I think, if something is reported on your route specifically, waze will show a pop-up stating this. I once reported a police trap, took a couple U-turns, and saw a warning accompanied by a sound (I think). It's the only time I ever noticed that, but that will change when we have more users.
And what zzyzx said is true: it displays only the nearest things to you. As the userbase grows, the alerts will become more relevant.

A "camera" is not a red light camera, which is what Waze alerts about. The vast majority of intersections, in the US at least, do not have red light cameras. Many traffic light controlled intersections do have video cameras for traffic control, but not for law enforcement. See the Cameras page for more details.

I'm in agreement with being able to choose a smaller radius for events that occur. I have had mine set to 5 miles and get all these pop-ups when I stop regarding events that are no where even close to me. As well as there needs to be more information listed in the event. All I see is, for example, major accident, Preston Rd., Dallas. Well, Preston Rd. runs for miles and the accident reported could be anywhere. In rush hour traffic, every time I stop, my phone blows up with notifications and change to fast to see the map. The closest cross street should be included on the report, like Preston Rd. @ Frankford Rd.
I also agree that the user should be allowed to turn off notifications for traffic cams. I drive the same way to work and back home every day. I know where the cameras are and don't need to see the pop ups every time I drive by them. They already show up on the map so what's the need?
Do the folks from Waze even read these posts? Just seems to me that people are posting and no one takes notice.
