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?

Someone on these forums linked to this site in the past showing the consequences of over height vehicles :D

There should be a "no trucks" checkbox in the editor. That would be easy enough.

It would keep people like me driving oversized rental trucks out of places like the Holland tunnel the parkways of NYC with their 9 foot overpasses.

Could be like a speed cam or red light cam. It is a permanent fixture on the map that alerts the driver as they approach.

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.
