  1. For reports such as police ahead, why not allow the not there or still there response go a bit past the report point.

    Quite often, for police reports etc we cannot say whether the incident is still there until we reach the report point and by then the incident confirmation has disappeared. How about allowing the answer past the report point - perhaps for a further half minute or so.

  2. Please keep Pothole alerts on for longer before removing them?

    Potholes don't go away...not quickly anyway. And drivers are tired of reporting them everyday and along the same routes we drive...

    Here's the problem - when there is no report, I think the problem has been resolved - only to suddenly be swerving around trying to save my suspension.

    Please review the pothole policy and how long the alerts stay on the map - at least 7-14 days, please?

  4. Don’t let stationary users perform status updates for police cars.

    Make it so that you need to be moving in order to click that a cop car is no longer there.

    Don’t let stationary users perform status updates regarding the fact that a police car is in a spot or not. Once you do this, cops will stop watching Waze to undo what drivers are reporting so that they do t get noticed.

    Please.

    We will trust the app 1000% more!!! Word will spread.

  5. Additional Crucial Alerts

    hi - 2 crucial alerts are missing on this app: 1st one is you have to add an emergency vehicle alert on the list - if there are fire trucks or ambulances for example on the side of the road like the police this would be helpful / 2nd one is to add an alert for utility maintenance trucks or emergency utility working vehicles on the side of the road - this alert would be crucial / Also an optional feature to add alerts for the other side of the road in the other direction just like police but added…

  6. “Still there” “not there” button

    Put the buttons BESIDE each other not stacked. Even as a passenger I have hit the “not there” button in error.

  7. Close proximity alert (~500ft) for all Speed Cameras and Red Light Cameras

    Add close proximity alert option (~500-200ft) for all Speed Cameras and Red Light Cameras. The current singular alert at 0.2 or 0.3 miles away is useless in an urban setting, where such distances can be entirely different neighborhoods or even boroughs and drivers should not take eyes off busy roads to view a navigation screen. Current alert is less beneficial than just stating changes in speed limits.

  8. Give an option to turn off the annoying road candy.

    Would be great if we could turn this useless feature off. Very annoying to have my music/podcast interrupted by a **** alert.

  9. Speed camera

    When driving over a section where the average speed is measured, a green bar is displayed to indicate how far the speed control will be performed. However, it does not indicate the average speed driven in this section. It should be shown what is the average speed on that stretch

  10. Photo enforced stop sign

    Please add a feature that alerts Wazers about photo-enforced stop signs. I got so many tickets in DC because I didn’t stop for long enough at a 6-way stop.

  12. Seeing other that need assistance

    I thought it would be helpful to have an Assitance request in Waze, but I wondered if there could be a feature instead of me requesting assistance for me if it could be for someone else. Also, there was a stretch of highway where I did see someone on the other side pulled over, trying to alert for assistance. I was wondering if that could be a future feature. By the time I got close to the off-ramp to drive the other way, it already was 30 minutes, and I decided to keep going because I was hopeful that maybe…

  13. On the paw patrol voice it'll be cool to hear. There's a car stopped on the side of the road, i wonder if Rocky has a part for the car.

    Other ideas, Zuma, when you get to your location, can say OK dive it, the beginning when you start, we gotta fly (skye) Green means go (Rocky).

  14. Blitzer melden

    Eine gute Idee wäre, wenn meine Blitzer die ich melde auch der Allgemeinheit angezeigt würden
    Fahre manchmal mehrmals am Tag an Panzerblitzern vorbei und bekomme sie nach Meldung nicht angezeigt

  15. Reminder about roll transponders

    We share an EZ pass between two cars, and sometimes have forgotten to switch it to the car we will drive on a route that has tolls. When we input a destination that requires tolls, how about if Waze were to ask “Do you gave your toll transponder with you?” It would be awesome. I bet this feature would be helpful to many people. Thank you.

    Adding Speedvan. Sometimes I drive and waze informs that the police are in front of me and there is sometimes a speedvan. Would be nice to have this option.

  17. weather

    I would like for you to include weather alerts from the National Weather Service as an automatic alert when we are driving toward an area with a weather warning and when an alert is issued for the area we are in. For example, if I am a few miles away from a tornado warning I would like to know about it before I get to that area so I could find a safe place until the warning is passed. We shouldn't need to depend on user-reported weather alerts; we also need the warnings from the National Weather Service.

  18. Hazard warning. Remove the option to say 'still there'. It is unecessary and distracts when looking to say 'not there or gone'

    Remove the option for 'still there' when hazard is flagged up. 'Gone' is the only option required!

  19. Push notifications for driving instructions

    Google maps does push notifications of next turn details even when app is in background. I need this in waze. I don’t always want waze filling my screen but want readable direction guidance.

    There is a new function in Waze. In the lower right corner are stars that are appearing with a "bling" sound while driving especially through cities. This is very distracting while driving. Can you please delete these stars and that sound in the app?
