I want to report hazards & closures even after i drove past it. like hold my finger on a location and report there.
I like to report things but by the time i open my waze app, i already drove a few blocks. And waze doesn't let me report anything 3 blocks back. Why can't I click on the map and pick the exact location?
Also, allow to do it on "map editing", maybe with a timer (warning off after "x" hours" for something temporary, or "fixed" (like a pothole).
This is a problem for me as well. I was parked not even a block away and could not report a road closed that I could see. It kept telling me to report the road I was sitting on was closed. Clicking on the spot of the map that you would like to report would be a huge improvement. Even if you are the passenger by the time you do all the clicks to open what you want to report you are away from the spot. So reporting an accident, hazzard, police etc. Is not exactly accurate to your location

Agree! Often IT'S NOT SAFE to try to report the condition/closure at that exact moment. It's better to pull over to the shoulder/etc. a few hundred feet ahead and then use the screen to report it. But since your app forces the location to be your current location, you're encouraging us to try to do it immediately.
If you are concerned about abuse, then allow the pin to drop within X feet/miles/whatever of current location.
In particular, for Road Closures, please don't assume about which DIRECTION we want to report. So often, I encounter a closure and have *already turned around*, or turned in the direction of the detour, before I'm able to find a safe place to stop and report the closure. But when I do that, the Waze client ONLY offers me the direction that I'm facing *now*, which is useless.
YES, this is fundamental to SAFELY report events ACCURATELY! !!
* Reporting Closures does allow selection -but doesn't provide all required marker selection locations
* During highway travel, a "temporary marker" is more appropriate at the time user initially taps marker, NOT when user taps SEND.
-Ideally, the marker could be slid back or forward along route path w/ a presentation of "how many seconds have elapsed" since passing the pavement of the "corrected marker".
Yes! The same for driving at freeway speeds. You're way past the incident by then.
