Some of us Wazers drive those and rack up a ton of miles and map edits. and some of us even post our own police reports. :)


So I guess the first thing to ask is a Waze mood for Police, so we can see you driving on the map and avoid you ;) (not kidding, a Police mood could make sense, ask it!)

In some countries like Portugal the police is trying hard to clean up their "corrupt" image and are actively participating in the Internet, from supporting directly websites that collects all radars in Portugal (fixed and hot spots), as well as announcing in advance on their Facebook page the places they will perform stop/speed control operations.

The only thing remaining is to publish their unidentified vehicle license plates, but whoever really wants to know can easily discover them.

So I'm sure some of those cops will use Waze and would love to use the police mood.

They are heavily advertising on tv and magazines about "prevention". Of course there are always black sheeps looking for the ticket money at 3 in the morning.

@fvwazing just because it's the village of Weert, doesn't automatically make it disaster area. That'll make some unhappy residents ;-)

I figured it wasn't very concrete.
They will not go there. Other apps are way better on the pedestrian and bicycle thing. That boat has left and it's to late to jump on.

Just started using Waze. Finding it a nice app. Now see that I'm probably messing things up (speed reports) since I'm riding a bicycle. But, I'm able to document problems though while riding like missing streets and traffic problems, construction zones, so I would like to see a bicycle mode.

Thanks,
