4.2.1.4-live info.png


Simply by driving around with waze running on their smartphones, drivers share real-time information that waze translates into road and traffic conditions. You can also actively report to the community on traffic, accidents and incidents, speed cameras, police traps, blocked roads and more. These are called "events". This information about events is collected and analyzed in real time to provide all wazers with the optimal route to their destination at any given moment.



The Events button displays a menu, organized by type of event, of the real-time live reports by wazers about problems in your area:

  • All -All.png gives you a list of all events reported in your area, listed by distance
  • Police -Police.png displays only reports of police cars/traps , listed by distance
  • Traffic -Loads.png displays only reports of traffic loads in your area (light / moderate / heavy / standstill) listed by distance
  • Accidents -Accident.png displays only reports of accidents in your area.
  • Chit Chats -Chit chat.png displays the chat and allow to add a comment:
  • Other -Other.png any reports of events that aren't in one of the above 3 categories.


From the list of displayed events, you can:

  • Touch an event to display its location on the map together with the full text of the report. To add your own comment to the report of this event (where allowed): touch the Comment button that appears under the text of the report. You'll get a virtual keyboard: type in your comment and press Done. Your comment will also be sent directly to the wazer who reported the event originally. If he or she replies, you'll get a message on your screen: "responding to you" with his or her reply.


4.2.1.7.2-traffic menu.png

  • Touch the arrow beside an event to bring up a menu of possible actions:
    • Show on map (the same option as touching the report of the event rather than the arrow beside it)
    • Report irrelevant – if you're in that location and the event reported no longer exists there
    • Add comment – brings up the virtual keyboard; type in your comment and then press Done.
    • Sort by recency - if you would rather see results by chronological order (latest first).

Waze is smart and will show you a list of matches in order based on the closest and importance of the place. If there are few matches, a Google Local Search will be used. So you can search for "toy shop" or "gas station" and Waze will let you select from the closest matches. You don’t have to enter a city but if your destination is not in your current city, you might want to enter a city as well. If Waze does not know the house numbers on your destination road, or you don't enter a house number, Waze will choose the middle of the road.
