PLEASE STOP POSTING POLICE LOCATIONS! IT DOES NOT MAKE ME FEEL SAFE TO BE ON DUTY AND SEEING MYSELF POSTED AS A "POLICE TRAP" WHEN REALLY I AM BUSY HELPING SOMEONE WHO IS BROKEN DOWN AND NEEDS MY HELP, OR IF I'M TRYING TO MAKE THE ROAD SAFER!! I WANT TO GO HOME SAFELY TO MY FAMILY AND NOT BE SHOT OR RAN OVER BY SOMEONE WHO FOUND MY LOCATION ON WAZE! IF YOU REALLY NEED THE LOCATION OF POLICE, SO YOU CAN GO SLOW AROUND US, THEN SPEED UP AFTERWARD, THEN YOU SHOULDN'T BE DRIVING!!!!! SPEEDERS KILL OTHER PEOPLE AND THEMSELVES AND WE ARE HERE TO PREVENT CAR ACCIDENTS BY STOPPING YOU!

That inane position is well REFUTED below by Withhold Seth
Exactly to Gamma and a big screw you and your b.s. lies to police:
Cops barely ever even stop to help anymore. If you aren't a white chick standing by your car they're not stopping. The last 2 or 3 times I've been broken down I've watched multiple officers just roll right by.
Research has proven that doing even 80 or 90 is no less dangerous than 60 given proper road conditions.
Germany had the highest speed limits in the world, unlimited on many Autobahn sections and even when limited often 80 mph about.
Yet they have some of the lowest per capita accident and fatality rates.
If you want to see protecting and serving the public check out the model in Europe. Officers don't patrol by vehicle searching for trouble. They are trained in de-escalation tactics, and most of them hang at the station waiting for a crime to ACTUALLY serve. If they are in public at all they're on foot just walking around the city making sure people safe. The normal officers don't have to carry guns because they are actually trying to help people not correct revenue. When there's a real threat they get reinforcements who ARE weaponixed.
It leads to less officer deaths, less dead civilians, less assaults because some cop decided he saw a source of revenue and wanted to be John Wayne.
I wish more people could see how EVERYBODY else does it. Policing is dead wrong in the US.
NOBODY is rolling up on you to hurt you that wouldn't have already because they saw you on their own.
Wow slow driving is reckless? Half the time people consider "slow" driving to be the speed limit... Have we forgotten the definition of a limit? It's a speed determined to be the safe limit for the road.... For many reasons... Mostly people going to fast and crashing. When everyone drives above the speed limit collectively, yea, "slow" driving becomes unsafe. Never would I say slow driving IS reckless. While going 55 in a 65 isn't ideal... There is a right lane and a left lane for a reason and as long as slower traffic is in the right and PASSING traffic is in the left... (Again I say PASSING, not SOEEDING) There shouldn't be such frivolous issues on the road.
But YES for more real time police alerts... Would be extremely helpful and a bigger driver for the app.... Protect and serve, my ass. Why do you cops think just about everyone and anyone who isn't a cop or related to one feels the same way? If a feeling is mutual... Then it tends to be truth. I don't even need to give a specific example.

WAZE, PLEASE PROVIDE ▪MOAR▪ DETAILED INFORMATION TO COMMUTERS
WAZE NEEDS TO SHOW MOVING SHERIFFS, TRAVELLING POLICE, MOVING HIGHWAY PATROL TO INCREASE THE SAFETY OF THOSE THEY SERVE.

• UNEXPECTED BREAKING
• TRULY RECKLESS BEHAVIOR
• SLOWING WITHOUT BREAK LIGHTS
• RUBBER-NECKING CAUSED MASS DELAYS INCREASING RISK OF REAR-ENDINGS
SHERIFFS DRIVING BOTH SLOWER THAN THE HERD & SLOWER THAN OUTDATED POSTED LIMITS BENEFIT NO ONE, OBSTRUCT COMMERCE.
THESE FACETIOUS REQUESTS TO CENSOR MAP INFORMATION IS INANITY & UNAMERICAN. CURRENTLY SHERIFF ASSOCIATION IS THE WHINE FESTIVAL.
♢ CRIMINALS INTENT ON HARMING SHERIFFS WILL LISTEN TO POLICE RADIO TO FIND SHERIFF'S LOCATION.
♢♢ SHOULD WE BAN RADIO USE?
LESS INFORMATION OBVIOUSLY WILL NOT STOP CRIME. BETTER INFORMATION ALLOWS BETTER DECISIONS. PLEASE DON'T TREAT EVERYONE LIKE CRIMINALS. INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY? REMEMBER!
MORE RESTRICTIONS MAKES NO ONE SAFE. GUN LICENSING AND FIREARM RIGHT-SUPPRESSION UNDERMINE RIGHT TO LIFE FROM CONCEPTION TO NATURAL DEATH, AND DEMONSTRABLY INCREASES CRIME. EVERYONE HAS A RIGHT TO THE TRUTH.
THE ROAD IS LESS SAFE WITH ABSURD LIMITATIONS.
