    A simple undo button should do the trick that disappears after 10 secs would be great :)

    A fatigue reminder would be good. Something as simple as "You've been driving for x, it's time for a break."

    Hi all, 


    Thanks for this suggestion. We currently have other features which can account for this, like Roadshields and the towards option. 


    Editors should continue to avoid creating short segments where they aren't necessary, however this issue will be resolved by other future feature releases. 


    Many thanks, 

    Waze Communities Team

    This suggestion has been added to the team's backlog, and is currently waiting for assignment. Will update when we have an established ETA. 


    Thanks to all who have helped us with further info!

    I believe it's intentional to protect the privacy of other app users.

    What was wrong with the directions? And where were you driving from?

    Waze has already said bridge heights, etc. for heavy vehicles aren't currently on their road map :(

    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.

    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 :)
