I would like to be able to have a permanent alert placed at a location for a known police speed trap. This will help all wazers approaching this area even when no active alerts are present.

You have the option to choose "my side" or "other side" on any hazard report. Using your example, are you saying this won't give you the alert when choosing "other side"?

Furthermore, for highway speed traps where there are 2 officers, each one facing opposite directions you should make a seperate report for either side.

I know you can choose my side or other side, but Ithat not what I am referring to and I'm not talking about two different cops either. Ok let's say someone is driving down the road and they see a cop in the middle of the road. When that person clicks speed trap it default to their side of the road. Then if I drive down the road goig the other direction I won't get an audible alert for that same cop in the middle of the road because the persons post can only be for my side or their side of the road not both.

Got you, thanks for clarifying . I agree with that and support MGODLEWs request for said feature. This is especially important for split roadways - 2 one-way segments.

If I remember correctly, back in the earlier days of Waze " Known Speed Trap" was an option for a Wazer to report.

Please add police traps!!!!!

Postby michaelalex17 » Wed Jul 16, 2014 3:21 am

Ok so I know waze already has police traps, but it only reports them if you are on that side of the road. Often times a cop will be in the middle of the highway and if a waze user reports it while driving north on the highway and another waze user comes down the highway going south the cop could very well be in the middle of the road, but the waze user going south won't get an audible alert. Please add audible alerts for police traps regardless of the side of the road your driving on. On a separate note you should be able to change the alert distance or at least make it longer than .4 miles, but this has already been requested before. Thank you
