I'm actually having a hard time finding more of these. Has there been a big cleanup done?

If the answer is no, if you can point me to areas where the smudge still exists, I can try a JS fix I've had in the works to fix these segments quickly. (Also, it may work for other no-city basemap state smudges as well. Toss one or two at me.)

Portola Valley cleanup was largely automated. It was also related to the thousands of Update Requests which stated "we don't think the city on this segment is correct."

I disagree, partly. If you enter your question, and the provided suggested links do not work, you get the option to click Email. The main problem is the sense of entitlement and instant gratification which causes most people who try to use that form to get frustrated that the first suggestion isn't the right one immediately. We wrote the steps required to try and give them the sense that they can contact support, but must go one step further than many are willing to do.

I did, but just told him to delete them. He read the PM.

At least all the farm roads are set as Dirt/4x4...

Parking lot crazy.

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.

Some of the highway segments have "CONST ZN" in their names and there are some GPS tracks following the road. This AZDOT indicates the road is being turned into a limited access highway.

Could this be an attempt to set it up as a split road but was never finished? Definitely poor form to change only one side and not add the other. At least they didn't set it to 1-way yet.

As far as the fields being mapped; I can probably help delete some of them if Waze can't roll back the changes. All I can say though is to check out the name of the town near the freeway link. :o

These are not, however, the same towns/cities, and should not be contained within the same polygon.

Postal zip codes - and the official city names they represent are the only way, currently, to ensure the above does not happen. Besides, unless at least one zip code within a township goes by the township name itself (often none, do), nobody really knows the area by the township name anyway, making it less useful in the traffic reports as well.

Perhaps in other parts of the country or world, actual political boundaries mark out areas that actually have unique names within their region/state. New Jersey, however, doesn't work that way...
Deal with it much like ROTW and include the county/province/state in the city name? At least I'm assuming the identical city names are in different counties within NJ.

USPS uses the county name around here.

Fill out a support form. Give them the user name and support can email him to email you. Worked for me, gave him some advise on how to edit and to read the wiki.

I get Canada in Chicago area. In Wisconsin, I have seen Minnesota. I just assumed if there is one segment in the area named wrong, it defaults to it.
