Hi everyone !
First of all, thanks to all developers and designers (and who it may concern) for providing such a great app. You really did great work !
Now to this thread : From my daily usage I know that as soon as I see a speedcam on Waze's map, I check my speed even if the cam is on the opposite side. But as soon as I passed the cam I readapt my speed
The statement with with those average speed sections (monitored by a plate reader when you enter and another one when you leave) is that you are absolutely not allowed to drive faster than allowed, because if you do so, you lose precious points on your driving license. The other statement is that there is no rule how long the sections are.
The last statement is that the french government puts them everywhere ...
So, my biggest wish to Waze would be : The possibility to declare on one point that there is a speed trap on one location (this is not new
) Then in a contextual interface, that it's an average speed trap which is linked to another plate reader located in another location. The interface would then wait to get the other location (provided by me).
Then, for other users, once the average-speed-section has been declared in Wazes database, one would be warned like a standard speed trap, but as soon as you enter the section a flashing speed sign (50 / 90 / 110 / 130 for France for example) would display with a tiny info "Maintain your speed for n kms/miles" (With "n" counting to the other plate-reader located at the end of the section)
Hope, this helps, and do not hesitate to contact me if you want me to to some screenshots ... if my request is feasible and some devs want to look into it.
