Good question. The same thinking, "signal using headlamps" to warn other drivers also applied until recently in the US. That was struck down as an infringement of free speech. I am unsure how Canada law would apply in the case of Waze. Police would likely have to do an awful lot of work to figure out it was you: use Waze to get the name of the wazer, go through legal actions required to get your email address from Waze, go through legal actions required to get your real identity from your email address, etc. The amount of time and effort to catch someone who tagged the location of a speed trap just doesn't seem worth it. And if you're running Waze in anonymous mode and/or never sign in with a real account, they'd have to go through legal actions to get Waze to try to correlate to your smartphone device, and then go through your carrier to find out who you are. I'm not certain Waze can even associate an anonymous post with a device id, though.
