  1. Persistence of Pothole Reports

    Potholes persist until repaired. Pothole reports should persist until consistent replies with “not there”. If the majority of people are confirming, then allow the pothole report to persist (edited from “until someone reports “not there”)

  3. Inclusão de Quebra-molas como aviso perene.

    Creio que as lombadas ou quebra-molas deveriam ter uma opção de alerta de obstáculo perene. Existem muitos deles sem sinalização formal e a opção perene, assim como radares, evitaria muitos acidentes.

  4. CLOSED STREET REPORT IMPROVEMENT

    Hello,

    I would like to suggest an improvement of Waze driver interface. Specifically cleaning up and making it easier for the driver to report a street live street closure. When doing that, the map that pops out makes it very difficult to recognize which street we want to indicate that is closed. Cleaning this option up and adding street names would greatly improve ability to report it and warn other drivers.

    Thank you in advance

  5. Potholes are removed by bad actors

    I drive rideshare and diligently mark devastating potholes just for them to be removed moments later. There may be bad actors in high clearance vehicles with big tires removing these, or just people that don't see them from a different lane. It's likely many just want the notification off screen and mindlessly downvote. It needs to be more difficult to get rid of pothole reports, or allow us a setting to make recent reports more persistent regardless of downvotes.

  6. Make UR emails replyable

    Like right now there's a couple of reporters that reply to the emails instead of clicking on the links. Would it be possible to create a certain email wildcard that posts what they say in the email onto WME? I've seen this done with other businesses so I don't know why Waze can't do it. For the meantime at least add a banner at the top of the email body stating it's a no reply email and to use the links provided instead.

  8. Create a way to verbally make reports/or "still there/not there" reports, or verbally ask it to repeat the next direction

    Create a way to verbally make reports/or "still there/not there" reports, or verbally ask it to repeat the next direction. Totally hands free using Google, Bixby, Siri or whatever your phone uses. For example make it possible to say "hey Google, report on waze hazard on shoulder, then waze can either go through the list of hazards or just ask what kind and we say car stopped. Or even for us who use waze a lot, we basically know what the options are so allow us to say "hey Google/Siri (whatever), report on waze an object on roadway", hey Siri,…

  10. Choose lane when user want to send report about pot hole or object on road

    When we don't know which lane is the pot hole or object on road it's hard to manage it with driving. My suggestion is adding an option when we are reporting them we could choose the lane .

  11. alerts for police with specified time

    Change the alerting system to say “police reported 1.8 miles ahead 1 minute ago” or something along those lines. We need more information on where they are so I don’t have to search for them on the map and figure out how long ago it was.

  12. Report Button/Police Reporting

    When I report something the Report button on the bottom right turns to hearts for a second showing 5 points or whatever for reporting but the issue is that I can't quickly report another until that goes away which is particularly annoying when I'm trying to report police in the median who can knab both sides. What I use to do is file my side Police→Hidden/Visible in 2 secs then I'd quickly hit report again and hit Police→Other Side so that the two reports weren't too far off from each other on the map. So getting rid of the hearts…

  13. Pindrop for Hazard Report

    Pindrop sighting report. Everytime i sighted a hazard such as broke down vehicles, police, construction or etc on the road, as a rider, i needed to safely navigate myself through the situation before I can pull out my phone and report it, by then, I will be a distance away and the report will be inaccurate.

    If I could pin drop the location of the incident/hazard, it will be a lot more useful for road user.

    In country such as Singapore, both hands must be on steering wheel at all times. Also, it is an offence for driver to touch…

  14. Vehicle inspection - trucks / heavy vehicles

    Reporting police is a super useful feature. An easy report feature to add would be vehicle inspection for trucks.

  15. Multi Directional Alerts

    Multi-Directional Alerts
    Weather and animals on the shoulder should be Multi-Directional Alerts.
    This is true as the weather doesn't care what direction you're coming from.
    Also, animals on the shoulder could cross the road and come back on again from the other side.
    Please consider this suggestion.

  16. User Reporting - initial and more details

    Add an option to email reporting user for more details when creating the report. The long press on report currently gives options for Police, Hazard and Traffic. My suggestion is to add one for 'email me' where the user can provide full details when they are not driving. Navigating to the Report, finding the correct option, before finding the Later option is not safe when you driving.

    As editors, there are a lot of reports with minimal detail. Posting a request for the submitter to provide more details rarely gets a response.

  17. Ghost driver notification

    Waze Ghost Driver Notification Feature Idea
    Concept: Integrate a real-time ghost driver notification system into Waze to enhance driver safety and awareness.

    Functionality:

    User Reporting: Drivers can report suspected ghost drivers (vehicles traveling in the wrong direction) through the Waze app. This could involve:
    Selecting a dedicated button while driving in the opposite direction of traffic.
    Reporting through voice commands while using the app's navigation.
    Uploading dashcam footage directly to the app (optional).
    Data Verification and Alerts:
    Waze verifies user reports using multiple data points:
    Opposite direction of travel compared to map data.
    Corroborating reports from other users in the…

    Add MOBILE SPEED CAMERA to the list of reports! Not every speed camera is permanent.

    Also, your user forum for suggestions is a passive way to make your application better. Please add an actual feedback option on the help menu makes users actually feel like you are listening!

  20. mobile speed cameras

    The victorian government provides a list of locations for approved mobille speed cameras every month. it would be good if we could get alert at these locations across victoria. Such as "you are in a potential mobile speed camera zone" or even just say this road is approved for a mobile speed camera zone" just like entering an average speed zone check.
