Option to disable prompt "vehicle stopped on shoulder ahead".
Option to disable prompt "vehicle stopped on shoulder ahead". Very distracting and not useful information in my opinion. During my daily commute (42miles) through I-695, I-70,US-29, I-492 and I-270 there are up to 15! disabled vehicles and the prompts are getting truly annoying.
You can turn voice notifications on/off per each report type in Settings – Alerts&Reports – Reports.
please search for "provide an option to turn off the car stop" in the search box to the right and also vote for that idea... it's the same but it already has more votes.

I am not interested in cars on shoulders; it's a needless distraction.

This is SO distracting and useless information
It's helpful on narrow state highways but for my daily commute on multi lane freeways with large shoulders it's rarely helpful. Mostly distracting and annoying.

Totally agreed, this options is useless, people just use this to get extra points, 3 votes for you!
Please offer this feature. I drive about 100 miles round trip everyday on the freeways in Southern California. I get this alert about 40 times per day.
It is incredibly annoying. It is also pretty useless. It constantly draws my attention away from the road for something that is about 5 lanes away and nobody cares about.
The only reason so, so many people report it is because they get points for reporting things.
