Speed bumps

Postby CoreForce » Sat Nov 16, 2013 3:33 pm

Hi,

Waze could automatically collect information about speed bumps and high shoulders to pass on turns.
E.g. when a car is running slow, register the data from accelerometer.

Having this, Waze could incorporate this with warnings or even routing, e.g. for lowered cars.
Some routes that Waze suggests I cannot follow with my Ferrari because of bumps and raised shoulders, but would be no problem with a stock Ford.
This road is one example for it:

Thanks

That really wouldn't work well as an automatic warning. Cars slow down regularly for a wide variety of reasons. Speed bumps have been suggested before and could be useful, but in general, a road with speed bumps or where it's in really bad shape will have a slower speed, so would be routed around when possible already.

As a note, the new routing restrictions by vehicle type that can be set in the editor could be expanded to allow for restricting low riding vehicles and restrictions can be placed on roads with speed bumps or that are too bad for such a vehicle. There is a thread asking for vehicle types where you can suggest low riding vehicles if you want. Maybe they'll consider adding it. Note that the restrictions are not enabled yet and are only available for editing.

Hi Riasmus,

thanks for that. I can see the restrictions panel in the map editor. That would be a good place to start, indeed.
Do you have a pointer into the thread asking for vehicle types where you can suggest low riding vehicles?

Thanks

It is extremely necessary in Brazil.

So, many roads has the limit of velocity, but the speed bumps are not located to keep the velocity under the road's velocity. It come many times unexpectedly.
I recommend to put warning for bump speed (lombada, obstaculo, tartaruga, quebra mola).
Other reasons that they put speed bumps: near from church and school, before bad curve, and others.

For instance, the velocity of the road is 100km/h and appears a speed bump in the night and you must to reduce unexpectedly. It occur in Brazil.

I agree with you.

Adding speed bumps on the map!

Postby al-kharji1019 » Sat Nov 21, 2015 4:40 am

Adding speed bumps by map editors will make drivers aware that they should be breaking down and getting their speed down soon. That will help the community drive safer!

I agree with that suggestion, we should be given an option in the reporting section where we could report the nasty speed bumps.

Noooo!!! If you add that I wont be superman anymore :P

j/k

That would be an excellent feature. But perhaps with the new speed limit being added (gradually to each country) we could use that to help people know where it is (wme purists might not like it).

Where I have been driving in Europe and from what I've seen in my travels to the US, most speed bumps area already announced, so there should be no need for Waze to have yet a new voice alert when drivers could simply watch the road for existing signs, as they always should before anything else.

This could perhaps be enabled separately for countries that request the feature only, if their country doesn't have such signs. I've read that they are not marked everywhere in the world.
