Many governments have been caught reducing the length of yellow at intersections with cameras, so I like to know about them just to avoid getting fleeced by one of these things when I would probably be able to safely go through the yellow at another light.

I agree that Waze needs to incorporate a way to suppress static alerts after having driven by them so many times in a given period of time.

I drive the same route every day. Twice a day I get the red light camera popup. Ok; enough already! I know it's there! It was there yesterday, will be there tomorrow, and next week, and next year!


+1!

I'd suggest two things:

1. make it configurable the visual popup of radars so people won't be bothered with the popups unless people wants to contribute to vote +1 or -1
2. revert the popup back to the old version with the "not there" and "there" or whatever the ok button was, so people can vote either to remove it or to confirm it. As is today, and as reported multiple times, people click on the "not there" by mistake trying to click on the tiny "x" on the corner.

Then move the camera to the next segment going straight, after the node turning left or right. The camera will still be visible, and will most probably still be warned, but if so it's a bug that will eventually be solved any century now. (no idea the status as we have no red lights and just some 30 cameras in Portugal, so it's hard to debug it properly)

+1 again

Considering that "speed cams" are already on the list of "Show on map" suppressible elements, why not include red light cams as well?

This is one of my few pet peeves with this app. It's bizarre and counter-intuitive that you can hide dynamic occurrences (traffic jams, hazards, etc.) but not static events (such as a red light camera), which never change.

Shouldn't things that never change on a route be more easily suppressible than things that may change all the time?

What if the red light warning only occurs for the first x times you pass the intersection. I know the intersections I past through this morning and had a camera this morning... will have them this evening.

Also, if your route is taking you left thru the intersection and the red light camera is for the straight lane traffic only, I am not sure I need to know.

+infinity!

God I am glad I'm not alone! This makes NO sense to me on any level. Why can we not disable these popups. God help anyone that approaches a right turn with a red light camera near by. It blocked a good portion on the screen. And it's illegal to run a red light anyways. So honestly, it's unnecessary. I'm all for the indicators on the map, but kill the popups or give us the option.! Please.

I think it's worse the first time as you may not know the route and may miss the turn because of it.

I also don't think I need to know it's "more illegal" to run this particular red light. Life doesn't work that way.... Well, it shouldn't.
