I've got a trailer behind my cars sometimes.
As I'm then only aloud to drive 90km/h, when 130km/h is normal, I sometimes generate a trafficjam.

It would be nice to set my maximum speed then, so Trafficjams are not created that are above (for example) 70 km/h.

I would leave a couple of slots for "custom" vehicle types to be defined by each community...

For example, we could set a "safe drive car" which would not be allowed to travel through the non politically correct "danger zones".

In all honesty, as someone who does databasing I am think the best answer would be to have people give as much information as they can (IF they want nothing annoying but on a settings page or something). That way there is a record of the type of vehicle/usage/speed/restrictions whatever and then with knowing all that information the data could be used to develop new vehicle related features and it would be easy to see what is priority based on number of users in type. Just my humble opinion.

I would absolutely use a bicycle mode. We already can designate bicycle/walking paths so why not allow navigation for them in a mode that isn't going give bad data to car drivers. Plus how cool would it be to see a little bicycle wazer going by on the map. I use this app for avoiding traffic and road hazards (or plain navigation if I don't know the way somewhere) but a bicycle mode would add additional functionality for me. I'm 30 years old and getting kinda fat I try to ride my bike like every other day because it's helping me get back in shape. Plus the town I live in is HUGE on bike riding so it would get mapped for bicycles in a hurry. Also many other navigation apps to offer these modes so it will help make sure Waze keeps on crushing the competition. :mrgreen:

I drive a commercial standard light duty pickup truck in New York City, I am not allowed on many parkways and roadways in the NYC area, and I am constantly monitoring my route on Waze to make sure I'm not on these roadways because there is no commercial vehicle option, I love the Waze app, and would be so happy if there was a commercial vehicle option.

Thanks Marc

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!)

What about fireman? and EMT?

When waze announces, that it will enable vehicle type selection in client, only then majority of community will start mapping restrictions for trucks or other vehicles. We already know what happened to house numbers.

Please people, just do not use waze with bikes or pedestrian. For now at least.
