Motorcycle mode : different traffic and time computation (all roads doesn't take the same time by car and by motorbike). In France, usable roads are the same for motorcycle and car.

1 - Truck (1st priority):
WME to provide choices of road type: Weak bridge/narrow road/low bridge...
2 - Bus (2nd priority):
WME to proivde choices of road type: Bus lane/no car lane...
3 - Train (no necessary)
4 - Bicycle/walk (NO):
The recent map is already complicated. We can have it in the future but it's better to have an other bicycle map using other WME.
Vehicle types will give us some benefit but just wonder it will cause routing problem as Toll road does :?

I would love to have navigation for the motorcycle, based on how "nice" the roads are. I know there are maps for Garmin that have scored the roads on their view or on their curves (we love good curves). You can use these when just riding for fun and it calculates a route from A to B using nice roads, rather than the fastest ones.
I know this would be a lot of work to implement and to have wazers score the roads based on these criteria, but a man can dream!

I was going to suggest adding a police car / squad car.

Some of us Wazers drive those and rack up a ton of miles and map edits. and some of us even post our own police reports. :)

So I guess the first thing to ask is a Waze mood for Police, so we can see you driving on the map and avoid you ;) (not kidding, a Police mood could make sense, ask it!)

It's not a bad idea at all. I personally like the idea of creating a police awareness. If people slow down and potentially create an opportunity for a decrease in crashes and what not I'm all for it.

I'd use a police mood. Why not?

In some jurisdictions, the police with whom Wazers concern themselves are more in the revenue business than the safety business (for whom case a "Police" mood would be self-defeating).

In some countries like Portugal the police is trying hard to clean up their "corrupt" image and are actively participating in the Internet, from supporting directly websites that collects all radars in Portugal (fixed and hot spots), as well as announcing in advance on their Facebook page the places they will perform stop/speed control operations.

The only thing remaining is to publish their unidentified vehicle license plates, but whoever really wants to know can easily discover them.

So I'm sure some of those cops will use Waze and would love to use the police mood.

They are heavily advertising on tv and magazines about "prevention". Of course there are always black sheeps looking for the ticket money at 3 in the morning.
