Reporting closures from further away
Closures can currently only be reported if you're right next to the road. I can't always report it because I'm on a roundabout or having to redirect quickly so as not to cause traffic. However, I can pull over a road or two away to report it but the app doesn't allow this since I can only report it if I'm on or next to the closed road.
I think this is an essential feature that needs to be added because sometimes there aren't diversion signs and I have to find my own way around it without waze because it'll tell me I can go down the closed road when I can't.
Consider combining with thread https://waze.uservoice.com/forums/59223-waze-suggestion-box/suggestions/38396974-possibility-to-add-road-closure-on-carplay

I agree! It may be safer to report an incident when I am at a convenient place to stop, but I can't give an accurate report because I am not right there! I live half a mile from a stoplight, and ended up reporting a broken light in the wrong place because I didn't want to stop in the middle of traffic.
Already a feature
Turn on your visibility
The report button should appear
If not long press the screen near your position and route to it.
Unless your asking to report something at a location on your drive, then yes agree a better solution is desired.
