Because not all roads have shoulders wide enough to accommodate all widths of vehicle. In these cases it helpful to know what kind of vehicle is on the shoulder (and if its partly on the road or not); especially so in low visibility areas (such as on bends or the brows of hills) or in low visibility weather conditions (such as heavy rain or fog). Also, slowing down for a motorbike which has stopped on the shoulder of a freeway can be a little excessive.

It would be nice to have a button on side for accident, traffic and police to just tap instead of pulling up a menu while driving.

It used to be similar to that, but too many buttons make for shrinking visible area. Traffic can be reported by swiping the report button to the left. Possibly a similar swipe diagonal and vertical for the other two could be used.

It is, but not in the text interface. Not sure why it isn't there. "vehicle stopped on road" is a voice command.
