Waze is supposed to be working on that. Perhaps for the next version... maybe not. We won't know until the beta is released. They are working on v3.5 now, feature set or changes not released yet.

The only workaround for now is to turn off "download traffic info." This does have other side effects, but that's kinda the definition of a workaround...

Is the notification from 36km away within 5km of your route? If so, that is by design that the alert radius applies to your route.

Also, if you have popups for groups turned on in Settings, you will get those regardless of distance. Again, by design.

And those are just the latest. The first ones started last December. 2011.

You can reduce the radius down to 5 miles in your settings. That is what I like to use.

I agree - would be great to limit the alerts to just your intended route or to a narrower radius.

I gotta say I too am annoyed at this. There are a few things I just wish to God Waze would fix.

For example turning off event radii would be fantastic. The second pet peeve of mine is the "OK / Passenger" warning when you attempt to type while driving.

The Waze developers should know by now that most of us have the ability of Voice to Text, and in all reality having a message pop up like that actually makes my drive less safe not more.

It is believed that the radius limit is x miles from anywhere on your route. So in reality you will see events more than x miles from your current location.

There are lots of requests to filter to only on route. Waze has stated that they will add this filter in the future...

Unfortunately that's usually not how it works in the world of Waze. The company discloses very little and the community of users has to fill in the gaps.

Waze is better with Facebook and Twitter but that is not the place for this type of information.

I totally agree.
