I would like to only see the ones on or near (road-wise near!) my route.

But I'd also like to stop it from doing anything just because I'm standing still for about 30 seconds. Can that time-limit be increased in the options?

I have to say, these incident notifications could very well be a pilot for location-based advertising, like say, offers from nearby businesses or upcoming ones along your route. I certainly hope not, but in all fairness, that would be one heck of a cash cow, and increasing socially-based revenues is a stated priority of Waze...

You haven't seen the Dunkin Donuts locations in Waze?

And those are just the latest. The first ones started last December. 2011.

I say Image

but yes - it would be great if there is an option to allow incident reports to be limited to my route only. and to turn it off. Ironically.... there is "Passenger" warning and yet... unrelated incident reports suddenly popping up is much more distracting and unsafe because we have to angrily and frantically click on tiny X to get it out of the way.

I hope you can implement this feature asap! all these little convenient things are what can make this Waze program even more awesome!
