I use waze with my scooter and in my hometown, Milan, scooters and motorbikes are allowed to run on most bus and taxi lane. It would be great if waze will recognize bus and taxi lanes allowed to other categories of vehicles.

Better don't.
You will create fake traffic jams and removed the correct ones.

I'm sure it's been discussed before, but unless those "dedicated" lanes are at least 150 ft (50 m) away from any other lanes moving in the same direction, limits on cell phone location accuracy would prevent it from working right. As such, speed metrics are probably gathered from both lane types (bus/HOV vs. regular) and aggregated together for an average (read: expected) speed of the whole road.

Hi,

I'm a new Wazer from Hampshire, UK

I've read some of this post with interest. Whilst I do not drive trucks or goods vehicles as they are officially referred to in the UK, I do work in a distribution environment.

It has probably been mentioned before but here different speed limits apply to different vehicle types. See this official UK goverment page for the full table https://www.gov.uk/speed-limits.

If these settings could be implemented it would benefit the goods vehicle drivers as they would be planned to primary routes as the speed they can travel is higher.

Hey,

I'm using waze with my private "normal" car and sometinmes with a camping car. In this second usage, it would be wonderful that Waze app manage seveal kind of vehicle. So, navigation will take into account height limitation when camping car mode is activated.

Thanks in advance.
