New ways to report driving incidents on Google Maps


Google Maps has always helped people get from point A to B in the easiest way possible. Today, we’re adding more tools that reflect real-time contributions from the community so you can stay even more informed when you’re behind the wheel. Here’s what’s changing:

First, we’re adding the ability for people to report crashes, speed traps and traffic slowdowns right from their iPhone. This feature has been one of our most popular on Android, and we’re excited to expand it to iOS.

Jim and I discussed exactly this on Your Mac Life this past Wednesday evening. It’s one of the reasons why I prefer the Waze app over Apple Maps or Google Maps.
