There already is a "Pothole" listed on the Hazard menu. This should be used to flag things out of the ordinary in your local area. For example, in the Northeast where we get lots of snow & ice & cold, we get potholes all the time, most are small and just give us a little bump, we only flag the BIG ones that can really damage a vehicle. In a place where potholes aren't an everyday thing, they may flag all of them.

Exactly. The regular "pothole" report isn't meant to notify the road maintenance crew of a divot in the pavement; unless it's already big enough to affect traffic, it shouldn't be reported. With that in mind, anything that would qualify as a "large pothole" would probably cause a road closure.
(The ability to report a road closure--and any approval process involved, and its possible effects on routing--has been discussed several times, and I believe is at least under consideration for the near future.)

Why don't you write "LARGE POTHOLE" or anything that you need driver needs to know in the "share details here..." area just before you post "pothole on road"
That's why we have that text field are that you can add text.
OR... you can take a picture
OR... record your voice as well.
