I agree. Much like some people want to avoid toll roads at almost all cost, I much prefer to avoid speed bumps even if it means a couple of minute delay in my trip.

I also think that this would be a really useful feature. There must be a way to let other wazers know that there is a speed hump in a segment. Maybe the same way as when a road is temporary shown as closed, but in this case with a yellow dot (as a warning) and without any date limit.

I couldn't agree with you more!!!

The need for traffic calming / speed hump warnings appears to be under estimated as these devices increase in proliferation and are frequently unmarked or poorly marked.

There are two aspects to this requirement:
1. A facility for Wazers to report these devices as they do for hazards or cameras. This is a safety issue as a timely warning will reduce vehicle damage and accidents.
2. An indication that a road contains traffic calming devices. This is a convenience for people who wish to avoid such roads.

I feel that perhaps this isn't something necessarily that Waze should improve, but rather your local government =/.

Marking for speed humps/bumps is NEEDED in Mexico PLEASE!! In Mexico, there are many bumps made unusually high and/or without signs. Some bumps even made by local person just only for slowing drivers to buy their merchandise. In the morning, the bump without paint still can be seen but at night? sigh....

Gentlemen, because the project was not voted speed humps? Here in Brazil this function would be very valid, because our roads are laden with speed humps.

add a junction node at the speed bumps,
it will add like 3 sec penality to the street and route more often on the streets free of speed bumps, except on traffic detour.

please wait for an higher editor to admit it

But Waze already knows the time to travel the entire segment (including the slow down for the speed bumps). And the three second penalty gets changed when Waze gathers the data for that point.

Somewhere in the forums (can't seem to find it right now) it is mentioned that the penalty only applies if there's a choice to be made at a junction. In other words, a junction between only 2 segments will not get the penalty. If that is so, then adding a junction won't have any effect.

Over time, waze should learn the average speeds. So if you are routed down the humpy road, drive very slowly to teach waze. ;)
