Informing WAZE of blocked roads is problematic
Informing WAZE of blocked roads is problematic. There should be just one quick button which only says blocked and is used when the road that WAZE recommended was not taken because it was blocked. Currently a four way intersection has four choices on which part is blocked but you cannot stop in the middle of a busy intersection to tell WAZE which of the four roads is blocked. Past the intersection, it is difficult to enter this data into WAZE while still driving. A single blocked button will let WAZE figure out which recommended road was not taken.

I use Apple CarPlay and periodically this is a major issue.
For example, last night I had to go to the office, I knew that there was a good chance that the most direct route was blocked due to an earlier major accident, however Waze routed me in that direction. When leaving my home there is a slightly different route that maybe adds 5 minutes, unfortunately I listened to Waze and couldn't turn left because of a blocked road and then faced a significant detour. When I hit the closed road the accident was under investigation and the road closed for 3-4 hours by that point. However because of the location, it is difficult for users to report using existing tools within Waze.
Waze should have a button to report an issue beyond the next intersection, based on the current routing.
