Umm wow that was uncalled for. There is already a cop report feature just wanted to expand on it. And I will drive like I want to with or without this app.

When I started using Waze, I thought that the 'Report Camera' function WAS actually for reporting a temporary speed cam, and not a fixed one. I think that many new Wazers also make the same assumption.

The 'Report Camera' should be to indicate cops out manning a temporary camera and the current 'Report Police' should be just that. Police that is visible due to duties / random checks or roadblocks that they are manning.

If no-one else agrees with the map issue option, either the report Camera option should include a 'Temporary Cam' option, or the Report Police should get a third selection of Speed Enforcement or whatever other elegant description in addition to just the hidden / visible option.

As I am not in the drug-running or gun-smuggling business, I don't really care if cops are reported so would not try to avoid that area ;) Them being in plain sight or jumping out behind a bush/tree/wall would make no big difference to me.
I do however have lead in my shoes, so my foot tends to be heavy ...


HaHa Kuhlkatz, I am not in the smuggling business either but I do have a heavy foot and would like some universal way for people to say "hey, there's a cop out patroling around this area.

And 60 seconds after the report is made the cops are a mile away...



Very true, maybe a "cops patrolling" report? just thinking out loud

I would like to be able to see the status of the current map on the device app. Put it down in the settings somewhere, but it would nice to know the current map version without having to go to the website.

I second AlienGC's suggestion. If notes were added to this point, it could be used for a wide range if things. (I'm thinking of notes to myself regarding map updates, but....).

The ability to remotely add events!

I know this opens an entirely different can of worms for urban environments but in rural locations like mine, and locations with few wazers, the odds are slim that major events (road closures, accidents) would get reported. An Example:

It snows where I live. A Lot. This last winter the highway out of town heading south was completely blocked off by a snowdrift. The province closed the road and posted in all their social media accounts that the road was closed. This cut the city off from all points south. As it stood, waze showed the highway as open and bare because one of the handful of wazers in town would need to drive out there and manually tag that the road was closed, a dangerous and foolish task in that weather.

What I would like to do is take (For example) twitter reports from @driveBC and translate them into waze reports. It could save someone a whole lot of pain and suffering.

Even if this ability was given only to Area Managers, it would help.

You can report not there, if you are travelling the same direction. Otherwise, you can only make comments.

People have already suspect that police are remove reports about themselves, so if it was allowed for anything anywhere, it could really be abused.

This is from a 3.x version point of view, but menu->settings->advanced->show on map

Traffic layer (color coded) = the automated reports that show current speed of segment.
Traffic jams = The reports from other wazers (manual, or prompted "are you in traffic")

Your 3rd option might be doable, but they have to make the names actually correct first :)
Their is a current issue with getting the wrong info attached to a wazer icon.

If they implement this, definitely would need to be an option, because if you are in a high wazer density area, you will have a hard time seeing the road without the labels. :)
