pop-up and audio alerts for hazards, accidents, etc. are all based on how the report was posted. They must be for your lane and your direction driving on the current road you are on. Hazards posted for "other lane" on a 1-way road (even if a split roadway) will never alert anyone. There is no way to know, by looking at the app, how the hazard or accident or police report was posted.

The last few months of the Waze does not warn me about traffic events, nor the police traps, or of accidents on the roads. Warns only of photo radar.

I know it. They never work, even when deployed as needed.
