Don't limit the number of reports that can be submitted, limit the points given instead. Better to have more current info avail for drivers.
Today I exceeded my limit for the number of reports I could submit. I was not aware there was a limit, but this happened just as I was trying to report an accident on the freeway. I am on the roads early each morning and would think the more info submitted for the rush hour the better. Instead of limiting how many reports can be submitted, if abuse is a concern, why not just limit the points that can be earned from submitting points within a certain amount of time. I was very disappointed that I was not able to alert other drivers to the accident ahead of them...

I 100% agree! This is especially pertinent when driving through a large city such as London, where hazards are constantly popping up.
Throttling prevents the cretinous from stealing driver focus through their incessant reporting of vehicle at side of road. If parked car is partially in a lane it is evidently not at the side of the road.
Eliminate that report from announcing and you'll likely have a few more advocates
I agree. I am limited often and my reports are useful. Don't understand this. Accidents and road closures should always be allowed.
