Having the same problem in our area. Speed traps all over the place and showing in the app. Been deleting where I can but so annoying.

Mobile red light cameras aren't posted on the Waze maps as cameras. But they can be reported as a speed trap as they are temporary in nature.

There's an entire Wiki page that outlines (with pictures) every detail about speed and red light cameras and how to handle them.

There are some users in my city, that are just messing up with the maps, creating speed cameras where there is none!

How do I stop them?

My user can't remove the wrong speed cameras added by this users and the street is not locked.

Can anyone give my a tip to treat this?

Best regards!

This is police (speed trap). In most places, it is required to be operated by a police officer and are rarely an automated machine with no one there. Police is the proper tag for mobile speed cameras. (This has been discussed MANY times in the forums.)

We may, in the future, get an option under Police for speed camera.


All the ones we have here are unattended. But I think the police watch Waze because every time a mobile camera has ever been approved, they move it elsewhere and don't put it back until it's removed from the Waze Map. I kept one off of my route to work for 6 months like that.

What is a mobile red light camera? Do you mean a mobile speed camera? I see them alot near schools and work areas.

I'd like to see a mobile speed camera option. Sometimes the mobile speed camera is there, sometimes its not. So add that icon and allow people to remove it if it's no longer there. I have me using the hidden police icon instead so people can remove it if needed.

It's probably worth noting that there are "red light cameras" that are there to give people tickets and then there are "traffic cameras" that are there to either control the lights or for security.

The light control and security cameras are usually mounted on the overhead traffic light poles, smaller, security camera looking things, those are obviously pretty moot to mark.

The "red light cameras" are usually mounted several yards behind the junction itself, so that they can capture the plates as the cars drive by. They are usually larger, in a box and are on their own poles.

Several states in the US require appropriate signs to warn drivers of their presence but not all.

In certain states, like in MD and AZ, I've seen mobile ones at construction sites or just on the side of the road, mounted to retractable booms on a trailer or on top of an SUV squad car. Those are often not marked in advance by signs.

Huh? I guess it depends on what you mean by hidden. But, there are plenty of cameras around here without warning signs.
