1) While Waze does not track Traffic Lights, Waze does know the "time to turn" (or go straight) at each intersection. This, like the speed data for the segment, is kept in 10-15 minute chunks for the entire day. Waze takes the "time to turn" into account when routing.

2) The popup that comes up while driving for Police (or Hazard, etc) does contain "Not There" and "Thanks". Be aware that this pop-up only happens when one is travelling in the direction the report was created for (so if you are travelling north & the officer was reported by someone travelling south and they didn't use the "other side" option, you won't get the report). Please note, the "other side" option does not work for divided roads (like the Interstate Highways in the US).

Possible Improvements for App

Postby Cycle201 » Mon Apr 08, 2013 1:05 pm

I was thinking of some improvements for the mobile app.

1- Possibly adding the option for AM's (Area managers) to add traffic lights to map, You say why? I was thinking Only have the option for the Managers to add and the Waze traffic Computer can calculate through GPS how long the average driver sits at these lights and then calculate the real time it takes to get from point A to B.

2-Have the approval like you have now for LIVE police that says not here or Thanks, have the same for red light cameras or road block,etc,,,Maybe something like TRUE and FALSE

Just a thought,

Understood, Thank you, But the Red light camera only has the NOT THERE button, and a very tiny x in the corner and I was thinking in my first post that most people might just hit the not there and thereby downgrading the camera and thats the current issue im having in my area.
