Speed Cameras not reporting in Waze on Staten Island...

Staten Island, one of the 5 boros of NYC is barely showing any Speed Cameras in Waze. We have become inundated with Speed cameras on almost every other block. We are all adding them to Waze, but it seems Waze is still not reporting them almost 2 months later. When can we expect proper reporting of Speed Cameras on Staten Island? People are getting slammed with tickets.....

I will start adding these in. Do you have a source for that photo? I just can't find a similar list online so I was hoping this came from a source we could potentially check for updates from in the future.

This is a group of concerned citizens on a Facebook group page. There are now 4 more that were installed that are not on this list. I will have to give you a list of the 4 new installed speed cameras. Please see this link on Facebook for validations. Thanks....

Are these just permanent poles or are some people potentially reporting mobile cameras? Cameras take a few days to be added/removed from the app, so we don't want to add mobile cameras. I have been able to confirm a few off of your first list so far from other reports in the app.

Inside the Facebook group, people are posting the locations with a picture of the pole, and camera, and the street signs..... each one is a justified speed camera location...

Thanks! We'll add them as I or other editors get a chance. You should see some start to pop up in the app soon. Including the direction has been very helpful, as the ones that come in through the app typically don't have that information and is what leads to a delay in them being added.

If you could spread the word: It's much easier for us to add cameras if Wazers use the "Map Issues" button. If you tap that button right when you're passing the camera, that drops a report at your exact location. Then just type in speed camera and the direction (EB, WB, SB, NB) and that will help us place it quicker.

You might want to suggest that your group check out nexar app.

It's a dashcam app for your phone that will allow for a shared video of your route with GPS tracking as well.

And it is very helpful to us as map editors because the image is publicly available once uploaded.

Thanks for all your Help with this.

We have been adding the cameras as quickly as we can identify there locations.
