The Waze client only allows you to report things such as Police, Accident, Hazard, Camera, etc., based on your current GPS location only.
This is to prevent abuse.

I understand the rationale--maybe it prevents abuse, but it also causes dangerous driving conditions if you try to make a report right while trying to figure out how to navigate around the closure.

A workable solution would seem to be, to me, anyway, to allow reporting a road closure in an area you've traveled within the past five minutes.

Waze made me 20 minutes late to an event today because it tried to route me around a 3-minute slowdown and tried to dump me back on the highway on a closed onramp. The way the intersection was configured, I had no choice at that point but to get on the other onramp going the wrong way down the highway to the next exit, where I had to exit, go one mile, make a U-turn, and then wait for 15 minutes for traffic trying to get on the highway. I thought I'd be a good citizen and mark the onramp closed so Waze didn't do the same thing to other drivers, but by the time I had gotten past the closure and could make the report (I wasn't driving) literally within 10 seconds of passing the closed onramp, the app no longer allowed me to make the report.

This is ridiculous. I don't really care about Waze "abuse" - Waze's system is that people confronted with road hazards or heavy traffic should take their eyes off the road and fumble with their phones (which, by the way, is illegal in most states). I simply won't report anything, and if I'm hit by a Wazer screwing around with his or her phone, I will be looking at whether Waze can be held liable.

That... makes no sense...

A user was playing on their phone, therefore sue the application that the user was using?

That's like saying someone was listening to the radio too loud, therefore we should sue the artist for the music.
