Warnings vs. Hazards

Postby staceybassoon » Wed Nov 14, 2012 7:43 pm

So I know we all like to report the "car stopped on shoulder," but I'm wondering if maybe we can have a way to report a hazard vs. a warning. For example, this summer I was driving to northern Michigan when we came across a huge mess of concrete that had spilled out of a truck and had given multiple people flat tires. Well, of course I reported it as an "Object on road," but when it comes up in navigation, it looks the same as a "car stopped on shoulder" would. Clearly the object on the road is way more worrisome. What do you think?

It looks the same unless it is the alert pop-up which appears at 2000ft before you get there. The hazard icon in the alert pop-up is specific to on-road or on-shoulder.
