Yes of course. ;)
Give a permalink of the speed camera and explain what is the problem (speed, location, etc...)
A high level can fix the problem if you ask to him. ;)

Dear All
I'm driving with waze every day in Iran specially Tehran, I see many camera alerts but there is no cameras!
The problem is:
1. They are removed to other locations, for example some Tehran Highways are crowed enough that you can't speed even if you want :) so they moved the cameras to newly highways.
2. In the outside City highway or freeways also there is many cameras on waze which they are not physically, many of them are removed because they get out of order, or changed with SPECS Average Speed Cameras. Example freeway 79.
3. Some of the cameras never exits even before but approved & should be removed.
Example here there is a red light cam but there is not even Red light! : https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=row&lon=51.36282&lat=35.78106&layers=2017&zoom=7&cameras=6597505
- I reported this issue in live map but after awhile I received problem solved mail without any change :)
4. Some of speed cams approved are correct but the speed limit is not correct due to a mistake by whom approved or the limitation change in that highway.

I know the usual way in waze is by reporting "Not there" in waze client by waze.
but since the users in Iran are not much & the app is in English and some users are not very expert in English reports will not get enough to make the waze system remove them.

Many of them are locked at high rank so I can't touch them.
Is there any way to solve this issue?

Speed Cameras/Speed Traps

Postby gregetz » Thu Oct 16, 2014 6:37 pm

Dear users,

Speed cameras can be reported. Make sure to read these basic instructions first (see below)
In general, add only PERMANENT CAMERAS. Temporary and removable speed traps can be reported as "police" event. Every speed camera has to be approved by the editor. Also it is important to set the proper speed limit. Editors, please approve only the cameras, you are familiar with. Other unapproved cameras, will disappear from the client in about three weeks.

Thanks for your help!


Speed Cameras (in general)
Speed Cameras are devices which monitor traffic for vehicles exceeding a set maximum instantaneous speed or for exceeding a maximum average speed over a fixed distance. Detection may be facilitated with Radar or wire loops embedded in the road surface.
They can be permanently installed or mounted temporarily. Temporary deployments include on trailers, hidden within vehicles, mounted to marked police vehicles, and handheld units.

NOTE: Within Waze, the definition of a Speed Camera is limited to only permanent installations. See the Speed Cameras under Waze Camera Types section for details.

Speed Cameras
These permanently mounted cameras monitor for instantaneous violations of maximum speeds. Systems that monitor average speed over a set distance

NOTE: Temporary or portable Speed Camera installations should NEVER be reported in the client or added to the map. It takes from a few days to many weeks for a new camera to show up in the client application on people's phones. Therefore a movable camera will be long gone before anyone ever gets an alert about it. These non-permanent situations should be reported as a Police hazard for this reason.

Camera Placement

Cameras should be placed over the roadway they are monitoring. The exact location depends on the type of camera:
Speed Cameras should be placed at the location of the camera itself.
Red Light Cameras should be placed at the stop bar they are monitoring.
Also be sure to place the correct quantity of cameras:
If a Speed Camera monitors one direction of traffic, you need one camera.
If a Speed Camera monitors both directions of traffic, you need TWO cameras.

Shutter Direction
When the camera icon is selected in the Map Editor, the red dot should point in the direction of travel a car will pass the camera. It does not matter if the real-life camera will take a picture of the front of the offending vehicle.
For example, if a road runs east-west and the east bound lanes are monitored for speed, the red dot should be on the eastern side of the camera icon in the Map Editor. Be sure the angle of the red dot also matches the angle of the flow of monitored traffic.
Where a camera records a turn during a red signal, the monitored direction is the starting road even though the camera faces the road onto which you turn.
Adding Cameras
Cameras of all types can only be added to the map from the client application. You must be driving past the location of the camera installation (preferably on the correct road and in the correct direction) to issue this report.
Once you have submitted the camera report, it will appear on your client screen (and yours ONLY). Once that day's drives have been processed by the Waze servers, the camera will appear in the Map Editor where it can be approved. It must be approved for other drivers to be alerted of its presence.
Moving Cameras
If a reported camera is not in quite the right location, it can be moved within the Map Editor.
When you click on the camera icon, a circle appears; the camera can be moved anywhere within that circle. (After saving, you will be able to move the camera again within a re-centered circle.) Take care to ensure the red dot is facing in the proper direction after moving a camera.

Camera Speed

The Max Speed for a camera should be set to the speed limit for the road which the speed camera is monitoring in the common units for the jurisdiction as indicated in WME.
The Max Speed can also be set for a Red Light Camera if it monitors for speed limit violations as well as red light violation. Leave the max speed set to blank if speed is not monitored.
While a Red Light Camera will always give an alert in the client as a driver approaches, a Speed Camera will always show a pop-up alert, but will only generate an audible alert if the driver is exceeding the set Speed Limit as they approach the camera. The Max Speed is stored as a unitless number that is compared to the converted speed based on the Unit setting selected in the App. Thus users will get alerts at lower speeds if Km is selected than if Mile is selected. That is if the speed stored is 45, the app will generate an audible alert if travelling in excess of 45 km/h if Km is selected and will generate an audible alert if traveling in excess of 45 mph if Miles is selected.
The icon in the editor for a Speed Camera shows the number 30 but that does NOT have anything to do with the actual speed set for the camera.

Camera Approval

All cameras must be approved in the Map Editor in order to appear in the client application. Once approved, the map tiles must be updated for this change to propagate out to the users. However, the approval itself will not trigger the tile update, so make sure that some other edit to the nearby roads is made so that the tile will be sure to update.
The Editing Rank of the editor who approves the camera is used in determining how many reports of "Not There" from the client are required to remove a camera. See the Camera Removal, From the Client section below.
Camera Removal

From the Client
The following applies only to countries outside the United States and Canada. Within the United States and Canada, the "Not There" function in the app has no effect on cameras.
When a driver receives a camera alert there is a "Not There" button in the client. This button will not instantly remove the camera, but submits a "vote" that the camera should be removed.
Each time a Wazer uses the "Not There" button for a specific camera, a number of votes equal to that Wazer's current Editing Rank is submitted. Each time a Wazer passes the camera they can submit their votes. Votes are counted once the driving session during which the vote was cast is processed by the Waze servers.
NOTE: Wazers with an Editing Rank of zero (0) submit zero votes so their "Not There" reports are in effect ignored.
Once the number of votes submitted is equal to or exceeds the Editing Rank of the Wazer who approved the camera, the camera will be demoted to an un-approved camera. No change will be made in the client until Map Tiles are re-processed after the demotion and those updated tiles are made available to and downloaded by the client.
From the Map Editor an editor may delete the now-unapproved camera or it may be approved again.
NOTE: Each vote by each Wazer is counted, so a Wazer with a level 1 Editing Rank can demote a camera approved by a level 5 editor by reporting "Not There" every day for a week.
From the Editor
Cameras are "locked" to the Editor Level of the approving editor. An editor must be at least the same level as the approving editor to delete an approved camera. An unapproved camera does not have this restriction.
Cameras can be removed in the same manner as other map elements in the Editor -- select the camera and press the trash can icon in the menu bar. Once deleted, the map tiles must be updated for this change to propagate out to the users. However, the deletion itself will not trigger the tile update, so make sure that some other edit to the nearby roads is made so that the tile will be sure to update.
Be sure you have confirmed the camera is not present and if there are multiple cameras in the area, be sure you are deleting the correct one.
NOTE: Unapproved cameras appear in the editor for about three weeks and then are automatically discarded by the system. Therefore it is not necessary to spend time removing unapproved cameras from the map.
