I turned on the speed alerts while I was in Italy. The thresholds were percentages above the speed limit (probably because the speed cameras in that country give a 5% tolerance above the speed limit). However, in the US, using a percentage doesn't work well, as many speed cameras and state laws give a fixed MPH threshold before ticketing. Could Waze add fixed AND percentage thresholds to the app?

I know it may not be fair to point to another app, but for this very topic about speed limit, I definitely suggest you to test CamSamPlus which is basically the same as the reknowed Coyotte, with a very intuitive interface, and the Plus version (costs less than 1 EUR) can be run as a widget on top of Waze (you can even set it up such that popups only appear when approaching a radar). Both fixed and mobile radars are available, with updates for mobile radars every 5 minutes. I agree their database for fixed cams is not always 100% accurate in rural areas, but very accurate for both fixed and mobile cams on major highways. There's a free version available for testing (but you won't be able to use the widget on top of Waze, although both apps can run concurrently).

Give a try to RadarBeep app on Google Play. Worth looking at, and does include a radar list for Switzerland (as many other countries). However, their policy for radar list updates is nowhere available...

On the other side, because "Y a pas l'feuu auuuu laaaaaac" you don't need speeding up ;-)

No, not currently, but this was requested many times and we were told it was put on the roadmap for the future.

This is an app related feature so I moved your post from the Waze Map Editor section into the correct one. I also merged it in the main thread related to speed limits.

Yes, I heard some rumors, but no ETA and no idea if they started to actually work on it or to develop it yet.

For example in Italy:
a) 10 Km/h - Under this speed Police does not ticket or there is a low fee for minor offense. I want to be alerted only above this.
b) 40 Km/h - Above this limit, speeding is a serious crime and they will rip my driving license. So I want a loud and visible alarm if I ever happen to cross this border!

Fixed speeds in addition to % is planned.

a) That will be available with the planned fixed speed limits
b) Giving a second setting to alert for a higher speed after the first lower alert speed would imply that Waze is giving people tools to allow to be speeding deliberately, very unlikely to happen anytime soon. You should simply slow down and respect limitations after your first chosen speed limit alert, not be able to ignore it and continue speeding until a second one.

That is done through the Waze Map Editor.

That has been requested before. But as far as I know it's not planned yet.

Some things aren't meant to be locked at a higher level and its going to make it more difficult for other people to climb. Either they need to do away with the restrictions/rank or something because Ive found a lot of errors in South Carolina

The locking and rank system is in place for good reasons.
What many new editors don't know is that they can request unlocks to be able to edit what they want. Find your local forum and ask for the segments to be unlocked.
