        Agreed! Was thinking it would be great to be able to report something that is in the median of a highway that would affect both lanes of traffic.

        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

        Things such as fog or rain almost always apply to both directions, it makes little sense to select a lane in those cases.

        specially with Police!!! just because they are on one side does not mean they aint looking at both sides!

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.

        a very sensible and useful suggestion, a third tap of the my lane/other lane button should toggle both lanes

      • lerkzlerkz commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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)

      • DimanZ1DimanZ1 commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is especially needed for the reports on the police. On most roads in Russia police stop drivers who travel in both directions.

        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.

      • bedobedo commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        And also take into account reporting inside a roundabout. Other lane should be: the other "side" of the roundabout.

      • AnonymousAnonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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"

      •  Seasider Seasider commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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

      • oldpilotoldpilot commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        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.
