WASHINGTON, June 20, 2016 — Fans of the WAZE (pronounced like maze) free GPS driving app appreciate its ability to highlight high traffic congestion, locations of lurking police and hazards on the road. All this information is reported real time by other WAZE users (hopefully a passenger, not the driver) traveling the same route as you.
WAZE is improving the app to help drivers avoid areas of high crime, which as we head off on our summer road trips to new areas, might be a good addition to our “keeping it safe” tool box. Next they need to combine it with the Potlines app so we know what the marijuana laws in that state are. (Do not drink, or smoke pot, and drive anywhere or anytime.)
Waze is the social navigation pioneer, leveraging mobile technology and a passionate global community to redefine expectations of today’s maps.
Waze is home to the world’s largest network of drivers who work together daily to outsmart traffic and save time and money. The app consistently recommends the fastest routes based on real-time driving and data from more than 50 million users. From traffic reroutes to low gas price alerts and relevant offers from favorite brands, Waze is one of the most comprehensive driving companions in the marketplace.
