It says none of those things, it says "At least four minutes ago someone saw a police car at this very specific point of ground." That is it. That officer may have had someone pulled over, may be sitting on the side of the road watching for speeders and other violators (both valid reports) or, he may have been cruising watching for speeders, cruising trying to do a slowdown, may have been going on a call, may have been going to dinner, may have been going to work, may have been going home, but most importantly was at this spot at least four minutes ago and is now most likely miles away (or kilometers away). So by the time you get this report the officer could, have someone pulled over, still be driving but four minutes down the road, may be at a call, may be at dinner, may be at the station, may be home, but most importantly (if the officer was moving) IS NOT HERE any more. A police report does not block out a section of road that may be patrolled, it says an officer is at this geographic point at some fairly recent but still minutes ago period of time. There is no value to navigation, there is no value to a rapidly outdating report(every second the officer gets further away from the point and each intersection vastly increases the possibilities of where he could go.) And too many false reports result in drivers just ignoring them, including the legitimate ones resulting in getting caught speeding and more importantly in not knowing ahead of time to move over and slow down for safety reasons.
Yes, yes,yes, you right.
IS NOT HERE ANYMORE. but he's here there around and may catch you for speeding.
cannot see your point -for what reason, you think, police reports in waze is need?
for me, as i already says, is more important to not catch for speeding or so, than a "false alarm".
for me lot better is ten times slow down to legal speeds, than one time get catched for speeding, because in that situation i lost my money, time, and possible - licence. false warnings and driving in speed limits no introduce any lose for me, as so i always be winner there. but if anyone thinking not show moving police at all - there is big chances get a speed ticketing, who really put down whole thing about police reports in waze - because always there will be moving police, who can give you speeding tickets, in any place, and peoples like you say "moving police must not be showing, because it not there, but 200 metres further!".
for me, it looks very, very strange and alogically.
P.S. do you hear about Pascal's Wager?
i think, that situation, about we there discuss is very similar -if you report about moving police and all around see that and slow down - no one had loss. there is only a gains. for absolutely all, including driving safety, and police ( except amount of police collect money).
