Slowly but surely, Google Maps has been testing some useful reporting features similar to what’s seen in Waze. Now, it appears Google Maps is testing out new speed trap alerts with some users.

Back in November, Google was spotted testing out new reporting options for both speed traps and crashes along your route. A small button gave users the option to report either incident and warn other drivers....

I could see Waze being folded into Google maps. No sense to have 2 apps that do the same thing. Google maps is way better than Waze for navigation IMO.

I hope they share data. Otherwise some people will start to post reports on Google and waze info will be diluted.
I'm totally happy with Waze currently.

It's active on my Google maps, it's too easy though to report a crash instead of a speed trap because it's too close together

I noticed this too. I used the gps once and it alerted to mobile camera. I thought.... Excellent! It then asked me to confirm if it was still there.
They should keep this up!
