You can always decide to participate in map editing for your area which results in a sizeable amount of extra points.

As a new Waze user, I find the point system somewhat of an enjoyable game. However, the playing field is not level. While I drive about 900 miles a week for work, I doubt I can compete with the truck drivers in terms of their weekly mileage (and point accumulations). Likewise, I doubt that the motorcyclists can compete effectively with either the 4-wheelers or the 18-wheelers. I think it would be more interesting for Wazer's who attend to the point system to select and compete within one of at least three vehicle type classes--commercial trucks, private autos, and motorcycles. I do recognize that other vehicle categories may be needed as well, such as RVs, buses, taxis, street cars, light rail trains and streetcars, etc. But, a simple stratification of vehicle types (e.g., truck, car, bikes) in the point rankings would be a great step in the right direction.

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.

Add bicycles! We have a lot of cycling lanes in the Netherlands and it would be nice to recognize this as well.

Eticketlizabeth, this whole discussion is not about which car icons should be available to be displayed on top of the map (as is your taxi). It's about which vehicle categories should be supported (length, speed, weight, no. of passengers, etc.) and what routes they should get suggested according to the restriction shields along the real roads.

Sent from a touch display, which took care of perfectly scrambling my thoughts.

I love that more cars are now available, but how about a minivan/van? I know I'm not the only Mom's Taxi Service out there using Waze! (I chose "taxi" for just that reason, but I actually drive a black minivan--nothing like the only black vehicle available, the Smart!)
