I would like to suggest some changes which will help to improve the accuracy of reports of police activity/presence, adding the option of notifying users which lane/side of the road is being affected when submitting reports and lastly reports should be able to be edited and submitted hands free. I feel that the implementation of these few changes would help to increase driver safety while also reducing the amount of false/inaccurate reports being submitted to Waze users.
Implementing the option to notify users as to which lane/side of the road or even if both sides are affected when editing or submitting a report regardless of which side of the road you are travelling on. Being able to edit or report information on the opposite side of the road would be very beneficial in making sure that the information is still relevant or if it needs to be updated, which would be a significant advantage to users in rural areas that don’t have as many active users as metro areas.
When reporting police there needs more detailed options available to choose from when submitting the report such as:
- Driving (which side of the road or travelling in which direction)
- Mobile Speed Camera/Speed Traps
- Unmarked Car (hidden/visible/driving)
- RBT (random breath test only)
- RBT/MDT (random breath test and mobile drug test)
Adding more options would help to accurately report police activity while reduce any confusion around if they are actually still there or if the report was just because they were seen driving past. Although if having more detailed reporting options isn’t possible then another alternative that would help to improve the accuracy would be to allow users to add a comment, which would help to inform users of the type of police movement.
Mobile Phone Detection Cameras are now active in NSW so it would be great to have the option of being able to submit reports verbally instead.
Waze > Report > Police > Driving > Opposite Side of the Road
Enabling verbal commands would help to keep Wazers safe while still being to use the apps features which unless you are a passenger you wouldn’t be able to report, like or clear any reports without putting yourself, passengers and other road users at risk along with the risk of getting a fine
