have an alert when waze is directing you into a high crime area
have an audible alert or color code when waze is directing you into a high crime area. Often locals avoid those areas and they will therefore have less traffic. But not always a good idea to go into those areas especially at night.
Great thinking! We’ll share with the team; they’re always interested in new feature ideas.

כל פעם שוויז מחליט להעביר אותי דרך השטחים....
this only opens Waze up to discrimination lawsuits.
Je pense que cette idée pourrait également être mise en œuvre dans d'autres pays que la France car de plus en plus de données sont en 'open data'
Before Covid I had been traveling every other week and I used your App all the time and Love it...I travel around the midwest - Chicago, St, Louis, Memphis to name a few High Crime areas.
I have been taken many time in Bad areas by following you map. Even if I have to go into these area's it would be Awesome if you could warn people about High Crime areas by somehow using real time police crime stats. A warning signal, a change in screen color or the option to go round High Crime areas.
Think of all the Crime you could stop from people driving in Bad areas because they are following your map and all the people that would start using your app if they new it would take them on the safest route
Thanks for listening
Je travaille actuellement sur un algorithme pour définir des zones dangereuses à partir de donnes ouvertes et gratuites en France : https://www.data.gouv.fr/en/datasets/base-de-donnees-accidents-corporels-de-la-circulation/
Il serait intéressant de mettre en place des alertes de façon à ce que les conducteurs soient plus vigilants sur l'approche de ces zones.
Seria importante que nos permita alertar de RATEROS EN LA VIA ZONA DE PELIGRO INSEGURA ETC
This is highly subjective. What determines a "High crime rate area"? Just statistics? Your own personal bias/opinion? When do we adjust these "high crime rate areas"? Do we do this yearly, when crime rate statistics are released?
Or do you just want to mark areas that make you uneasy/scared? Unless Waze is instructing you to go down dark alleyways in southside Chicago, That's kind of what it seems like to me.

As a single mom whose kids play sports, we have to travel to areas we are unfamiliar with and end up traveling in areas where you don't want to stop at a light or stop sign in fear of your lives. Adding this as an option would be a great help and assist in our safety.
Create an Avatar for drivers to inform dangerous areas (violent) and estimulante its use.

במפות לא מופיע הקו הירוק המסמן את השטחים שישראל כבשה. עקב כך הנהגים לא מקבלים התראה על כך שהם ניכנסים לאזורים מסוכנים ואף לאזורים שבהם אסור להם לשהות. יש לפחות להוסיף בימון הקו הירוק ואף להוסיף התראות על מסלול מתוכנן הכולל נסיעה מחוץ לתחומי הקו הירוק.
I really hope the guys at waze see this. I've been taken through Alex waay too many times.
Single female driving through Alex at night... I should have had a big neon sign saying -'high Jack victim in waiting'
One risk of this would be that people could single out communities as dangerous based on personal bias
Minha sugestão é permitir que o próprio usuário marque as áreas que considere de risco está fundamental em determinada cidade como São Paulo ou Rio de Janeiro
Talvez o Waze considere não apropriado marcar áreas como perigosas por ser politicamente incorreto ou por receio de ações judiciais. No entanto é possível talvez seja possível permitirá usuário que determine ele mesmo as áreas que considere perigosa é de alguma forma por exemplo marcando áreas ou nomes

Around the globe, every place have some dangerous areas and will be great the option to avoid this in Waze.
To get this information, users can report incidents and with the system automatically flag as dangerous. Another possibility in integrate Waze with public services like https://www.addressreport.com and public statistics.
This could also work in Mexico!

hi , i live in South Africa , 2 days in a row now Waze has taken me through bad areas , Wednesday it tried to take me through the cape flats from the airport , and yesterday it decided to take me through Alexandra townships , probably 2 of the most violent places in south Africa , can you not give an option to avoid high crime areas ? based on statistics , or on the common knowledge of locals in that area
