It would be great to be able to report icy roads on waze for fellow wazers.

Today I ran into a bridge icy before road situation. I went into the Hazzard dropdown to let drivers know of the danger and nothing fit.
Also, need a easier way to report potholes, my suggestion:
- Winter driving mode: one-touch pothole reporting, with the following options
- Right now
- 30 seconds ago (then Waze can estimate the location based on the vehicle's current speed
- 400m or 1/4 mile behind (this assumes that the driver has an okay sense of distance when driving, so the time delay may be better, but just a thought)
When driving, sometimes you cannot touch your smart phone's screen right away
Also, when in Winter Mode, display and warm the potholes reported by other users.
The delayed reporting options could also be used to report other road hazards.
Please consider dropping the number of reports within a certain time frame when bad weather or road conditions are involved. If roads are icy or snowy or foggy it's better that others know the extent and progression of those conditions on the route you're driving.
Sometime roads can be icy without the presence of snow. Adding "Icy" to the list of possible weather conditions would be helpful. Sometimes slick roads can sneak up on you. We just passed a bad accident that I posted on Waze that was due to icy conditions that a few miles back didn't seem to be to slick! Thanks for your consideration!

I am in Northeast U.S. adding the hazards described will be helpful. I am a limo drive and I have been observing a number of bad accidents because of potholes and icy roads. Both of which caused by the heavy snow this year.
We have some bad tire blowing Pot Holes, can it be added to the system...
