While I completely agree with you and CBenson, the hundreds of thousands of Waze users out there that have no idea this forum exists apparently do not agree and will continue to report moving police as long as they are able.
The idea of adding a "Moving" option and then having the network ignore it is a stellar idea.


Or perhaps adding the word "Trap" to the existing report button will deter without adding a bunch of new coding to the app.

Hi, what was the problem here on Victoria Park?

Reporter on July 11, 2014
I think it was a robbery

Ok, what has that got to do with a map issue on Waze exactly?

More of a Police matter me thinks - although what the reporter thought waze was capable of is anyone's guess


A Jolly Driver so nice, it got posted twice. On consecutive pages.

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.

Network connection probably dropped out just before he got to the ball.

Looks like dead-end Uturn is enabled on that segment.

Good thing we can't disallow that anymore :lol:
