More points than driving, and a potential addiction.

Basically nothing. After enough points you unlock a shield, a sword, and crown for your Waze character, but the points don't do anything important. You can see how many points others have and how you compare, but beyond that they have no value.

  • More points - as mentioned above
  • Better routing for yourself if you fix a problem on the map
  • The feeling of achievement when you realise that your improvements may help hundreds or even thousands of other Wazers
  • Involvement in a friendly community of like-minded editors
  • If you get involved enough, the opportunity to help shape the future of Waze

The points (and the shields/swords/crowns/editor moods) are really just hooks to draw people in - and, perhaps, a way of measuring how much work you've done on the maps. They're not actually worth anything.

Nevertheless there are always a few people who go to extreme lengths simply to accumulate points by any means possible. They rarely last long and, even if they don't get banned for cheating, they disappear again because they're not getting the true satisfaction out of doing a good job.
