Removal of speed cameras following legal issues

Post by
Hi guys,

We have just removed from the map all the speed cameras in Denmark, Switzerland and Germany due to it being illegal in these countries.

we are examining ways to make Waze compliant with French law as well

Thanks,

Shirli

How many posts do we have to write until you revoke the decision?
It's not okay to let the community do all the work and than delete this function without any discussion :( .
Waze has already stated their position and it's not based on community sentiment on this issue. They feel it is a legal problem and not subject to community outcry. Therefore, if they determine a reversion can be done legally/safely, I'm sure they will and will let us know. Until then, there's no point in them coming back to this thread to re-post what's already been posted.

We understand. But what many users on this thread don't understand is that Waze must come to this realization/understanding on their own. It's their company and while you and others may believe (know) it is foolish, what they have done, Waze has to make this decision based on legal advice from their legal team or consultants. If, after study and review, they determine cameras can be put back legally, they will. We just have to wait. Working with lawyers can take months just to figure out the simplest of things sometimes.

Actually what that says is that you can't have the phone in your hand (if Google is translating it correctly) even if you are using it as a navigation aid.
Deswegen sei jegliche Nutzung des Geräts untersagt, soweit das Mobiltelefon in der Hand gehalten werde, weil der Fahrzeugführer dann nicht beide Hände für die Fahraufgabe zur Verfügung habe.

Therefore, any use of the device is prohibited to the extent that the mobile phone will be held in the hand, because the driver will not have both hands on the driving task.
