Thanks for your feedback. At this time, this doesn't fit on our roadmap, but we'll keep it in mind for future product planning.

I noticed recently that on some routes (not sure what the criteria are), route numbers and exit numbers are represented pictorially as miniature road signs in the next-turn guidance at the top of the screen. DISLIKE! This makes the actual information on these miniature signs much smaller, and therefore much harder to read.
I'm all for placing these items in a predictable place on the screen (which the skeuomorphic treatment of exits accomplishes), but please, please, please don't use skeuomorphic signs for these reasons:
* The most important information becomes much smaller and much harder to read.
* The skeumorphs don't aid with recognition since the conventions used are not universally applied to road signs. As an example, my county doesn't use special signage for county roads - they have ordinary street signs that are the same for "Main Street" as for "CR 28". Similarly, exit numbering of the small, separate variety as represented in the skeumorph aren't used in my state (which I'm thankful for - my state puts the exit numbers on the sign itself in numbers as large as or larger than the letters for the name of the exit - a design cue you could apply here by reverting to plain text).
* It makes little to no difference to me as a driver whether a road is maintained by the state, the county, or by another locality, yet these distinctions without a difference are represented in the skeumorphs through different colors and shapes. These differences serve only to increase information overload, and do not help me with recognizing the correct turn or exit to take.
We plan to work on adding an alert for Speed Bumps in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.
