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.

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.

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 am going to have to agree with the rest of the people saying it. I would love to see a Semi Truck vehicle type.

Luxury you would be lucky to get on a toll road for less than $4 in Australia!

Consider this a vote of support if someone had already suggested it but in addition to types it would beneficial if vehicle height and weight could be specified as many bridges and tunnels are restricted by those requirements. In Australia even some roads will be restricted to vehicles less than some weight.

Otherwise bus, taxi and I guess truck would be useful types for us

Cheers!

Edit. Just went past a no left turn for vehicles over 7 metres so length would be good as well

Well, there are bikes, and then there are bikes. These ways are just fine for a cross-bike, but not for an ATB or a standard city-bike. They serve their purpose: Everyone expects a different thing from bike-ways, just like a truck driver has different expectations of car-navigation from the driver of a limousine.

Time-of-Day-Restrictions. There is at least one one-way in Hamburg which changes its direction over the day, and there are a couple of streets which are forbidden during a part of the day.

Best regards,
