"Both lanes" reporting option
Add a "both lanes" option when reporting traffic jams, hazards, and accidents affecting both directions of travel at the same time.
Yes - just came here to post the same suggestion. When we toggle between my side and other side, there could be a "both sides" and/or "median" option. Both sides may make more sense as others have pointed out; weather will not happen just on one side or in the median!! Haha

It would be helpful to be able to identify a specific lane closure right, middle, or left lane..

Things such as fog or rain almost always apply to both directions, it makes little sense to select a lane in those cases.
Bob Buranich commented
specially with Police!!! just because they are on one side does not mean they aint looking at both sides!
Completely agree! It would also be especially useful for police traps. Around here they like to sit in the grass median measuring speed from both directions.
Juan Alvarez commented
well, could be. Just not necessary. It works ok with one direction only for me
a very sensible and useful suggestion, a third tap of the my lane/other lane button should toggle both lanes
Having to report twice (hazards, speed cameras) just to have warning in both directions makes no sense!!
Both directions should be the default option! It's the more common use case.

• ALL LANES
• Which lane
most roads around here are more than two lanes
create special category for carpool lane(s)
This is especially needed for the reports on the police. On most roads in Russia police stop drivers who travel in both directions.

warning police in both directions is very important!

Completely agree with all comments below... Speed cameras is another one, in the UK - motorway Speed cameras are very often mirrored both directions. In all cases, by the time the report has been made for one direction, you are too far away to accurately report the other.
9 times out of 10, construction affects traffic flow in both directions and 10 times out of 10 it does for accidents as everyone slows down to look.
And also take into account reporting inside a roundabout. Other lane should be: the other "side" of the roundabout.
Also, definetely add both lines option for police and speedcams! New speedcams able to control both lanes on small roads (one-two lanes each direction).
Or - add new parametr into client "warn me even if police not on my line"
Label lane with direction?
Also combine this with set location for report

And how about calling it "direction" instead of "lane"? That confused me at first!
please embrace this suggestion. I often end up making two reports (one for each direction) as roadworks with temporary traffic lights and things like accidents invariably cock up both lanes of traffic
To piggy back on this suggestion, please add common problems in a drop down so I do not have to text while driving. Examples would include "slow traffic", "construction slowing traffic", "Accident", etc.
This still bugs me when I pass troopers sitting in the median getting both directions. I would want the pop-up going either direction. Seems like an easy fix on the client side not sure on the back end.
