  3. police

    Please reinstate the "Police on Other Side" feature. Reporting speed traps is the most useful reason to report police, and traffic moving in opposite direction will always be better suited to identify and report.

  4. Reporting closures from further away

    Closures can currently only be reported if you're right next to the road. I can't always report it because I'm on a roundabout or having to redirect quickly so as not to cause traffic. However, I can pull over a road or two away to report it but the app doesn't allow this since I can only report it if I'm on or next to the closed road.
    I think this is an essential feature that needs to be added because sometimes there aren't diversion signs and I have to find my own way around it without waze because it'll…

  5. Stop blocking excessive reporting

    There are a huge number of pot holes in Sydney due to the floods and rainfall. I was reporting each and every one until I got flagged for excessive reporting noting my account would be blocked from reporting. If this is designed to be a community app, remove this feature blocking people so we can save damage to our vehicles and potentially save lives.

  8. Rain or heavy rain weather report?

    Hello waze team!

    It would be great if waze could make a new hazard weather report on "raining" or "heavy rain" on the road. I believe it was sort of missing in hazard>weather report section.

    Thank you for hearing me out.

    Keep up the good work waze team!

  9. Object in roadway

    Waze needs to specify which lane to avoid when warning about objects in the road. Add a lane selection when reporting the object and then add that info to the warning. I need to know which lane is safe to drive in.

  11. Fuel availability reports in Ukraine

    Hi there,

    Most likely, you already know that Ukraine has been attacked by Russia. Since then, fuel availability has been a very critical issue.

    The only way to figure out if the fuel is available is by going to the station. It's very risky, especially when you don't have a lot of fuel, to go through every station.

    I suggest creating a feature of reporting if fuel is missing or available, and potentially enabling people to sign up for push notifications when it becomes available. This would be a HUGE help to lots of people in our country.

  12. Speed and mobile phone camera detection

    J think it would be a great idea to distinguish between different types of law enforcement, particularly in Australia. At the moment, mobile speed cameras, police and mobile phone detection cameras are all reported as “police”. To better improve this process, I think it would be a good idea to have a “law enforcement” report option (replaces current “police”, then the options such as “mobile speed camera”, “police”, “phone detection”. The “phone detection” and “mobile speed camera” should also have the option to report on the opposite side of the road like the “police” option currently has.

  14. Ghost driver alert

    A new alert would be interesting to have to alert drivers on a specific route that a ghost driver is coming their way and that they should be cautious, maybe telling them to stay in a lane and to reduce their speed.

  15. Add option allowing your URs to be posted under your username (not anonymoulsy)

    It has been said numerous time that due to private data protections, URs are always posted anonymously.

    However, many editors use the UR system as a mean to "take notes" of problems during a trip, and then will correct deal with those UR when on WME after the trip.

    However, those URs are always marked as anonymous on WME and other editors often start to reply those UR not knowing that those were done by other fellow editors. This leads to a lost of time, since those UR should be considered as "already watched by another editor".

    The proposition is…

  16. Send Automatic Reply for when people reply to UR emails

    I thought of this idea where, if a user replies to a UR email, they will automatically get an email back (like an Out-of-Office reply) saying, 'Message not Received, you must click the link in the email to reply to this report'.

    This would hopefully reduce the amount of URs with no replies, and isn't as hard to implement as other ideas.

    Thanks!

  19. Too many reports warnings are excessive

    The message popping up to say you have made too many reports is using criteria that are far too strict. During a 15 mile drive recently, I made 4 unrelated reports (heavy traffic, car stopped, flooding and a dangerous pothole) and got flagged for it. I couldn't care less about points or rankings, I just want to make sure other road users are aware of hazards!

  20. Wildlife Near Road Alert

    We live out in the middle of nowhere OH and often see deer and other living wildlife near the road. Would love to see a button in the hazards to report "Wildlife Near Road." Think this would be helpful to many others!!!
