Not an option.

I have mute set to ON, which turns off all the turn by turn speech, but it doesn't silence the speed camera alerts. I had previously set 'Prompts Volume' to zero in the sound settings screen, which worked, but since the last update things have gone badly wrong.
I noticed on my drive to work this morning - and I use the M6 past Birmingham which is littered with a crazy number of speed traps - that Waze was literally telling me about speed cameras every three seconds. Annoying, to say the least. I checked my settings and 'prompts volume' was still on zero. I fiddled with the volume control and managed to set it back to zero again. However this didn't entirely solve the problem, as Waze was still muting my audio when it would have played it's speed trap warning.
On my way home today I fired up Waze again and immediately noticed that the prompts volume, whilst still set to zero, was again being ignored and I was being told about speed cameras every few seconds.
In the end I task killed Waze just so I could listen to a book in peace.
I'm in exactly the same situation. It's driving me up the wall.
Part of my commute involves a 30-mile section along the M1 where there's speed cameras nearly every 200 yards. It interrupts my Bluetooth music listening incessantly.
Free app or not, it's utter madness that I'm forced to choose between Waze and ditching the other Bluetooth features of my not inexpensive car. Good job then that Waze carries some equity with me otherwise I'd have been off a long time ago.
If TomTom was like this then we'd all be laughing our heads off - right?

2) You can also turn off the warnings in the app.
The top section has roadworks, and the bottom section is traffic managed with variable speed limits and hard-shoulder running - so yes, there's lots of cameras and gantries all along the motorway. It's one of the busiest commuting routes into London and is heavily policed.
