Caught this when checking a left turn allowed by Waze and reported wrong by a Wazer: Block your editions.... and always use your blinkers :lol:

Worried about privacy:
Here the "driver" who probably is sitting on his/her couch at home, states in spanshi "Borrar casa", that means "Delete house".
Since it´s an user reported error, and someone will fix it for sure, I include a pic and a permalink so everyone can ignore where this fellow lives. :D

The app should say "Trap" on the reporting screen.

In 9 months I have yet to thumb up a police report from other users. Its either a bad report or the cops here in CT are using Waze and getting smart.
I enthusiastically thumbs-upped a correctly placed Police Report one week ago, as I'm almost certain it saved me from a ticket on an open stretch of highway. The police car was stationary, in a position completely invisible to traffic in my direction, until it was too late.
And now, back to Jolly Drivers! I was certainly a lot happier after that experience. ;)


Any report, especially reports on high speed roads, I appreciate greatly for the warning and already thumb up. Saved my ass yesterday on 91 when someone lost a suitcase full of clothes. My passengers were extremely impressed that my "GPS" warned me of the clothes in the middle of the highway.

That user either forgot to turn Waze off or the inside of that house is all f***ed up.

I'm really hoping for the latter.

I'm surprised this driver didn't report "police" thinking they might get law enforcement involved.

Don't get me started on "Police" reports.
I send out dozens of "Not There" every time I'm on the road from the jolly drivers who have a cop in the next lane going the same direction.... and frequently it's the same Wazer reporting the same cop over and over.

Waze really needs a third category of "Police - Moving"... that automatically clears from the map after say 30 seconds to 2 minutes based on the speed limit of the road.
Knowing that a cop WAS there is not particularly helpful to a driver 5 miles behind... but it could be helpful to the guy a few seconds behind who happens to be hard on the gas.

The Live Map has it right... "Police Trap Hidden/Visible"
The app should say "Trap" on the reporting screen.

"it need to say. continue"

Apparently the person, not having reached their destination, could not determine they were not yet there.


:lol: Are they driving with their eyes closed waiting to slam on the brakes when it says "You have arrived!"

General error
Reported on: January 18, 2015

Reporter February 19, 2015 wrote:Hi,

You recently reported a General Error while on the A4050. Unfortunately Waze hasn't information to identify the problem.

Any additional information you could offer would be appreciated.

Thanks

Are you going to answer yourself, or can I close this report now?


Postscript: It was both! :lol:
Reporter April 06, 2015 wrote:That is embarassing :) I must have left this as a reminder to myself and then forgot to look...
Go ahead and close it please.

And yes - I too have fallen into this trap before. :)


In my defence (I was the reporter in question) a month is a long time. How am I expected to remember where I was or what I was doing after that amount of time....
