Google and Waze today announced that incident reporting has come to the Google Maps app for 46 new countries and territories. Now you’ll have a clearer idea as to where accidents, road hazards, police, and other incidents are along your route. It’s unclear which areas are seeing the update so we advise checking your notification bar or Google Play downloads for more details.

If you’re interested in submitting an incident for others, you’ll want to download the Waze app from Google Play Store.


Have you already encountered incidents in your travels? Did you find the alert to be helpful?
