AFAIK (and have just re-tested, at least on the INTL infrastructure) the "Avoid Highways" option actually avoids just Freeways, for at least one year long. Hope this helps you/them.

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!)


It's not a bad idea at all. I personally like the idea of creating a police awareness. If people slow down and potentially create an opportunity for a decrease in crashes and what not I'm all for it.

I'd use a police mood. Why not?

I like the idea of the police awareness and slow down etc. But it would be simpler if we would just slow down in general and we would save lives and gas money at the same time.

I just finished reading the thread. (good for me (ha ha)) ;-)
I have made a post once about roads I can't drive. I'm an HVAC technician and I have compressed gas cylinders in my truck (ford E250 small truck) but in my province I have a couple roads I can't use. It would be nice if we could tell waze client app what type of vehicule we are driving. So when I'm driving the compagnie truck I can set it to my work vehicule and my normal car for the rest of the time.

Thanks

BD

Hi everybody !

Country : France
Most used vehicles should be added like Bicycles, Motorbikes, Trucks, SUVs
(and even a Pedestrian mode would be nice :lol: )

Of course by adding specific vehicles, you should create specific roads (bicycles paths, ...) and the possibility to add authorized vehicles in the road options (in WME).

(I'm sorry if my english is bad, but happily you can't hear my awful French accent :lol: )

I believe the vehicle type authorization for roads is in beta now, though it is currently only going to be in the editor. They'll probably make is usable from the client once enough data is added in the editor to make it actually work.

I know pedestrian and bicycles are planned, but that will likely be a while down the road.

Champs or high level editors have been commenting on it. That along with the time based turn restrictions are vehicle restrictions.

Or if you're asking about pedestrians and bicycles, Waze staff mentioned it in their post about the Google acquisition.

Yes, the google-acquisition. In their euphoria, they would have announced support for rollerskates, horsecarts, dogsleds, elephant rides, toboggan and rickshaws if they had thought of it.

For pedestrians and bicycles you need 3-4 times the amount of roads (in cities, at least). All that trouble for an additional 1-2% of users? Not in a long time, not as long as growth rates are in the double figures.
Expect vehicletypes that use a subset of the current roadnetwork, not a superset.
