I have no idea how to use the map editor and it’s not from lack of intelligence or trying at least I hope it’s not the intelligence. Albeit, I am only level 1.

Hey there! The Discord server (link above) is a great resource for beginner editors on Waze. On the Discord channel, there are countless editors who are more than happy to assist you with your questions and make you feel comfortable with the map editor. Additionally, there are plenty of useful resources for you to use. For instance, you should read about the Waze Map Editor here. This is the key place where new editors should start. Another good resource is on the best map editing practice. You can access it here. Hope this helps!

Glad I just found this NY forum!!! I have been looking for information regarding why the map will not allow users to add speed cameras. its been frustrating not being able to update the map and warn fellow Wazers' of the new 700+ cameras.

Do you know the reason behind not being able to update speed cameras in the Waze app?

I don't know the exact reason, but I can tell you that we used to get more incorrect camera reports than real ones. There are lot of other cameras - especially in NYC - for video surveillance or other uses, and they were getting marked as red light cameras or speed cameras when that's not what they were for.
