Submit a report in Waze

  2. Select the report type from the Report menu.

*Note: You must be near the event to start the report. If you lose internet connection while sending a report, Waze will save the report and automatically submit it once you reconnect to the network.

Follow our guidelines below to ensure accurate reporting in Waze:

  • Report as close to the actual hazard as possible.
  • Avoid excessive reporting or your account may be blocked for abuse. For more information check out our Help Center article.
  • Only report hazards seen in real time (not retroactively).
  • Don't report planned closures through the Reports button. Read about closures in the Major Traffic Events section of our website.
