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

Please add DISABLED VEHICLE to the "In Lane" reporting option. This is especially important when traveling at high speeds on freeways. As much as I don't want to run over already dead ROADKILL or flatten some other OBJECT, it's far more important to avoid slamming into a stalled car at 65 mph.

For towing a trailer, driving an RV or just a taller vehicle it would be nice to add a "High Winds" hazard option. Many times I can wait it out or change my route accordingly.
Road closed: Also, this could be set as reported or unreported in case it is a personal need or preference.
Road closed is very important. If the only other route is a long distance then choosing routes will not select another viable route.
For the road closed. It would be useful to be able to mark the closed roads on the map in order to avoid them, also, to have the ability to program the time period when these roads won't be available. I believe it's easy to achieve with the map editor.
The rest of the users could receive a notification of the blocked track, so they can accept and even vote for the notification, so they can avoid the route and skip false warnings.
Bump alerts would be very helpful!
Hazard -> On Road -> Pot Hole (should remain on map until someone else updates saying its not there)
Hazard -> Shoulder -> Heavy Vehicle Stopped
Add: Hazard>On road>Car on road
It would be great if you could also add the new speed traps we have in france called "Radar Tronçon". These speed traps compare the speed average between 2 points.
1st Cam (register the car and the time) -----> a few kilometers -----> 2nd Cam (Register the time)
A computer compare the average speed calculated with the 2 registered cam with the speed limit.
It would better to use images instead of using a text list.

My wife also commented that "WATCH OUT" especially when you are over a quarter of a mile (or .4 Km) from something is a bit much. She suggests a calmer "Caution" warning.
And while on terminology, "My lane/Other Lane" is not as obvious, when travelling on a 7 lane Highway. Perhaps changing "Lane" for "Side" would be more appropriate.
Also ability to add different road signs using map editor would be really neat. So Wazers could also map road-signs where they are located. This is good option but will take a lot of effort on your part, as different countries have different road-signs. This is what I mean: http://www.gross.lv/lv/theory-topic.html?topic=31
Hazard -> Weather -> Solar Glare

Road closed - actually important, if there are temporary construction works going on

Police -> Mobile Speed Cams often seen here
Hazard -> On Road -> Water
We have puddles in the road a lot, would be nice to be able to let people know about potential issues
Also you can add - speed Breaker (we call them lying policeman)

Here in the Western New York, USA area, this would be a HUGE help in the winter. I was going to submit that report at one point and found out... THERE WASN'T ONE!

Thank you for your suggestions filsetp! I think that roadworks are already implented only they are called Construction.
Location of petrol stations is available for editing in Cartouche, I am unsure if they need to be reported as we report hazards for example. But you can report them as General Map error! And your area manager or you can then add them using Cartouche.
