There is, but only if the alert applies to your road and direction of travel. Otherwise, Waze must assume that you are not knowledgeable enough to actually state it isn't there. Of course, that also suggests that the "Thanks" button should also not be there....
I wonder how difficult it would be to make the behaviour of clicking on a report act like gas prices already do. After all, we already see 'You are only allowed to report gas prices at the station', and that's measured by how far away you are 'as the crow flies'. The reasoning Waze put in for that is 'You're close enough to see the gas prices, so you can report', so one could say 'Why should reports be any different?'
'On clicking a report, how far are you physically from it?' if:
"Close", give the 'Thanks' and 'Not there' options or
"Not close", give the 'Comment' and 'Thanks' options.
I only mention this as a real possibility because we already know the functionality of whether something is 'close' is already built in.
