    Sounds like you're talking about lane guidance arrows becoming more apparent inside the Waze app?

    It sounds like you're requesting timed cameras. Is that right?

    Many people do volunteer "24 hours" as you say, so the levels do need to be high.

    But try not to look at it like that. You have local knowledge that can improve the map in your area. You're not expected to do it all alone. Work with your local community who can lower locked roads down to your level for you to fix and earn edit points. Senior editors can also provide mentoring to help your editing skills develop.

    Find your local community on the forums and ask how you can help: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=19

    You can report a Map Issue at the site of the permanent/fixed camera, and provide a detailed description in the comment field. A volunteer map editor will need to know the exact location of the camera and the direction it faces.

    Details on how to report a map issue from within the app is here: https://support.google.com/waze/answer/6262574?hl=en&ref_topic=6262573

    This would be a complex UI change and would open the hazards reporting to abuse. Being able to report from your current location provides some integrity to the report. You can also use Google Assistant / voice controls within the Waze app to report hazards as you approach them.

    Are you talking about subscribing to segments, cities, map problems and user reports, etc within an area on WME?

    The problem with this is the quality mapping of cameras drops and is open to abuse. Instead, report a Map Issue at the site of the permanent/fixed camera, and provide a detailed description in the comment field. A volunteer map editor will need to know the exact location of the camera and the direction it faces.

    You can report speed traps and other mobile enforcement cameras and vehicles as police. It'll still capture people's attention :)

    Remember, just driving with the Waze app open helps improve the map for everyone (even if you're not in navigating mode).

    But also, traffic jams typically do show up in red. Have you tried out the live map? Might be a better way to see the traffic congestion and hazards you're looking for: https://www.waze.com/live-map

    The Waze map is powered by the community and relies on local knowledge, like yours, to keep it up to date. Have you considered becoming a local map editor? Connect with other members of the editing community to try and coordinate edits together. Sometimes, the road will be locked and you'll need help to fix things like speed limits. Find your local community here: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=19 and reach out to help fix a local area.

    The great thing about Waze is it is the community helping the community. You can report the closure in the app to help other drivers avoid the same closure. Details on how to report different hazards, including closures here: https://support.google.com/waze/answer/6262574

    Waze only lets you report closures on roads you're nearby in the app and usually only ahead of you. Next time, try reporting the closure earlier, if it is safe to do so.

    Can you share the location of this example? Head to https://www.waze.com/live-map, find the exact location, click share (or the link icon in the bottom right) and paste the hyperlink here so we can see where it is. Local volunteer editors might be able to improve the area to overcome this problem.

    Can I suggest you make a post on the Waze forums requesting assistance from one of the many volunteer map editors? If the business is listed incorrectly on Waze, they can move the business on the map and correct any details that are incorrect so that users and your customers have a better experience. You'll need to include the name of the business and the correct address. It might also be helpful to find the location on the Waze map (https://www.waze.com/live-map) and then "share" the link to the location for the editors to find it easily.

    You can find forums for most countries around the world here: https://www.waze.com/forum/viewforum.php?f=19

    Are you asking for the voice to be added to the Waze app, or as a readable language in the Waze Map Editor?

    The Waze Crisis team already keeps an eye out for disasters around the global and responds to them by closing roads, adding shelter pins to the map, adding evacuation zones to the map that warn users of danger, and much more.
