        They actually do do this, only it doesn't seem to work all the time, and the constraints on distance are a bit too short, it should be expanded a bit more, but far less than you are suggesting.

            It would be, but Waze cannot gather accurate enough data to know which lane a car is in at this time.

              The GPS is not accurate enough to know which lane you are in, and they would have to collect a significant amount of GPS data on the roads themselves in order to be able to know which lane a car is in.

                HOV ONLY, more specifically. Waze can not tell which lane a car is in, yet, due to the inaccuracy of the GPS it uses. Soon this will be possible, but TRUCK ROUTES, yes, in the Washington DC area, this is of extreme importance. Many routes in and out of DC limit the use of trucks, and Waze does not currently support this feature, but it should.

                  This would simply require users to be able to create vehicle profiles, which would support numerous functions including mileage logging based on vehicle used.

                    This is the only sensical post about HOV routes. People with a lack of knowledge about the current accuracy of the GPS system don't understand that Waze isn't going to be accurate enough to know exactly which lane they are in, although that accuracy is very near in our future.
                    The real issue is when certain roadways are HOV ONLY at certain times of the day, like Rt. 66 East into Washington DC. The entire numerous mile section of road, not just a single lane is HOV at certain hours, yet Waze is consistent at trying to shuttle me through there without providing the option to avoid it without me rerouting myself, which it should by now be programmed to know.

                      THANK YOU, someone else had the same idea. I can't stand when I don't get the option between the regular toll road and the Express lane toll road. Such a nuisance.

                        Sounds more like YOU are outdated. I don't even know of a major carrier that doesn't have a cheap, unlimited texting plan. Why would anyone pay for texts, anymore? I mean, 2016, bro.

                          I also agree with Gamma, the patrol officer who commented on how "speeding is infrequently reckless". Even speeding at what is consider "reckless by speed" is hardly reckless. Speeding in statistics is hardly even worth mentioning as a cause of accident, let alone death. Also, if government would simply set a maximum Federal speed limit for all states not-to-exceed, and require car manufacturers to govern all vehicles sold in the US at that limit (perhaps about 90 mph, or so) then they would do far better than all of the needless patrols and ticketing for profit. Once cars become more connected, this will even be outdated, and cars will self-regulate their speeds based on geofencing, which will know what zone the car is in based on GPS, know the desired speed limits and be able to govern on-the-fly.

                          That's a great idea to have as an Advanced Option. Show the locations that police are often reported based on historical data. Genius. DO IT!

                                  Agreed, while the other commenter thinks that bicycles would create a problem, he doesn't seem to understand it is merely an ESTIMATE, the way that Waze currently creates an ESTIMATE for your arrival. The only difference is using years of historical data that would create a nearly flawless estimate of your true arrival time and which route will be best at any time of day. This is entirely within the realm of possibility and would vastly improve transportation. Another thing is to take the data that is pouring in of current users and chosen routes to add yet another layer of accuracy to the prediction based on how many known vehicles are using the routes and then extrapolating that with a margin of error for unknown vehicles, which really takes us back to the historical data portion of it.

                                    It should also include mileage data. Whenever a user starts an account or at any time they wish to input their current mileage, it could log mileage, as well. Each user would, of course, need to be able to create vehicle profiles that they could select from at the beginning of a trip.

                                      If this isn't already possible, it should be. You should be able to log onto a web page and view your trips and position/time markers (raw data) like with Google Locations services. The issue with the Google Location services mapping is it is often inaccurate and draws straight lines or even misses important data. Improvement is needed, and Waze could take this over.
