Well, that’s pretty clear with traffic jam: if we know that there’s a traffic jam we’ll probably take an alternative road, lighten the problem instead of making it worse by lengthen the queue.

When an accident, hazard, speed traps, traffic jams or police burst into scene, you can actively alert other users through Waze. In the end, you’ll save time, reduce stress and even keep money that was destined for fines.
Waze’s navigation through apps is kind, pinch to zoom, flick to rotate, tap on wazes to view detailed info like traffic jam, cheapest gas station on your route or even meet-up points. It’s hands-free, voice-operated system allows drivers make us of the app with no risks.

It keeps "searching network" and doesn't find the route.
APP excellent. I use all the time to get the traffic informations of my city and get the best way.
I like that there are a lot of active members even as far out in the country as I live. I just wish however there was a way to restrict people who consistently report fake stuff. Other than that its great. Keeps me informed about all kinds of road condit
Great app thanks
