Enforcement (Speed) cameras, red-light cameras, and dummy cameras are shown on this layer. Drivers can report camera location and type, and a map editor is required to confirm the existence of the camera. The precise location and direction that the camera is pointing is required before it will appear in the app. Confirmed cameras will pop up a visual and audible alert in the Waze app when approaching a speed or red light camera. Note: Cameras are locked at the editor's level who last modified or added the camera. Due to this, new R1 level editors are not able to modify cameras that have recently been modified or added by an R4 editor.
See [[Cameras]] for more information.
=====Select entire street=====
[[file:select entire street 2018.png|right]]When you click the link "Select Entire Street," or use the keyboard shortcut {{key press|Ctrl|A}} the editor will select all segments connected to the current segment with the same primary name, city, state, and country information. It will may also select some segments outside the current visible areaif the name of the segment is matched to the current one (e.g. "Alley" within a given city). For this reason, it is highly recommended to be cautious when using this feature and to ensure that what you are actually editing, is what you intended to change.  The "Select Entire Street" link and the multiple segment ID numbers are in the images to the right.
=====Address box=====
When you click on within the Pencil buttonaddress box, or tap press the shortcut key {{key press|E}}, the address box expands and displays more detail information and allows , while also allowing you to make changes to the country, state (US only), city , and segment name. <br />Next is where you can add or remove any alternate street name information. An alternate name, technically referred to as a "linked street," can be used for address searches, while primary name is used in navigation instructions. Alternate names can only be added if there is already a Primary name applied to the street segment(s).
Be sure to review the [[Road names/USA|naming convention used in your area]] before changing names.
If you run into an extreme case where you need to rename the city name on a large number of streets. Review the article [[Smudged city]]. The end of the article includes a link to a special form for converting a mass number of segments using the help of Waze staff in the database.
'''NOTE: Make sure to click the blue 'Apply' button before leaving the address modification, otherwise, your changes will not be saved!'''
=====General tab=====
*The '''Edit House Numbers''' button appears when there is only one segment selected.

Residential Place Points (RPPs) are an important tool for helping to route drivers to specific addresses in certain cases. These RPPs are only used for addresses only, NO NAMES.
Setting the proper address details will allow Waze to utilize their own internal search for landmarks which appear only in Waze and not in other search provider results.
