    Quick Reroute with user input from main map

    I would like to see a quick reroute option on the map area, lets say you are in traffic and you would like to reroute out of that area to get to your destination, currently I keep getting navigated to the same route or need to start driving and ignore the suggestion to turn around to get away from the traffic.

    It would be nice if I could just click on the arrow (your car) in the navigation screen and drag right or left to let Waze know to reroute in the direction I would like to get away from the traffic in. Then it could reroute away from that area and not just tell me to turn around. This will make it easier to reroute with less interaction.

    This came to me as a feature while waiting in traffic after a football game, none of the routes had me quickly leaving that area other than just picking a road and having it recalculate on it's own.

    If I could just tell it the direction to reroute me ahead of time while in traffic and not wait for the loading that happens sometime it would be great. Would be a good feature when in a bumper to bumper area.

    Maybe have a menu pop up when you touch the car and drag the direction you are leaving the traffic into that can prompt for things like, backroads, avoid road, route around next mile. Just a thought.
