      • Reporting of road works to actually work

        I report the same lane closure every day and as a royal user I'm confused as to why I'm being ignored?? Would be great if reports actually worked

        • Click on someone else's report, either side of road, and say if it's not there.

          Be able to click on someone else's report, either side of road, and say if it's not there. For instance, police and vehicles on side of road.

          • Better setting of sound source

            When driving, I like to get the notifications and instructions on the phone speaker, but it always reverts to sound via the car.
            My phones are iPhone6 and X, and the car is BMW or Audi. It does not seem to make a difference between the cars or phones.

            • Why not believe me 1st time I report road closed? Why send me a 2nd time the same way?

              You guys really sucked today. Reported exact same road closure 4 days ago after being 20 mins late bc WAZE didn't know. Now today WAZE sends me same way again!!!!! You guys are jerks for not believing me 1st time. I told you it was RR XING construction project. Why not look it up after I report it 1st time so you know how long to leave closure in place??? I shouldn't have to deal w same closure I reported already to you a 2nd time.

              • Needs a little improvment

                Waze Team, Great product, I would like to add a couple of ideas that will add to this product. 1.as mentioned by a few users some lane guidance would be very beneficial. 2. With the highlighted route it makes it very difficult to see the RED traffic areas along your journey can this be highlighted a different way.

                Thank you

                • dont provide directions in areas that you don't have the need infrastructure. I will never use this app again. 4th Time on a 30min detour

                  If you don't have the infrastructure to successfully navigate and provide directions to a certain geographic location; don't fucking provide directions. This is the 4th time that waze directions have sent me on a thirty minute detour. The last time sent me into a dead end. No light. Neighborhood. Ran out of gas and had to call AAA. I'm holding back the urge to have my attorney contact your company for liquidated damages and potential harm.
                  I was a big fan of your app when I lived in la. But I will never use this app again. I will make…

                    • Ring road navigation - exit at junction

                      I'm a user of Waze in the United Kingdom.

                      When driving around major cities on ring roads (eg M25 around London), I need to know when to exit the ring road - not when to remain on it. But Waze will tell me to take the M25 for several junctions (maybe 25 miles), and remain on the M25 at a certain junction, and then - once I've passed that junction - to exit the M25 at a junction further on (maybe another 15 miles).

                      Much better, when entering the ring road, to be told to remain on the road until…

                        • Potholes on Highways

                          It likely does not make sense to use Potholes on Highways. Attempting to mark something like that, and much less see it when driving is quite unlikely on a busy road going more than 30 miles per hour.

                          I suspect it is being used for Geocaching or to mark bottlenecks. If so, you can create a Geocaching category, that can be turned on or off in the client, as I have little interest in this.

                          • New Car Model

                            Could you possible add a 1965 mustang? Yes, not many people have them but I feel like it's an iconic car that is worth of a position on the list. Thanks!

                            • More camera types - security & unknown

                              Sometimes you just don't know what type of traffic camera it is. Waze needs to add a camera type called "unknown". Also, monitoring and security cameras at intersections are becoming increasingly popular, especially in urban areas. I see these cameras go up and down in ways because people miss report them as stoplight or speed cameras, when in fact they are merely security and traffic monitoring cameras. Therefore, just have another category called, "security" and be done with it. Drivers want to know what those cameras are in the first place, so Waze can certainly help there and prevent further…

                              • Include alert for Highway Patrol, Police Stations, etc

                                Include audible alert for Highway Patrol, Police Stations, etc
                                Would be helpful knowing police might be in the area, and if you have an emergency, it would be nice to know where the closest station might be.

                                  • Low visibility

                                    I actually driving under the rain. Sometimes on some highways, the rain cause low visibility. I cant notify it cause there is just the fog option. Add an option « low visibility » like the traffic jam can help to decrease crashes and increase drivers’attention.

                                    • Why did Waze take me on a toll/HOV Road

                                      okay the people of Waze i live in Illinois and i think we have 3 or more tolls now i am in your ask a question category off my iPhone and i read that you guys don't have an option to enable or disable express landes or HOV lanes why is that? So when i go to Midway airport i see that there are 2 roads that lead to the tolls.
