Unfortunatelly no admin has read this thread or at least responded. I still think it's a good thing and not too difficult to implement an option of keep warning or, at least, to customize the alert area, because to be alerted more than 800m from the radar and nothing more isn't a good thing for me. When it alerts i just forget about it because it's too far from it. If I'm at the radar area I think it's the best to keep warning if I'm overspeeding it. Let's hope an moderator see this threat at least to respond us.

+1 on this, at least as an option it would be great to be alerted for all radars, whatever the current speed

Yep, that's my point too.
Let's hope a Developer of Waze or an operator see this suggestion. I don't think it's a very difficult to put an option to do a continuous beep near the radar area.

I agree, I miss a "always on" alert whenever I'm approaching the radar.

An option to be able to get that alert sound would be great

As I said before, this is not a "problem", is just an upgrade. I don't know if it's just at my country, but the range of the Speed Cameras here are VERY large, the warning is almost 1km from the speed camera and if you are in the Speed limit 1 km before it don't send any Sound Warning. If you increase your speed a little it still doesn't warn because you are already at the speed camera area.
I'm don't have a "heavy foot", my last "penalty" was almost 2 years ago and it's always near the speed limit. I was just suggesting this because it's what I liked in iGO or Tom Tom that Waze don't have.

Thanks,

Cristiano

I can't see this being a problem unless you have a really heavy foot. If I'm approaching a 35 MPH speed camera going 34 MPH as I get into the alert zone, I'd have to get up to 43 before I get to the spot where the camera triggers in order to get a ticket. (Here they give you 8 MPH...that may differ in other places).

Of course, most of the idiots around here know where the cameras are and slow down to 20 to be sure they don't get a ticket, and I go happily cruising by in the passing lane at 40, knowing that it's not going to get me.

Is there anyway to just turn it off?

That's not the problem. At least in iOS, when you LOCK your phone with Waze opened you can still listen to crash alerts, traffic alerts, Danger Alerts but even if you are above the speed limit (always considering that the radar is approved and with the limit) it doesn't alert (sound).
Also, even when you have Waze opened (without the phone Locked) when you are not above the speed limit in the "radius" of radar (near it) it doesn't warn you, but if you get above it before you pass through it, it still doesn't warn you, that's the problem for me.

And even when you are getting closer and not in the speed limit, I think it could be an option to have a small beep alert to warn that there is a radar near.

This is not a bug, I know how it works nowadays, this is my recommendation for a future version of Waze.

... assuming the speed traps have been approved, have the speed limit set in the editor, and the map has been updated.

Radar alerts only happen if you are exceeding the speed of the camera. Otherwise it's nt necessary to alert you.
