Irrelevant. Waze is not "only" for speepcams either. The question is what is it's main function, not what it's called. Otherwise I start selling radar detection devices that can also open beer cans.

So, if waze *believes* there's a legal issue with its speedcam function, then that exactly same issue *would* exist with the Police function. They removed one, hurt the community, but did not remove the other one, e.g they didn't change a single thing about the legal issue they believe they attacked.

Even If waze remove police icon, users will reports pot holes or véhicule stopped on shoulder.

On others providers, it is called live alerts. No matters what the icon is or How it is labelled. Result is the same.

true, waze is not speed cams only.
but guess how many would use navs with better search function than waze then?!

before, i was searching for a place in google nav, then searched for the found adress in waze.
now, google improved the places app in gnav, and waze took the speed cams out.
guess what i'm gonna use from now on for navigation.
and i'm concernedni'm not the only one thinking like that.

really: for me, only speed cams make me stay with waze right now

Interesting thread.
People try to argue in a legalistic way to prove their point that speedcam warnings are allowed. Yet the only people who need to receive the warnings are those who are busy breaking the law at that moment. Note, sometimes that 'law-breaking' is not deliberate - the few speeding fines I have had were almost all due to me not paying attention to my speed, rather than choosing to speed.
The way some people argue the point, it's like they're defending their right to not be caught breaking the law. That's a right I don't believe we should have. Even 'accidental' speeding is still going faster than other road users expect, and can lead to accidents due to misjudging of speed by other drivers.

But in terms of 'demanding' that waze immediately reverse the decision, forget it. They will only do that when they're sure it's legally ok for them to do it, and not because some users want it now. I'm sure they would rather loose some users than risk loosing a court case.

BTW, how many of those who said they would leave, have actually left yet?
