Tell us Your Amazing Waze Story!

Every day we're amazed at the stories we hear about how Waze came through in a crunch.

In the past several months, we've heard how Waze has guided women in labor to the hospital with the best route. Waze has also allowed parents to get to their children's performances in time and even helped drivers avoid some big accidents in the nick of time. These stories make us feel pretty great and we want to hear more!
That's why we're announcing a new Waze initiative called Waze User Stories. Here's how it works:

We want you to tell us your amazing Waze story here:

At the end of the month, we'll pick a couple of stories we find particularly inspiring and feature them on our blog. We'll even send the winners some swag for our favorite entries.


So how about it Wazers? Got a great story about how Waze helped you out on the road or in life? We wanna hear it! Also, feel free to send any accompanying pictures to

  1. I wanted to suggest that you have a couple of different notices for drivers. I love using ways and enjoy that it is easy to navigate around the app, however I drive every morning and would love love love to know where all the dang school zones are, i seem to get caught in 15 mile an hour traffic every morning no matter how I route!! LOL Also in addition to a hazard, maybe a construction zone. I see the hazard on waze and am either looking for debrie or a stalled car when I really have a mile of construction in front of me. COngrats on the award, these are just a couple of my suggestions. Thanks!!

  2. Why fine print? That is intended to obfuscate and obscure. Do you want us to understand the terms and conditions or don't you? Why not re-post this is normal-size letters?

  3. O waze, apesar de pouco tempo instalado no celular já me ajudou e muito.

    Depois de um dia de trabalho intenso e ter entrado de madrugada, a única coisa que queria era chegar em casa e descansar. Se não fosse o Waze me avisando que havia um acidente a alguns quilômetros de onde me encontrava ficaria parado por mais 4 horas no trânsito, como alguns amigos. Pelo aviso tive chance de mudar meu rotineiro caminho e chegar no lar no mesmo horário de sempre. :)
    Obrigado ao Wazeeeeeeee

  4. I used waze to go on vacation in the south of France, I traveled 800km in one day, and thanks to waze I avoided a lot of radar, and also avoid the jam this because of snowstorms in the mountains, and thus earned hours in the sun thanks to you. thank you

    je viens d installer WAZE sur mon tèlèphone portable et je viens vous demander comment il faut faire pour avoir un signal sonore à l' approche d un radar ou de la police
