Absolutely - I thoroughly second this request. ANPR based average speed camera zone warnings would be an excellent addition to Waze's current speed camera offering.

Also to note that many of these cameras on the road are not actually active, so it would be great to be able to leverage Waze's crowd-sourced information on which of these cameras is active.

add reporting of average speed cameras will be a great thing to improve the application. cut the danger area into four zones with audible beeps in the same area. Also include the declaration of mobile mobile cameras.

I see in WME Average speed camera is enabled, but when I set it for a segment I don't see anything happen when I drive through that segment, what is wrong?

You have to wait for the map to update for the change to take effect on average about 2 days

Hi,
That is not the case, even after updating the map nothing happens.

Average ('point to point') speed cameras are becoming more common in my area. At the moment, some of them are marked as fixed speed cameras (start and/or end position), which is something, but I can't help feeling there could be so much more.

The idea that I'd like to float is the following:
    1. Users could identify the start, finish and average speed of the relevant zones via the app, with fine tuning in WME per the current fixed speed camera procedure.
    2. Once the zones are known and locked down, Waze would warn drivers of the upcoming areas as it would a regular fixed camera.
    3. I expect Waze would be able to relatively easily calculate the Wazer's average speed for the zone (as they already do for calculating navigation times?).
    4. Once this is known, Waze calculate how the Wazer is tracking with respect to the average speed over the zone and display if they should take action to avoid an infringement. E.g., if the Wazer has been exceeding the posted limit by 10% for the first half of the zone, Waze should be able to display the average speed that the Wazer would need meet over the second half of the zone in order to correct this (i.e. how much they would need to slow down by) and the Wazer could gradually and safely reduce speed until the two numbers (current average speed and required future average speed) meet.

Obviously real-world examples would be more complex that this, but in my view it would help take one more thing off the drivers mind. Anyway, I'm sure it's more complex in reality than it is in my head, but I would love to see this as a feature!


Is there an official reply from Waze Team to this post?
There will be such an alert or not?

So I am new to the editing side of waze, but reading this am I correct in assuming that there is no way to add average speed cameras into Waze? Or are people here asking for more "advanced" functionality such as Waze calculating you average speed within the zone?

In the second half of 2015 alone in London we now have very large areas of average speed cameras:

Just noticed this and already put in the zone for A13 Canning Town to Dagenham and the A100 Tower Bridge. So I will be able to see if it comes up on the App. ;) :D
