Informing other users of certain road hazards is now possible with Waze. Whether you are driving or planning your next travel route, you can use the Waze map and discover what is happening thanks to the community of drivers. I explain to you How can you give notices in Waze and improve the experience of other drivers.

With Waze you can warn other drivers about roadworks or potholes

Waze app

All of us who are drivers know of some street or road where we have to go slower than usual because there is a pothole that can play tricks on us. Also, many of us have driven through places we don't know and we have been surprised: sinkholes without warning, poorly paved roads or unexpected works.

And we will no longer have to look for apps that tell us where there are traffic jams. Luckily, the app that helps you behind the wheel Waze has released an update in its latest version that allows us to share alerts about these situations. This is something that the community has wanted for a long time since it was present in other apps like Social Drive and similar, but not in Waze.

We can do this using voice commands so that, if we are on the road while observing an unexpected situation, we can notify other drivers instantly. Now, this feature will not be useful if we are using Waze offline since it depends on real-time data provided by the community.

You should also know that These notices disappear after a certain time, specifically when the rest of the community indicates that that incident is no longer found. Which leads me to tell you that you can remove false notices or those that are no longer there. But, what ads do you find in Waze?

You should know that there is many different types of notices in Waze. The warnings you can give have to do with certain dangers on the road such as disabled traffic lights, construction sites, potholes, objects on the road, etc. But they can also be about the weather, lanes blocked due to accidents (you can even say specifically which lane is blocked) or errors on the map.
