Why?

There's no need. If that's the fastest way to get somewhere, taking into account the lower average speed along the road with the speed humps, then Waze will route you that way. If it's not, because of the lower average speed, it won't.

Some people with fancy cars can't go over them at all and therefore speed doesn't factor into it. Unfortunately, this is not possible at this time, and based on the small number of people who are affected, I doubt it will be available any time in the next few years.

Personally I would like it not for routing but as a hazard marking. Several times at night, in an unknown neighborhood, I've whacked into dark, unmarked, steep and sometimes broken up speedbumps.

^^^i i can see that been a issue if i was driving the other car...

but i made the point as there is a road parallel two block down that has no humps, now if you driving at 9 in the night the average road speed no longer "works" in am guessing is it is a residential area the (delta speed may be slow) but as a driver, would you not prefer to be routed to the road with no humps if there where one?

a other thing is most you you live in places that have signs for speed humps or at-least paint them, sadly i don't.

next "Waze is so good it even knows where the speed humps are..." :)
Just saying...

Thanks again.

I would like if this feature was implemented. There have been many occasions that I have been caught unexpectedly by an unmarked speed bump. Please consider making this feature a reality.

I agree that marking these as road hazards would be a great idea. There are a lot of speed bumps in my area, some are marked while others aren't marked very well. It would be nice to have a little advanced notice before hitting them at full speed.

Driving has still be done by the driver. If he still looks at his phone to see what is comming up. He then is missing the road. Is he then a good driver?
Eyes to the road, and use your phone to guid you from A to B not to lead you. From hump to hump.
Remeber a driver without routing asistent, hase to drive bye the eye. And when he misses a hump. He knows, that he is driving to fast.

note. I also like good marked humps

If audio is on, the driver doesn't have to look at the phone to see what's coming. :)

I like the option of hazards for speed bumps and they should have a long life span (at least a month, if not 6-12 months) from the last thanks. Speed bumps don't just cause problems for low-sitting cars, but can also be a problem for RVs or certain vehicles with trailers. And also consider that although some are easy to go over (a low grade slope), others are little short of being a curb in the middle of the road (almost vertical on each end). Those ones are ridiculous and I think they should all go away, but they are definitely a hazard that would be best marked.

Ha ha but that's just not true. For example it is often hard to find street signs, so when I hear I'm about to turn I often look at the map and say "hmm, first there's a crossroad at an angle, then an alley, then my junction which is only a right turn".

and they can destroy your shocks. I've seen a car disabled when one essentially exploded.
