Inside Waze's Global Citizens Summit

Join us at 12 p.m. ET Tuesday, April 14th for live coverage of Waze's meeting with the governments of some of the world's biggest cities.

Police departments across America are upset about Waze users reporting the location of police cars, while also loving its use for crowdsourced accident reporting. Reporter Neal Ungerleider is on site in Mountain View, CA, where Waze is meeting with city, state and municipal government representatives from around the world. 

The event begins at 12 p.m. ET Tuesday, April 14th.
    I'm on my way to an unusual conference at Google's headquarters in Mountain View: Government and aw enforcement officials from around the world are having a sit-down with Waze to talk about both how citizens use Waze and how the law can use the popular crowdsourced traffic app.

    In my home base of Los Angeles, Waze has been in the news for both residents reporting fake traffic accidents through the app in order to divert traffic away from their home streets, and police anger that Waze can be used to report the location of police cars. Today should be interesting.
