    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.

    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.

    Sounds more like YOU are outdated.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 Once cars become more connected, this will even be outdated, and cars will self-regulate their speeds based on geofencing, which will know what zone the car is in based on GPS, know the desired speed limits and be able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!

    You guys really need to learn more about how a HUD works, lol. Without additional purchases of hardware, this is impossible.

    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.

    I was about to post the same idea. Fortunately I found yours using the search feature.

    Or how about you don't use your real name so people can't see who you are? Regulate yourself if you're concerned about privacy.

    I thought Waze already used accelerometer data to accomplish this, but then everytime I enter a tunnel, it just pauses. This is easily corrected.

    In fact, many times there is no warning, especially if there are multiple reports in succession, only one will be reported, which requires the user to be distracted yet again by touching the symbol in order to give it a thumbs up, etc.
