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.

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.

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.
