  • AlpertReyes Emily Alpert Reyes (@AlpertReyes) reported

    Next question is about Waze creating traffic issues. Ryu: this is a private tech where we can’t necessarily dictate, but have worked with City Attorney to bring a lawsuit against Waze.

  • kmillar815 Kristen Millar (@kmillar815) reported

    @waze your app needs a major fix

  • KYWTraffic1060 Traffic on the Twos (@KYWTraffic1060) reported

    ACCIDENT REPORTED: Waze reports a crash EB Schuylkill Exp (I-76) near Gladwyne. Backups begin just after the Conshy Curve. @KYWTraffic1060 @KYWNewsradio #KYWTrafficWatch

  • Sinatra_Z Zaidel Baharuddin (@Sinatra_Z) reported

    @aizadfahmy I dont think waze is the issue here

  • NickAloisio1 Nick Aloisio (@NickAloisio1) reported

    Waze is pretty much my go-to app just about every day. Traffic can get rough over here around the connector, and being able to avoid slow downs and accidents save me a lot of time. @JasonHWinston #GSUSocial2020

  • pmw_77 Pauline Wardle (@pmw_77) reported

    @big_al_00 @PanthersIHC I’ve not left yet but there’s no problems showing on Waze / Google Maps re A614

  • kyfinis859 #12 UK 20-5 (10-2) SEC (@kyfinis859) reported

    @chadooger Google map or Waze is the wave tho. But Apple Maps is working to get better

  • ysaw Stephen "😭” Woods (@ysaw) reported

    @mlroach @Momifornia1 Waze routes through GGP all the time. A quick fix would be for google to fix that

  • oceanisun Selena (@oceanisun) reported

    @waze “major car crash” I look up and the car is in my lane foot’s in front of me, in my lane with the drivers side door FACING me and it’s rear end a little in my right lane. s/o waze for real but I barely swerved deaths door this morning

  • SarahFrumento Sarah Frumento 🧘🏼‍♀️🚴🏼‍♀️🗣💚🚸 (@SarahFrumento) reported

    I'm sure that apps like @waze and @googlemaps are contributing to the problem of aggressive drivers cutting through my rural residential neighbourhood. #Saanich #visionzero #slowdown @Love30ca

  • dude463_waze dude463 (@dude463_waze) reported

    @PieterHumphrey @waze You should make a map error report near where the problem is. This has been a thing since HOV was introduced in Waze.

  • JB15TM JB15TM Waze (@JB15TM) reported

    The crash is just before the Rouge bridge and completely blocked. Take 96 to 94 W and avoid the area. @waze @waze_michigan

  • mariadkins92 ~ Mari Adkins 🤹 ~ (@mariadkins92) reported

    @TrevaskisL @ashareem Waze is now owned by google. google is a lot better than it was before. it's not given me any problems over the course of putting 17k miles on my new car.

  • ottoparxx alyssa !! (@ottoparxx) reported

    n e waze. so i like * but i also work with * ok and we’re both working on friday (valentine’s day) and i was gonna bring candy hearts for the staff bc they were super cheap. so. i just realised. i have the opportunity to give * candy hearts on v day. am i going to regret this-

  • grace_crews grace crews (@grace_crews) reported

    I never want to hear my Waze say “crash reported ahead” EVER. AGAIN.

  • SteelArmour_51 SuperDuperTyler (@SteelArmour_51) reported

    No Waze, pls, I’m not working my other job today. Pls just take me home

  • DylBryn BrynDyl (@DylBryn) reported

    @CleanAirDulwich @JohnNadin1 @lb_southwark @MumsForLungs @simonstill @southwarkcycle @PESAG1 @FossilFreeSWK @DulwichSociety @DulwichWheels @googlemaps @waze @TfL are aware of what this is doing to local roads, but the issue is much larger and requires more coordination with the algorithms to prevent these apps dumping traffic into these non-main roads. This isn't addressed by the council I think, but @TfL could.

  • ShopGirl1597 Ivonne D. ♏️👩🏻‍🎓👰🏻🐶🦜 (@ShopGirl1597) reported from Houston, Texas

    @waze HEY FIX YOUR PLATFORM! Third time the app has sent me down the wrong CONGESTED path making me late each time! 😡

  • Rapidforums aRadicalMind (@Rapidforums) reported

    @tarunsmehta I faced similar problems in US with Google maps. It asks me to take right turn into a oneway oncoming traffic. Terrible So I switched to Waze. Though both have same parent company, both operate independently I think.

  • farrishopkins Farris Hopkins (@farrishopkins) reported

    @Uber_Support @DonCelentano Tell your drivers to use @Waze or listen to the riders for directions. Shut down Uber maps. Problem solved

  • ThreeFDDI JT 🐍 (@ThreeFDDI) reported

    @baldwifiguy One time I followed Apple Maps to an elementary school we were working at and it routed us to the neighborhood behind the school saying we had a 10 min walk through the woods to get to our destination. Never again... Long live Waze!!

  • helloandrewc Andrew (@helloandrewc) reported

    I'm being spoiled by Waze because the traffic was super slow and I honked at the car in front of me only to realize they were going slow because there was an accident on the shoulder. Oops, usually the data tells me that.

  • PhilipFurlong2 Philip Furlong (@PhilipFurlong2) reported

    @volvocars you should be embarrassed by the navigation system I have a 2017 R design Lux-Nav S60. I tried updating errors via @here but it isn't userfriendly and can't be done while driving. @waze forgive me for not using you over the last 3 mths

  • thearchiived Archiived (@thearchiived) reported

    @elonmusk what is the possibility of a future collaboration with Waze, having the car detect and automatically report things like objects in the road and traffic, automating that process and taking human error out of the equation.

  • KangoftheCrew Big Kang 🇳🇬 (@KangoftheCrew) reported

    @THROWEDTOBIN It’s trash. I ended up removing maps & just using Waze, haven’t had any issues in months

  • JTridesbicycles Jon Tate's new freedom and new happiness. (@JTridesbicycles) reported from Nashville, Tennessee

    @motorisms @HaskellMurray @CarHelmets @KostelecPlan @BrentToderian @waze There it is. #CarCulture is mindless violence. Predation of the marginalized. (Narrators voice) "A race to weaponize what I'm driving so that it beats what you're driving. And if you can't afford what I'm driving ... well, then that's your problem."

  • MrIvvv Iv (@MrIvvv) reported

    @waze But the problem is when you set a route, the pointer doesn't change if you move the mobile

  • vtraveller vtraveller (@vtraveller) reported

    @lardychap Joy. Just checked the M11/A505. Now appears to be open despite Google Maps claim it isn't. Waze has caught up though. Stopping those roads really motivated them to solve the problem.

  • DeclanGMcBride Declan McBride 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🏳️‍🌈 (@DeclanGMcBride) reported

    @mrpaulaitken I’d download another mapping app, like Waze, and see if that puts your location there as well. Then you’ll know if it’s a hardware issue with the GPS, or a software issue with Google Maps.

  • HelloNNewman Bala 🕉️ (@HelloNNewman) reported

    @anexcommie @Kishoreciyer1 @JumbuTweeple @shreikanth @RajeIyer @almightykarthik @rajanagk @Raamraaj3 @KumarSarangapa1 @swamisaranamm @chittukuruvi4 @drtvasudevan I have seen this happen with Waze and social based real time app for driving directions. You can report slow down or incidents. So to prevent people from driving via residential streets some report slow down, incidents so it starts to reroute traffic

  • HABS_Now HABS.Now (@HABS_Now) reported

    Hai... REF error read here...SeaFB Board Don...val he... park waze... broken arms ... spin spin

  • savagesooner SavageSooner🇺🇸 (@savagesooner) reported

    Got stopped today. The officer laughed when I admitted to using my navigation to avoid police. Said he could see the error in my waze.

  • curtisbronzan Curtis A. Bronzan (@curtisbronzan) reported

    Theory: @waze is too successful. It no longer gets you there faster, just spreads out the problem.

  • bella_velo 💫Kelsey Merkley 💫 (@bella_velo) reported

    @Code4Luke Oops hit send too soon. Waze same-same problem.

  • sadtcdisrupt Sad Disrupt (@sadtcdisrupt) reported

    Waze, but for broken relationships. #TCDisrupt

  • 16Cubs Sean Gill (@16Cubs) reported

    @TownofCary @waze not working, fyi

  • clutchplatedude Lutz Kretzschmar (@clutchplatedude) reported

    @CityofDuvall @kcroads Yeah, @waze is still showing 124th as open. Their map editors are slow.

  • syaccoby Shmuel Yaccoby (@syaccoby) reported

    @dr_jfprice @JewishConnectiv @RebeccaJShapiro Jesus would rather direct himself to fix unstable furnitures while in Ikea. I recommend the Israeli Waze app. Highly reliable 😊

  • markrsmith Mark Smith (@markrsmith) reported

    @sltk Waze is correct. I have submitted a report in Google Maps to fix this.

  • kswensi Kelsi Swenson (@kswensi) reported

    People who use Waze are honestly part of the problem. #traffic #LongIsland

  • hunter_thomas_m Hunter Thomas Myers (@hunter_thomas_m) reported

    @Uber @Uber_Support your Navigation sucks and makes me late all the time. Your app will quote a 6:50am drop off time and I’ll get dropped off at 7:30 because your driver uses your app instead of @Google maps or @waze. Y’all should fix this! It’s getting old.

  • Real_VinceChin My World in a Tweet (@Real_VinceChin) reported

    Working without a mouse is like driving without Waze. P.S. - I lost my mouse.

  • bermaniastudios Moshe Berman (@bermaniastudios) reported

    5/ I’m also pleased because their app is a web app with GPS entitlements. My iphone has browser whitelisting and their “app” is blocked. I emailed support and they asked if I whitelisted Waze. 🙄 Much of their market will have the same filter, thus the same issue I have.

  • AphiweNxumz Phiwe (@AphiweNxumz) reported

    My man just bagged a major deal that he’s been tirelessly working on for months. Yoh I’m crying, we prayed and fasted for this, waze wamuhle Thixo way’phendula imithandazo yethu 😭

  • Waze_Arizona Waze Arizona (@Waze_Arizona) reported

    EB I-10 closed at MP 89, near Tonopah, for a crash, No ETO #Waze

  • LucyFacer Lucy Facer (@LucyFacer) reported

    @psimonk @HamandHigh @london_cycling Six months on and this problem is actually getting worse as more drivers circumnavigate Highbury corner using Waze and SatNav.

    @BoredAstronaut The “Waze problem”

  • millard3 Millard Ellingsworth (@millard3) reported

    @googlefi Not a call issue. Phone shows full strength on network but can't open link associated with a notification, for example. Or can't reload a web page. Waze or Spotify say "No network".

  • KCBSAMFMTraffic KCBS Radio - The Traffic Leader (@KCBSAMFMTraffic) reported

    Westbound #BayBridge after #TreasureIsland Tunnel, good news: Injury crash involving several cars has been CLEARED. Bad news: Traffic remains solidly backed up thru the #OaklandMaze, onto WB I-580 from Hwy-24/I-980. #KCBSTraffic #Waze

  • jkbckr Johannes (@jkbckr) reported

    @forwardsecrecy @J0hnnyXm4s Yep, if rerouted emergency vehicles are the issue: why are they getting their routes from an intransparent, obscure data source like GMaps. Tampering with real-time traffic map data is an old trick from the early Waze days...

  • Mexicanity Héctor Octavio (@Mexicanity) reported

    @GreatDismal Some neighbors tend to organize fake traffic issues on Waze, where one starts the report of an accident, then 3 others verify it. That way, they avoid traffic being redirected through their streets. This method is amusing too

  • petermessana Peter Messana (@petermessana) reported

    @Chocol8peach @DoorDash Well, both Waze and Google map me home without issues, only does doordash drivers end up behind my house.

  • NatSecElitist Tony Stark (@NatSecElitist) reported

    Of course, the easy fix here is to just put that theres no traffic here on Waze.

  • krenshar_posts illuminati mess (@krenshar_posts) reported

    @charlesv It feels like 5 years ago when waze was working on filtering out false accident reports made by neighborhoods trying to keep people out of them, would've been a good time to try this. I would follow up guessing the maps product team has been working on this but..... it's google

  • BlackWidowR8R 🕷Black Widow🕸 (@BlackWidowR8R) reported

    @waze app isnt working for me at all. Keep getting errors. Restarted network, phone, cleared cache etc.

  • TommyDeanWriter Tommy Dean (@TommyDeanWriter) reported

    “The people in this neighborhood almost organize a Waze campaign. It is the app’s fault there is cut-through traffic. It is all the app’s fault. They plan to report the road closed each day—a tree down, a crash, flooding. They plan to take turns making daily reports on the app.”

  • WazeMaryland MD Waze Volunteers (@WazeMaryland) reported from Owings Mills, Maryland

    ‘Vehicle stopped on the shoulder’ could be a real safety issue, which is why @Waze alerts users to these kinds of hazards. Be sure to #SlowDown #MoveOver for emergency or service vehicles working on the shoulder.

  • Chocol8peach A Happy Chick (@Chocol8peach) reported

    @petermessana @DoorDash Fyi as Dasher, we have the option to use Waze or Google Maps. The Dasher app does not give us directions. This is not a Door Dash issue

  • pever17 Patrick Everett (@pever17) reported

    @Bradley88Billy @waze @SpotterBrett I have it just never used it, working on it now

  • Mammondy MartaAH (@Mammondy) reported

    @PJVogt @replyall I can confirm that my neighborhood has issues with cut-through traffic and ppl swear it's gotten worse bc of Waze and the listserv actually started talking about if there were ways to collectively make the spots less convenient so that the apps stopped sending people through
