If running Waze had any potential to contact authorities simply because I didn't dismiss a pop up in time.. I'd stop using it IMMEDIATELY.

When I drive, I don't talk on the phone. I don't text, I dint interact with Waze or any other app. To require me to do so is a safety concern. Not only tot me, but for every other driver and pedestrian along my route.


With that said, I think this thread was a good discussion, but I don't think I need to spend any more time in it. Cheers!

We are running in circles here. As I said, if we talk about smoothness of road or potholes, waze could record only similarly, repetitive patterns of same segments of road. In such solution You must not talk or push something on phone.

Vote for This feature on uservoice!

Other case is when possible impact and following complete stop of vehicle happen. You should be able to respond on phone's dialog... phone could also make signals and flash to attract Your attention to make You answer. Anyway - it must be clear that You are not driving, vehicle is not moving - accelerometers are still, gravity sensor is still, gps data same for some minute.

people,

for comum peopole to understand, a easy way to solve this and an simple idea:
when editing roads can't we just put the street type as coblbled? This would be easy to set up for Waze and would help a lot on some "historical" ou "not that rich" cities that have cobbled roads (that me and my car hate a lot!).
an exemple: I rather to more 10% more ETA than have to pass on cobbled roads.
Waze, pelase add this feature.

Then, anyone can choose their proper journey. =)
What do you think?

Great suggestion! I live in Riga(Latvia/LAT/LV), which is originally ancient town with old-town in the center and many roads there are cobbled, also some major downtown roads are cobbled, but some argues that speed on cobbled roads are lower so usually waze will not suggest to make routes through them. But I also think that in same options window where we chose to not use long gravel roads there could be also option to not suggest too long sections with cobbles or just include cobbles to same preference, but there also must be possibility to show cobbled roads in the map editor.
