I'm a truck driver in The Netherlands and would love to have truck vehicle category and options, like size, weight and wheels option in Waze.

Service vehicle. I drive a garbage truck that makes many stops. This makes the road glow because of a falsely slow speed.

I would be very happy to see bicycle and pedestrian added to the vehicle types even if they don't add any bike or walking trails. I find Waze incredible useful even when I am not in the car, and I continue to report accidents and the like when I do, but I know that the speed data I am creating is not helpful to motorists and I wish I could stop providing such misinformation.

Hi,

Dunno if that's been asked for before, but an option for selecting the top speed of the vehicle I'm currently driving would be awesome.

Example: I use a moped for my commute which is able to go at 60kph. However, very often Waze suggests me a route that includes a major highway with a 100kph speed limit, which is 3km longer than the route through the city with next to no traffic jams.

Therefore an option for slower vehicles would be a great addition to Waze.

When waze announces, that it will enable vehicle type selection in client, only then majority of community will start mapping restrictions for trucks or other vehicles. We already know what happened to house numbers.

Here's a UR about the issue, apparently from a trucker:

I'll direct him to the forum post CBenson mentioned.

Just to add: It's true that editors have to set the restrictions before the setting could be effective. Do we know that the setting iS ready to be deployed and is only waiting for us to do the restrictions? It's hard to know which of the many tasks editors have to do should get top priority. There's so much work to do on the map!

There are a lot of truckers out there. Myself included. I always have my phone up for WAZE and my Garmin Dezl GPS up on the dash so I don't hit any bridges. If WAZE added a Truck Mode to the map that would be amazing.

Country - France

hi,

I'm driving a scooter and using Waze.
If 20 cars are driving at 10km/h in a street while 20 scooter are driving at 40km/h, what is the information sent to Waze system and sent by Waze to my phone ?

Why not implement a revolutionary new feature ? It could looks like this :
1/ Possibility to be a "motorbike driver" (among other possibilities) in my profile
2/ When running Waze on my phone a question could appear : "are you driving your motorbike today ?" (after all Waze sometimes ask me if I'm driving or if I'm a passenger ;))
3/ Calculating a travel time specifically designed for motorbikes/scooters either based on car travel times minus x% or based on other scooter drivers :). Even with an alert message "Oh oh ! due to this sooooo great and exclusive new feature, your travel time won't be as precise as usual but is a maximu given the traffic information we have ;)".

And, @petervdveen, by the way when I'm using Waze with my scooter I'm sending Waze "false" informations on traffic. Just because me, and all other motorbikers are driving more easily in heavy traffic or traffic jam...

Splitting car drivers profiles and motorbike/scooter drivers profiles would :
1/ give Waze a really inovative feature (as far as I know, others are not doing this)
2/ send more accurate traffic information to Waze users
3/ be a mean to get more clients ;)

My 2 cents.

I think a truck and trailer would be a good feature
