What process did you follow (start to finish), and when did you do it?

If I'm not mistaken, the usa_xxxxx users are the default assigned to Facebook imports.

That may be the case, I cannot remember, but it is likely. usa_, world_ and il_ accounts are also created if you use Waze without logging in at all.

Actually, what tends to delay us more is school bus routes. The change in speed in front of an actual school usually increases travel time by 10-15 seconds, but getting stuck behind a bus...that can add minutes.

I don't think reporting "not there" does anything at all...

It seems reporting "not there" might do something, but not something as useful as causing the camera to not be on the map.

Are you sure?

So do you see the cameras you added and cannot approve them or do you not seem them on the edit map at all?

This vehicle is parked in front of an elementary school which dismisses the last classes around 3PM. Even the faculty are generally gone before 5 and it is totally dark in winter at that time. These things operate in the dark even when no children are present (like 7:59 PM).

The question here is: why can't users update the location of these vehicles just like they can report other police activity in real-time?

Agreed. Same for holidays and summer break. They operate on MLK day and July 30th even when no children are present.

As you note many of the school zone cameras are in fact in vehicles (all though some are in boxes that are moved periodically). if these aren't permanent enough to be confirmed as cameras, then they can be reported as police. They essentially function as a police speed trap.
