We plan to work on marking the street with playing kids in the near future. In the meantime, make sure you’ve got the latest version of Waze for all the latest features.Priyanshu Lal shared this idea ·

Dear Waze Maps,
My friends and I have come across a problem. This problem is kids playing on a community road/street. This presents a risk to kids , drivers , and property. For example , a kid who is playing on the road could get injured by a car hitting him/her. The car could also swerve and hit another car , injuring the driver and/or car. Another possibility is for the car to hit property like : signs , decorations , houses , or light posts.
A person who is familiar with the road usually doesn't use Waze maps , but is familiar with the roads with kids playing and ones without. An unfamiliar person usually uses Waze maps and doesn’t know which roads kids play on and which roads kids don’t play on. This means unfamiliar people who use Waze maps are more likely to have an accident.
Since unfamiliar people use Waze maps , we propose to add a verbal and visual warning of kids at play. People can add warning for roads as they do with slow downs or objects on the road. Then other’s cars who come on the road will be warned by the verbal voice and a visual aid on the maps.
In conclusion , we propose a visual and verbal warning in the app Waze Maps for children at play. This can help prevent child, car, and property damage and/or injury. Thank you and have a nice day.
