Too many incident reports

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

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

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.

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...

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.
