How to report an incident when I past it?

Postby lunahex » Mon Aug 20, 2012 1:42 am

I wanted to report hidden police once I stopped at home. But it's putting the marker right on my house instead of where the police is... how can I move this? There's no way I'm pulling out my cell phone to report what I see as I drive.

You didn't have it running while driving?

No way around that, it's going to post where you hit send.

It's against the law to drive with a handheld. I can't report when I'm driving. =(

I hope Waze can incorporate some sort of ... route or radius enabled reporting. Maybe a quota of 2 reports per hour or something to help limit abusers but would help with safety.

ETA: Can I remove/delete my report then? Because technically now I'm a cop :lol:

It will disappear after a certain time.

I'm not sure if all phones have the voice reporting feature, iPhone does. I activate voice mode, say report police and pop, it's up.

It posts where you hit the report button, not the Send button. You can also then tap "later" and complete the report further down the road when it's safe.

Having some way to pinpoint the alert later would also be nice. I may not be driving right by a major wreck or speed trap to still be able to see it. The current system means I can't alert to a wreck on an overpass or underpass if I'm on a highway, for example, even though I saw it and could possibly help someone else out.

Still you not allowed to play around with it while driving, at least in Germany.
Voice input should work on most (or even all) devices. As far as I know it is only active in English speaking countries so far.
With two taps you can activate the reporting mode. This will store your position and you can enter more details and submit the report later, when your car is stopped. At least that's safer than typing while passing a police control... :?

Where does Iphone have this option?
I want to try it on my HTC.
It's a good question - sometimes Im not reporting accident or Police, or whatever just because it's not safe to reach out and press 2-3 buttons :roll:
