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:

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.

In other European countries the limits follows the same schema.

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

Thinking about it, all of us already have a speedometer in front of us in the dash to monitor our speed. I'm not constantly looking at the app for my speed; I just need to know what the speed limit is at all times; there are PS / mH / MH that don't have soon enough signage after a turn or we've accidentally missed seeing them along the way.

Putting instead the speed limit in a revving green / full at 12 o'clock switch to red highlighted circle makes a lot more sense to me.

Also right now with the gray under limit highlight I can barely tell how close I am, and the small limit notation is almost impossible to read when the phone is far enough away mounted on the dash.

It would be nice that the speed and visual speed excess alarm, could be configured in size and location on the screen.
It would also be good if audible alarm Overspeed could be configured as a continuously beep sounding every x seconds while being at a speed over the limit. This is because sometimes the unique overspeed beep is not heard. Great App!!! Thanks.

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?

It's being rolled out on a state by state basis. I think the list of states that have been rolled out might even be in this thread, but I can't find it by searching... anyway, it is not all of them 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.
