On a single road with both directions of travel, if someone reports an incident for their direction does the pop-up alert only appear for that direction? For things on the shoulder that makes sense, but for Police who can watch both directions or things that are in the middle of the road, both directions of travel would want to be alerted.
The pop-up only appears for the direction indicated in the report. There is currently no method (other than submitting multiple reports) to get the pop-up to display in both directions.

Have we confirmed that roads with named directionality are decoded properly, e.g., "I-80 N" and "I-80 S" are the same road for incident reporting purposes?
I do not believe that this actually works (at least in North America). If you submit an "other lane" report on a split road (i.e. a one way road), I do not believe that anyone will get the pop-up.
