Hate to remove hundreds or thousands of speed, red light, and dummy cameras that were misreported in the application (many from the exact location of a home where Wazers were obviously playing around)?
Imagine being routed 60 minutes out of the Waze because someone thought it was cute to close a road. No thanks.

I am sure you could aleviate potential Waze issues by allowing someone to designate a road is closed and having several people, or a location admin approve the report. Say, once 10 people agree, or a local area admin approve it, then it will be in effect for a particular time.
Having the ability to set roads as accessible during parts of the day are also a good idea. For example, certain HOV lanes are only accessible in a specific direction at particular times of day, and are permanent. These types of settings could easily have some sort of Waze admin approval and will fix the overal issue.
