This may sound like a stupid question, but are there many Wazers in Brazil or Slovakia? Waze can't give a correct eta if it doesn't have enough traffic data for those times.

At some point Waze may roll out the official 'Near you now' which gives the count of current Wazers, reports and jams in your metropolitan area. I believe that the is only active in the USA, in certain cities presently.

Waze doesn't seem to consider time of day/night when calculating ETAs.
It should take less time to get to your destination when driving off peak hours than during rush hours.
At least if you drive in a city like São Paulo, with its 19 millions inhabitants.
I have an example where it shows that something is strange with the calculated ETAs. I have chosen to show the same route at different time of day/night to show my point.
The route goes from the airport straight into the "heart" of São Paulo.

It's really unrealistic that it should take the same time driving this route during off peak hours and during rush hours!!
