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

you really think you'll have accidents because of speeding with 5km/h over?
no, but losing money...

in germany, there aren't that many waze users. now, just when i convinced my friends how great waze is, they take the speed cams out.

why would one use gmaps to find a location and go to waze, enter the adress and all that, when you can just stay in gnav?
it has waze's warnings and no speed cams just like waze.

what's the right to not be breaking the law?
if you really think you are right about that, then what would you say if speed cam warnings would be legal?
it's funny how people obey to the law or go what they think is the law.

in germany, it's allowed to use the high beam if nobody gets dazzled. but a lot of germans think, its only allowed outside the cities.
now, if there is a road in a city, where they need more light, the, choose to not use the high beam because it's illegal. but it's not. they do what they think is illegal just to be a good citizrn and obey.

in germany there was a discussion about making speed cam warning legal, so people know there the dangetous spots are. it'd be curious to know how the argumentation would change then... :-D

it's also illegal to not buckle up. imagine the car would refuse to start without the belt.
it's about being able to decide for yourself.

but it seems that we are just repeating the same thing over and over again.

is waze even aware that there are a few people waiting for a statement??

This is ridiculous.

well put ! that's exactly the point. after selling a company, that's actually worth all the work of so many volunteers, for nearly a billion bucks, how can you not even pay attention to what they want?

try to search google why there are no speed cams in wsze anymore: nothing.
just a link to the german waze tutorial explaining how to put speed cams on the map, saying this is not available any more, with a linknto this thread.

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,

Waze wird somit für mich mehr und mehr uninteressant.
Kann ich meinen Tablet-PC, den ich mir gerade für die ausschließliche Nutzung mit Waze besorgt habe, wieder zurückgeben... :( :( :(

Maybe Waze should crowdsource its legal support? Until then, the only way to get things done in Waze quick (to the better or to the worse) seems to be: forget uservoice, just send an order written in appropriate legaleeze.
