What we are aiming to do here is speed based alerters.

I don't want to zoom out and have to watch my screen. That's less safe than speeding. Alerts also include other important things, like debris on road, potholes, cars on shoulder. So making the distance alert customizable helps keep our eyes on the road and more alert earlier to be able to react. It's a simple request and feature. Anyone latched onto this being a speeding issue by telling commenters here to slow down and that asking for this is unnecessary isn't grasping the big picture. Please let us set alerts for farther distances (1 mile, 2 miles...)
