We're still considering the best way to deal with this issue.
We might have to make changes in the client in some countries, in order to comply with local laws.
We will inform you as soon as possible about any progress we make.

Do like in France. Don't warn about speed camera, but an extended area. Plus, add the speed limit in the popup

There are better ways, as I described: Do like before, just name it differently, by defining just the surveilled spot as an area ;)

I don't know the way the french government places speed cams, but in Germany, using an extended area in cities would result in a continuous warning.

I will stop using waze If it stays that way !

That means if you shut down speed Cam service the user Brillo will not longer use WAZE!

I have often read such wording in the forum. So please come up with a solution now so that the community can cool of. We have all worked hard and spend a lot of volunteer hours to improve WAZE. But you have to help us here. Such actions are counterproductive and causes users to start thinking about if it is not a waste of time!

Thanks, Stefan

That's exactly what I'm thinking right now. Should I keep updating the maps in my area? Should I consider switching to another application, if any?

Waze is great because it's a great driving helper. I like to know if there is a speed trap or police ahead, not because I want to drive too fast, but because it's so easy to drive at 51 kph instead of 50 and to loose 45€ + 1 driving licence point.

Wrong!

For example, we were three about 400 km on the road and I sat in the back seat. For me, it was definitely not illegal at this point!

Let the user on the device decide if he like to use it and make it like TOMTOM - he informes the user on the device that the use is illegal as driver.

As of today, the traffic cams are missing in the client... Time to decide between Waze together with blitzer.de-app or Garmin navigator (all-in-one, and even free for customers of Telekom Germany).

Best regards,

Detlev

Bad news are better than no news.

This is perfect marketing!
