allow users to edit the map to indicate speed bumps warning to work like radars. This should be useful since in Brazil several speed bumps are not clearly marked or painted. There have been described too many occasions that we have been caught unexpectedly by an unmarked/unpainted speed bump during the night. This can be a life safer by avoiding the potential damage in our cars and, obviously, in our lives.

        I have a lowered car, and pot holes and speed bumps are my worst enemies. I literally have to hit 3mph and come in at an angle at every single speed bump. Especially those jagged ones that look like tire and rim killers.

        In West Africa this is also an important issue. The only way I see to mark them currently is "pot hole". So maybe Waze should make it hole/bump. Either way the driver should be warned to slow down for either hole or bump in the road.

        The speed bumps are there to save OTHER PEOPLE'S LIVES from your reckless driving!

        Excelente, lo mismo en Argentina, los reductores de velocidad están en el conurbano del gran buenos aires prácticamente en todas las calles y si el 10 % están bien señalizado creo que exagero. Gracias.

        justo visite esta parte de la pagina para sugerir lo mismo, como un ejemplo entre las capitales de El salvador y Guatemala hay 34 limitadores de velocidad y no estan señalizados en su mayoria.
        se pueden salvar vidas si en el mapa estuvieran identificados.
        gran idea

        Faz um tempo que queria sugerir isso, principalmente nas estradas, onde é mais perigoso "atropelar" um quebramolas, e justamente onde há menos sinalização!

        Problem in South Africa too where most speed bumps are either unpainted or have missing signage. It is especially important when your vehicle has a liw riad clearance or lie profile mag wheels which buckle easily.

        I agree with Braz, It can be usefull if would have a waze warn when we are reaching the speed bump. Especially here in Brazil that there aren't so many sign and the lights at night in most part of the roads are insufficient.

        Seguro seria muy util senalar donde estan los reductores de velocidad (topes, speed bumps, policias muertos, dead cops). Ya sea que el usuario los reporte y se queden de manera permanente. En la ciudad de mexico hay demasiados y no estan senalizados.
        Gracias

        Se existisse lombada na época de faraó, Moisés tinha tirado a turma antes da úmtima praga.
        Por isso seria de grande valia.
        Mas penso na anarquia de aviso de alarmes nas estradas nos feriados e penso que isso pode ser potencializado na forma de lombadas. Os wazers precisam considerar que excesso de avisos pode gerar supensões de privilégios.

        Para o nosso trânsito (Goiânia) seria mto bom, pois eu mesmo ja tive problemas com quebra molas sem sinalizaçao.

        sim do mesmo jeito que tem alerta para buracos deveria ter para lombadas. qual é pior lombadas ou buracos? voto sim para lombadas.

        Speed bumps are being declared (as a workaround) as potholes or similar road obstacles.

        Nonetheless, there is a need of doing this properly. Most countries in LATAM have these all over the place in major roads and in some cases, even highways.

        I totally agree on having this incorporated to the WME and to the app itself, to wazers can report directly from their phones.
