When I'm going high speed (above 90) it starts making police pop up randomly. It shows up as a small dot instead of a marker like if a user marked it. Does anyone know why that is?

Hmmm........... I have simular at times because I drive a dark grey Charger and when folks mark me on the roll, they pop up and it looks like I'm running over the markers.

Waze changes the "zoom level" as your speed increases so that you can see farther ahead. At a certain zoomed out threshold, those markers become smaller dots.
They should be as valid as any other marker would be.

Ahh, thanks. I thought they weren't real as there were no cops.

At least we hope they are "real" and not generated by Waze. :)
