    Potholes are availible in the uk version, but they don't seem to persist on the map for very long.

    To go on the parcel shelf to help identify yourself to other Wazers? What about a wazer car sticker?

    You could extend this argument to speed cameras too - speeding drivers may also cause accidents. But let's be fair, the police are usually in attendance because there is an incident, which may be a distraction to other drivers, or mean that there are increased numbers of pedestrians or other road users likely to be in a vulnerable position/state. In addition police cars often stop obstructing the highway, so there is almost certainly going to be a traffic issue too.

    In my opinion, the benefits of having this information outweigh the likelihood of it being abused and remember, whilst the data appears in realtime, it is not guaranteed to be 100% accurate, police cars may move, or remain undetected.

    Also, consider the psychology of drink-driving, the possibility of being caught by the police has already been discounted by the driver, I would not imagine they consider evasion to be a priority over getting to their destination via the shortest or least complex route.

    Waze is not designed to help drunk drivers it is designed to help communities. If you believe drink driving is a particular issue in your community, you should work together as a communtiy to address it.

    Now, add the ability to track bad/drunk drivers on Waze and you might be on to something.

    I always report them as "Hazard" -> "Hazard on Shoulder" -> "Animals" and sometimes add a comment to say they are human.

    You may be able to achieve this with the Llama app.

    Yes! If the location data is already public, why isn't it possible to search for (and/or track) a Wazer if you know their waze username - no need to reveal any personal data, the waze userid is independent.

    a very sensible and useful suggestion, a third tap of the my lane/other lane button should toggle both lanes

    I also second the Ice on road and flooded road options - this winter I have had many occasions to report those and have had to instead use Snow or Rain respectively then add a description or comment (not very safe)
