Speed limits...a lot of in town "traffic jams" could be suppressed if waze knew that 30mph was the speed limit and it not display that there is heavy traffic going 27mph

Multi stop set ups, instead of just a single in route stop.

Once you have a significant number of Wazers in town, that will happen automatically. If the traffic is flowing at 27 and showing a jam, it's because there's not enough speed data yet.

That sort of thing stopped in my area once there was about 50 Wazers showing during rush hour every day.

Thx for the info

On unidentied errors it would be nice to be able to place a note when closing like "user cut through parking lot, not error."

I think adding picturesque routes to Waze would be a neat idea. Editors would just have to mark scenic segments and users could check the option to follow the most scenic route while on vacation.

Add a enhanced POI system such as hotels, restaurants, etc and you get an amazing tool to convince Wazers to use the app outside of their daily commute.

Waze is beta testing a long term, remote report, web based interface in the world server right now. Give it time, and it should come over to the NA side also.

1) If you have the voice control option, you can report a lot more things then what is on the menus. Their is finite space on the menus, if they put everything that everyone has suggested on them, you would have to scroll for a mile to find the one you want.

2) you can turn off traffic display in the advanced settings. Doesn't stop reports from popping up while stopped or if you have them set for any groups you are in, but that will effectively do what you want.

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. :)

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.

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.
