Actually, leave all this alone for now...this is looking more like vandalism. I'm going to turn this over to the administrators.

I see a parking lot in red off the left which isn't my main concern right now.


I'm not seeing what you're describing here, so I assume someone fixed it.

However, what's your reasoning behind this mess?

Is there really some rule preventing traffic on Navesink from turning left onto Miller? But at the same time, traffic on Miller can make the jog to remain on Miller? The way it is here, the only instruction to traffic on both northbound and southbound miller when they hit Navesink is a "Keep Right". That's it.

Unless there's some really weird situation here, this is the wrong way to handle this intersection.

EDIT: Okay...I see your corrected link.

Looks like someone did some paving. Delete the red roads. They don't need to be there...it looks to me like everything else is correct in that link with the exception of the paving.

If you see any more of this, please report it to me or any other Champ and we'll contact the user in question.

The last two need to be corrected when seen - the sidebar shows a hint as to what to do if you select a node with a RevCon or SelfCon. Soft turns also need to be corrected, but only if you know for sure which turns are or are not allowed at a given intersection. Further information on Soft Turns, Reverse Connections, and U-Turn Connections can be found in the wikis.

The red highlight segments come up when new roads are added without putting in a city name and street name or checking the corresponding boxes saying it doesn't have a city or name. Maybe there's a script error that put them there and maybe they'll disappear just the same? Freeway offramps are usually kept under level 5 locks to prevent vandalism, so that would be my guess. Anyone here know if something's going on?


I am sorry...the first link was wrong. It was supposed to be the same location as the second link, with all of the red segments selected. My question is why did this user add all of these red segments, directly on top of the existing ramps? Every red segment lays on top of a previously existing ramp. In this link, I moved some of the unnamed segment so it exposes the existing ramp below.

It looks like a new editor created them a couple months ago. I'm wondering what the problem was that caused the admin account to update them this past week...and, why they didn't follow the best practices for parking lots.

I'll give it a couple days and clean it up if nobody else gets to it.

Because zip codes are ill-defined and ever-changing.

In my area they tend to have mailing addresses in the nearest city. So some cities have huge mailing areas but relativiely small city limits.

I don't understand why everyone is so opposed to zip codes? The vast majority of "mailing cities" in New Jersey as defined by zip codes are far better known than the township municipalities they are enclosed in.

Besides, what does everyone do in the states that do not have townships for the parts of each county that are unincorporated?
