Confidence and reliability scores

Every alert sent to Waze users nearby gets a confidence score and a reliability score. 

Confidence score

Each alert receives a confidence score based on how other users react to the report - either with a “Thumbs up” to indicate the alert is accurate, or “Not there” if the report is irrelevant. The score ranges between 0 and 10, and a higher score indicates more positive feedback from Waze users.

Reliability score:

Every alert also gets a reliability score based on the experience level of the reporter.
Wazers gain experience levels by contributing to the map, from level 1 to level 6. The higher the level, the more experienced and trustworthy the Wazer. The score ranges between 0 and 10, with 10 being the most reliable.
