In Paris, someone collected all the spectacular crashes of just one tunnel in Paris.

No matter how bad all these crashes are, I do not see why Waze should generate a REPORT for that. Maybe the original poster wanted to suggest that Waze could maintain a "Max.Headroom"-value per segment?

Er... Do those values tend to change very often?

My suggestion is to have reports specifically for truck drivers to alert other truckers of clearances and bridge weight limits on local roads.

Wow, 7 foot 10" is some seriously low clearance. The current Mercedes-Benz Sprinter wouldn't fit under there let alone that camper conversion that got munched.

Of course by that point it may be too late to take the over height detour which may be established.

In any case, I think a similar request must already exist on User Voice.

"The ideal GPS app" would include in it's list of features, support for vehicle height, length, width, empty and full weight, number of axels, turning radius, and fuel type. Everything above would need to be part of the map and routing system.

Someday London or LA may pass a law restricting access to electric drive (phev/ev/hydrogen) only in parts of the city, and everything else is a common restriction today.
