I have twice flagged the same (or nearly the same just redrawn) segment as hazardous, and someone else has done it once too. The most recent version included in the title "THIS IS NOT HAZARDOUS!".
I provided details along with the flags to explain my reasoning although not sure whether that is just a waste of pixels. The segment is a narrow shared path with a number of corners that are blind due to terrain and vegetation. I don't recall ever having ridden along it where I haven't encountered pedestrian traffic, most frequently elderly people, or parents with prams.
From the other side of the argument, if someone flags your segment do you get informed? I'd be nice if my reasoning was put directly to the segment creator, even if there was some sort of review process.
I'll get some footage of the segment now I have new cameras, so at least you folk can decide if I'm being unreasonable.
