Safety and incident logging on Strava?
Your product has a great following and has become the defacto standard for activity tracking/planning. However, the one thing I feel is missing is an ability to share with others a map driven database where specific safety issues can be logged. For example, areas known to have dog problems, dangerous blind spots, and points where cyclists and/or runners encounter or observe dangerous or hostile environments . The reporting should not support reports of petty things such as "buzzing", "fogging/smoking", or otherwise obnoxious behavior. It should be limited to static locations in which "real" dangers exist and can be geographically mapped. Such a feature will provide a much needed "heads-up" but more importantly, will provide a community supported history of problematic points. For example, animal control rarely acts on a single report of aggressive dog attacks. However, with a credible location-specific history of this problem in which there have been multiple reports, they are obligated to act. Areas with serious blind spots, steep descents with dangerous curves/conditions should also be identified as not everyone may not be aware of these when planning a route. The ability for those reporting these hazards to include links to photos/videos should also be supported. Obviously this sort of thing can become quite cluttered over time, so having it as an optional layer or a separate feature for those wanting to refer to it would be a better way to roll it out. I have proposed this to competing sites too. Thanks!
