Minor corrections in response to feedback
'''Level 4+ editors:''' are reminded that the map editor currently defaults to "Auto" lock level, which sets the lock to the level of the editor - that is, too high. ''Please check all cameras you see and adjust them to Level 3 so they can be managed by L3 editors, unless protected due to repeated vandalism or incorrect edits.''
Only fixed cameras for normal traffic are mapped in Waze, with the exception on average . Average speed cameras for heavy vehicles noted are not mapped, as explained below. Users are encouraged to report mobile speed cameras via the Waze app as "police speed traps".
For global information, please see the [[Cameralegacy:Cameras|global cameras]] (old wiki) page.
==Dual Red-light/Speed Cameras==
Cameras that check for speed and red light offences, sometimes called Safety Cameras, require a specific configuration from editors as follows:
SA and NSW have a joint network for monitoring the average speed of heavy vehicles over long distances - the '''Safe-T-Cam''' network. NSW also has '''average speed cameras''' which monitor the average speed zones for heavy vehicles only. Neither of these are included on the Waze map as they don't apply to the intended Waze user - the daily commuter. In any case, we have no way of indicating that the speed zone applies to heavy vehicles, nor do we have a way for the user to indicate that he/she is driving a heavy vehicle.
To discourage future editors from adding these Average Speed Zones back in, please add a map comment at the beginning (at least) of the zone:<blockquote>''ASZ for Heavy Vehicles only''</blockquote><blockquote>''This is the start (or end) of an Average Speed Zone for heavy vehicles only. We do not map these, or their associated speed cameras, in Waze. Further information at <nowiki>https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/Australia/Main_Page and Cameras</nowiki> and the forum - https <nowiki>https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=254566</nowiki>''</blockquote>Below is a possible response editors can use in response to URs:<blockquote>''Thanks for your camera report! This camera only monitors the average speed of heavy vehicles and, therefore, are is not mapped in Waze Australia per our editing standards. For more information, please see <nowiki>https://wazeopedia.waze.com/wiki/Australia/Main_Page and Cameras</nowiki> and the forum - https <nowiki>https://www.waze.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=56&t=254566</nowiki>''</blockquote>
