If you intended to avoid police checks during confinement, it is a failure.
Waze is a particularly effective traffic tool to avoid traffic jams on a road trip. But this application for smarphone also presents other interests, such as that to report the position of speed cameras and police checks. A new update has just deactivated this last function on Waze, however.
The goal is not to harm the rules of containment made mandatory in France since last week, in order to minimize the spread of the coronavirus in the country.
A temporary measure
Waze says the function will return once the containment rules are removed in the country. Remember that since March 17, you can only drive by car with a derogatory travel certificate and for certain reasons only (work, purchase of essential goods, imperative family travel or administrative convocation). The total duration of this confinement period could exceed the full month (it will probably be renewed in a few days).
