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....

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 =/.

I couldn't agree with you more!!!

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 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.

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.


"The fastest way" depends which car I'm in. For me, it isn't just about speed, it's about mechanical sympathy for my own car, and avoiding causing an obstruction to those following.

One of my cars has got front brake cooling ducts that drop below the front splitter, and will scrape on many speed bumps, and especially speed cushions, unless I take them at a crawl. Out of care for my own car, I won't sacrifice the brake ducts. At the same time, I'd like to extend courtesy to following drivers with vehicles that are less delicate or that (perhaps) they just don't care about. This afternoon, I was sent down several miles of roads with severe speed cushions, and had to crab, crawl, and creep my way along, looking all the way to give overtaking opportunities to those wishing to travel faster. It was horrible. For that reason, I'd like to be able to select routes that avoid speed bumps, tables, and cushions, unless they are unavoidable or only over a short section of road.

You can mark pot holes as a hazard, why shouldn't you be able to mark speed bumbs? I would love this feature to be added

4 years and the feature is still not considered..
This will actually help a lot of people. Where I live, there usually exists unmarked, unpainted, speed bumps. Having Waze notifying us about them will not only impress people but also benefits us on the long run.
a simple "Speed bumps reported ahead" warning when approaching a street full of speed bumps, will suffice.
