You can also actively report accidents, police traps and other hazards you see on the road. Get road alerts along your route, and find the lowest gas prices around you shared by the community. Plus, Waze makes it easy to keep up with friends and contacts on the go. Say goodbye to pesky texts and calls (“leaving now,” “Stuck in traffic,” Almost there!”) and let Waze do the work for you.
