I don't expect it to either, but I've seen several instances of the freeway names being used. The 91 Freeway, for example, has a few stretches that are labeled "Artesia Fwy", and segments of the 101 are named "Ventura Fwy" in the Valley. There are still a LOT of ramps where the signage emphasizes the freeway name... in this case do we use the name or not?
Also, issues like exit numbering... it's so rare to see exit numbers used in LA outside of the actual "EXIT" sign right at the ramp, that using exit numbers in Waze is pretty much useless. Even in a handful of situations where exit numbers COULD be useful (like at the 4-Level interchange where the 101 south is, confusingly, signed as the 5 south) the numbers aren't really used in the signage.
(On a related note, I should point out that, until yesterday, the Exposition Blvd offramp from the 110 was labeled simply "Exit 20B"... again a completely unhelpful name because no signs leading up to the exit have the exit name on it!)
I've also seen a lot of inconsistency regarding capitalization of Spanish names. I've seen streets labeled "el Molino", "del Amo", etc, which I've been correcting because I'm sure they should be capitalized. (They're capitalized on the street signs!) But for some reason there are a LOT of these streets around which makes me think that there is widespread disagreement about this.
