      Is that a responsibility of Waze? What would happen when because of one or the other error all Waze users worldwide would start automatically calling 911?

      Waze is not integrated enough with the car to be able to determine with 100% you had a crash.

      Waze is a GPS system, most new cars are equipped with emergency response systems that can with 100% accuracy report they had a crash. And even then they usually (right now) don't call 911 directly but they call the helpdesk of the car company.

              Seems to be unimplementable... Drive at light speed, get there very fast ;) ... how fast do you intend to drive without speed limits... 160km/hour, 200km/hour.

              Right now you have options time or distance... sometimes they will coincide, if they don't Waze can't choose for you. What do you want, the fastest or the shortest route. From your description I would say you want "fastest". However fastest will always take into account speed limits as else Waze doesn't know how fast you intend to drive.

                This seems like an excessive option: very useful for a small fraction of the user base but useless for 99.99% of the rest.

                    This is already built in. Go to Options/Display&map/Alerts on route and there switch off the warnings you don't want to receive.

                    It's a matter of rising to the top of ideas. If you look at the top list most of them or planned or in progress. This idea is almost in the right place.

                    @W.M. if you hear the message 10 times on your way to work and every time it's just a stopped car on the emergency lane of the highway (or even in a special maintenance area next to the highway), the 11th time you're not going to slow down either. Unless I have a problem I'm not driving on the emergency lane.
                    Personally I think people should have the option to switch it off, but I would have it on as default. If it really annoys people they can find the option to switch it off.

                    There are 2 sides to everything... for the comment below that it safes lives.... it could also take lives by distracting people too much. I've been driving some time with waze and in no way the "car stopped on shoulder" has ever helped me save lives. There are a lot of false positives, so i might not even belief it anymore, and "car stopped on shoulder" is also pretty fluid: a car may be there now, but it may not be there anymore in 10 minutes.

                    I would have it switched on by default, but if people don't want to hear it they should also be allowed to switch it off (if it's switched off I would also not allow people to report cars on shoulder).

                    For most people this is a near deal killer.

                          Already requested before a gazillion times.... actually 1027 requests by the time of this writing. Search for "apple car play" on this site and vote for the highest one you find. If all people who created an apple car play request would have voted on 1 request we would already have more than 3000 votes.

                                If you would do a democratic vote on it, most people would vote to keep it in Waze. Regardless whether some idiots could abuse it to drive drunk and get around police controls.

                                  Relax, it's already in for a year... go to settings of Waze... click on "Display & map", click on "Alerts on route"... and select the ones you don't want to see.

                                        If you mean you hang the phone on the windscreen with a clear view on the road ahead and you scan all license plates... not that easy too implement I think:
                                        - getting license plates in focus + extra cpu cycles for OCR.
                                        - world wide database of police plates, which police won't like that much
                                        - different kind of plates in different countries.
                                        - ...

                                          You're driving a car, not an airplane ;) ... what would an altitude indicator really buy you qua functionality: you can cut down on speed as the next kilometer is going down? So you would constantly look at Waze to see whether you can slow down?

                                          I think there are more important things still missing in Waze, just my 2c.
