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.
@waze your app needs a major fix
ACCIDENT REPORTED: Waze reports a crash EB Schuylkill Exp (I-76) near Gladwyne. Backups begin just after the Conshy Curve. @KYWTraffic1060 @KYWNewsradio #KYWTrafficWatch
@aizadfahmy I dont think waze is the issue here
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
@big_al_00 @PanthersIHC I’ve not left yet but there’s no problems showing on Waze / Google Maps re A614
@chadooger Google map or Waze is the wave tho. But Apple Maps is working to get better
@mlroach @Momifornia1 Waze routes through GGP all the time. A quick fix would be for google to fix that
@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
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
@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.
The crash is just before the Rouge bridge and completely blocked. Take 96 to 94 W and avoid the area. @waze @waze_michigan
@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.
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-
I never want to hear my Waze say “crash reported ahead” EVER. AGAIN.
No Waze, pls, I’m not working my other job today. Pls just take me home
@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.

@waze HEY FIX YOUR PLATFORM! Third time the app has sent me down the wrong CONGESTED path making me late each time! 😡
@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.
@Uber_Support @DonCelentano Tell your drivers to use @Waze or listen to the riders for directions. Shut down Uber maps. Problem solved
@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!!
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.
@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
@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.
@THROWEDTOBIN It’s trash. I ended up removing maps & just using Waze, haven’t had any issues in months

@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."
@waze But the problem is when you set a route, the pointer doesn't change if you move the mobile
@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.
@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.
@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
Hai... REF error read here...SeaFB Board Don...val he... park waze... broken arms ... spin spin
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.
Theory: @waze is too successful. It no longer gets you there faster, just spreads out the problem.
@Code4Luke Oops hit send too soon. Waze same-same problem.
Waze, but for broken relationships. #TCDisrupt
@TownofCary @waze not working, fyi
@CityofDuvall @kcroads Yeah, @waze is still showing 124th as open. Their map editors are slow.
@dr_jfprice @JewishConnectiv @RebeccaJShapiro Jesus would rather direct himself to fix unstable furnitures while in Ikea. I recommend the Israeli Waze app. Highly reliable 😊
@sltk Waze is correct. I have submitted a report in Google Maps to fix this.
People who use Waze are honestly part of the problem. #traffic #LongIsland
@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.
Working without a mouse is like driving without Waze. P.S. - I lost my mouse.
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.
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 😭
EB I-10 closed at MP 89, near Tonopah, for a crash, No ETO #Waze
@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”
@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".
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
@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...
@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
@Chocol8peach @DoorDash Well, both Waze and Google map me home without issues, only does doordash drivers end up behind my house.
Of course, the easy fix here is to just put that theres no traffic here on Waze.
@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
@waze app isnt working for me at all. Keep getting errors. Restarted network, phone, cleared cache etc.
“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.”
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.
@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
@Bradley88Billy @waze @SpotterBrett I have it just never used it, working on it now
@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
