Hi, why it´s illegal? It isn´t illegal to provide speedcams in the wazemap. It is illegal to use these Information on my device. I think many of us are old enough to decide if we use these information or not. The punishment became the user of the device and not you. Everybody can enable or disable this Information.

After 50,000 km of Waze-assisted driving, I will have to look for another app now. Without speed cam warnings, Waze is almost completely useless to me.
legal issues.....phhhhhwahh! You should have done some more research, because like this you will lose the majority of your German users in the mid-term.
What a waste of a truly brilliant Idea... :evil:

Is there any update yet on removing the speed camera locations in France? It is illegal to have a database of camera locations in France, and has been since January 2012, but travelling through France at the weekend I'm still being alerted to the physical locations.

Please either disable the camera alerts when in France, or remove the cameras completely, as I don't wish to fall foul of the law. (In France, the penalty is a fine of up to €1,500, confiscation of the device and possibly even confiscation of the car)

It is not true, you can have a speedcam database.

What is illegal is to warn or inform about the position of an equipment used to control infractions.

We (French community) asked waze for a legal solution before the law was voted.

Yesterday I received the following message on my waze client:

Pls remove the second point when you are sending this to users affected by the removal of the speed cams. Sounds a bit like mockery ;)

Besides, Waze might really have legal issues if they promise features which they deliberately choose not to deliver. In Germany, this is called "Vorsatz" (on purpose)and can to my best knowledge not be excempted by means of a disclaimer. There are even two sides affected: Waze's users as customers, and the competitors on the navigation market who don't advertise features they don't offer. ("Unlauterer Wettbewerb")

But, I am not a lawyer, so my legal concerns don't count much to Waze ;)

Best regards,

Detlev

That's exactly what I thought when I read the message from waze. I felt really kidding! :evil:
