Country: Italy
Desidered New Vehicle Type: Bicycle, Motorcycle

I use my motorcycle everyday for communting so it would be great to be able to use Waze on my motocycle too.

Waze it's great, thanks a lot for doing it.

Motorcycle option would be nice to have.

I do realize that Waze data is dependent on Wazers driving on highways and Wazers as cyclists/motorcyclists can affect the data and cause confusion for drivers.

for ie - West Side Highway in NYC is experiencing heavy traffic jam and is now moving at 5 mph. 10 motorcyclists is "easily navigating" thru at 25 mph and it can affect the data to show highway speed at 10-15 mph or upgrading it to "moderate".

I think the most logical solution is to disregard data from motorcyclists.

I'd like to see a wambulance. Given that there are quite a few medics that edit and waze to get to an emergency call, I'd like to see that option.

I've thought of "waze" to help out emergency responders using waze, myself having been in the industry for 10 years, and find it difficult to really nail down an "emergency mode" setting on the app. I would think that people who see it may use it to their advantage and get in the way of first responders to the scene. I'd like to see something where an emergency responder can close out a few sections of highway/roadway because there's an evacuation going on, street closures due to a large fire, etc, instead of having to go to each individual street.

Palm Beach County SO watches the HOV lane as does ATLPD. They'll pull you over and check the amount of people in the vehicle. Only you? That's a ticket.

Vehicle types/ Navigation types

Postby Unholy » Wed Dec 05, 2012 4:13 pm

Hi folks,

We need your help:

Currently there is only one vehicle type in Waze - Private car.
All navigation methods in Waze are currently designated for the use of drivers who use private cars only.
Well... We're working on exciting stuff here at Waze HQ, but we need your help!

- Which types of vehicles should be added to Waze's client? (i.e truck, 18 wheelers, scooters etc.)
- which types of navigation would you like to see? ( HOV lanes, truck roads only etc.)

We're waiting to hear you all!

* Please elaborate as possible and state your country.

- which types of navigation would you like to see?

Well, it would be great to have a navigation based on the most economical route. Today there's only the fastest and shortest route. The economical mode would be somewere in between fastest and shortest route.

Are there any news about putting on a road a "weight limit"? In my country (Estonia), there are many cities, that can't allow trucks above 8 tonne or so. That idea, in my opinion, is brilliant.
