It’s been a few months since Google acquired mobile mapping service Waze and promised to bring crowd-sourced data about traffic accidents and other conditions on the roads to Google Maps.

Now it’s available. Waze incident reports about construction, road closures, and other conditions will start showing up in Google Maps for Mobile in the US, UK, France, Germany, and other parts of Europe as well as a few countries in South and Central America.

Meanwhile folks still using Waze now have Google search functionality and Google Street View.
