Also there would be possible to figure out algorithm of registering severe accidents for example if phone feels very hard deceleration, but user is not responding to phones questions after following stopping of car. We could warn local community that PROBABLY accident took place.
There is some merit in this one perhaps, more so on remote roads
Again I disagree. Again you are suggesting a User have to interact with the device. And again, Waze already has a mechanism in place for it. If there is a hard stop and the User doesn't touch his phone.. Waze is going to see that the averagecspeed for that segment just dropped drastically, and create a jam. WhY does this need to prompt the User for anything OR require extra code/development/and QA time for a feature we already have.
Every single thing mentioned in this thread so far is already handled by Waze learning average speeds!
As for portholes.. come on now.. locals are going to go around them.. non-Locals will likely drive around them also if they are paying attention to the road instead of pressing even more pop ups in their nav app.
I personally vote NO for every feature that has been suggested in this thread. Waze already handles it, and the have better things to prioritize.

Yeah?! Right! And How about helping? How about not only warn but make impact on road providers, and make other effects unrelated with Your personal, "little world" interests? You will collect cents from little cheaper gas, but not help to someone when accident, not just soft tire or running out of oil happens around? But if such pop-up appears... You could save someone for real. It could also be too far to closest police or ambulance and city "jams", dense traffic. Don't want to inform that road is not only slippery, cobbled, dusty, but real killer for car or trouble some for sleeping baby? I am not talking about holes only. And please take in account development at different countries - absolutely new, reconstructed roads can change to moon surface quite frequently and You indeed will be soon tired to warn about all hazards there. Some situations could be felt by phone and registred...esp. if conditions are relatively permanent.
I really don't wish You to get into situation when You will just wish if such features would be available!
I Don't understand Your worries about extra codes/development if device resources grows every year and I'm sure that also waze enterprise is not getting smaller or less wealthy. Name these better things! Cheapest grocery? Cleanest toilet? - And You'll refuse to push one button to confirm that "This wasn't impact. Everything is ok! Don't send alarm!" and only after powerful (de)acceleration of device and complete stop of vehicle?
We are generating another feature here: First aid sequence wizard/helper. Waze users could use it at very stressful and first experience situation without searching in web or other aid application.
Try to play all possible scenarios and figure out how waze could be more helpful and if it's really so bothering and impossible to implement. I repeat again that some of bothering or "unnecessary" functions could be disabled. But real social users could appreciate these features.
