AUSTIN -- Help KVUE report Central Texas traffic with Waze.

Waze is a free, community-based traffic and navigation app that allows commuters contribute to traffic reports on KVUE News and KVUE.com. Waze enables drivers to build and use live maps, real-time traffic updates and turn-by-turn navigation for an optimal commute. Waze is very accurate because its information is provided by real-time users. The more users the better it gets.

When you download Waze, you not only get free navigation, but also become part of the local driving community in your area, joining forces with other drivers nearby to outsmart traffic, save time and improve everyone's daily commute. All you have to do is drive, so get involved today!

Download Waze to your smart phone from the App Store or Google Play Android Market. Search for the name Waze.

Then join the KVUE Traffic Trooperz group and be a part of our traffic team. You may hear us use your user name and information on air.

So, how does Waze work?

After typing in their destination address, users drive with the app open on their phone to passively contribute traffic and other road data. They can also take a more active role by sharing road reports on accidents, police traps, or any other hazards along the way -- helping to give other users in the area a 'heads-up' about what's to come.

In addition to the local communities of drivers using the app, Waze is also home to an active community of online map editors who ensure that the data in their areas is as up-to-date as possible.
