Waze Reports - Car stopped in lane.

Postby shyatt714 » Thu Jan 24, 2013 2:08 am

I'd like to see Waze add some more "Hazard Reports" features that would be a bit more helpful.

"Car stopped on shoulder" is almost never any help but inventing adding the Hazard report "Car Stopped in Lane" would be a life saver. Three times this month I've been in traffic to find out eventually that I was actually stuck in the really slow moving lane that had a stalled car in it. Notifying Wazers in advance of this kind of thing would really help out a lot!

Just a suggestion!

Vehicle stopped on road is a current hazard notification type, but only accessible via voice command.

Yes, so it's usability is very limited. I thought I saw a screenshot from the app showing vehicle stopped on road, but all i could find was the shoulder version.

I agree, this would definitely be a useful hazard to add.

Also I would be twice as useful if each type of hazard had it's own icon... :)

I hope waze will import this very soon in a new release. For me its the perfect to use it. Because I see many accidents and stopped care on the lane, not on the sidelane.
