Don't know how but it would be cool to post traffic data from https://www.waze.com/livemap info on GGS maps. :)

It does not look like Waze has any public APIs for that.

Waze now is a Google company. All Waze traffic data appears also on Google maps (on your phone you can see when accidents are reported a comment that the data came from Waze). Google traffic is available through GGS if you use Google maps.

I wonder if we could ever use a Waze map as a map plugin, lot of roads around here are outdated on google, Waze seems to be the only one up to date.

Waze still doesn't seem to expose a public API for their maps.
Technically it would certainly be possible to create a plugin though, licensing issues aside...
(They use open source tech like OpenLayers and Leaflet to display the web map for example).

Have you compared the map in your area with OpenStreetMap? (not same as Waze but still crowdsourced).

Looks quite up to date, I may have to investigate this further..
