    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.

    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

    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.

    The problem with this suggestion is that hazard reporting is generally time sensitive. Reporting police or something on the road is generally only useful when the information can be displayed immediately on the map for other Wazers behind the reporter to see. Adding the hazards retrospectively significantly reduces the value. Police regularly move, traffic hazards resolve, and traffic jams are dynamic, etc.

    Though in small areas where there is no cell signal because it is blocked by builds or mountains, it might be useful. But it's a significant investment of coding time in what seems like small return. And an internet connection is required to use Waze.

    I’m not sure what country you’re representing, but did you know there’s different languages in WME and the app?

    If your country or language is missing from WME or the app, you can talk to the localising staff at Waze about adding your missing language. For example, English (Australia) was added to cater for some of the subtle differences in language between the default English, English US and English UK languages.

    If your language is already listed, you can talk to your country’s localiser volunteer who may be able to change "unpaved" to "poor roads" in that language. It would then appear as “poor roads” for everyone using that language in the WME and app. If you don’t know who this is, reach out to your country’s coordinator for help.

    Hope this helps!
