The problem with that is if you exceed the speed limit only after passing the point where the alert would have originally popped up.
As it stands, if you pass that point going under the limit, you get a pop-up but no audible notification. If you then accelerate, you still don't get the voice notification (you should, I think). At least you have the pop-up, though.
If Waze decided not to show the pop-up when you pass that point under the speed limit, either it'd be like now and you'd be SOL with no alert at all, or the app would have to warn you at the point you exceeded the limit, which may be too late.
The speed cameras here are used in populated urban areas. Populated urban areas have stoplights. Sometimes speed camera alerts show up when I'm pulling up to one of these stoplights. If I don't get notified of an upcoming speed camera, I might accelerate away from that light and past the speed limit just in time to hit the camera.
This is the kind of thing where we should err on the side of giving the user too much information. The point is to be aware of speed cameras. Make it an option, maybe, but don't make the alert conditional like that for everyone.
