Speed limit signs are long term, and rarely change (less maintenance than gas price changes)
Speed limit signs are a fixed GPS location (they are in the ground!) **I understand the implications in the current editor and this may need to be segment based**
Consider how many gas stations are maintained on the map. Now consider the number of segments on the map. (Hint: segment IDs are eight
Speed limit signs should be able to be adjusted in the client (with approval)
is going to review the speed limits submitted for the thousands of segments in my small town alone--not to mention in the greater Boston area, the rest of MA, North America...?
I think this task is less work than Gas station crowd-sourcing, but I may be wrong.
Even if Waze were keeping track of prices at 100,000 gas stations, it would take a couple years
of daily fuel price updates to reach the number of speed limits that would have to be "approved" for just the first pass; i.e., not including corrections and additions.
I am bored because I just wait for URs so I have something to edit. If I had speed limit data to input, I would have something to do with my free time again
Now we're getting somewhere! If you have run out of URs, you need a larger area, preferably somewhere that does not already have an active AM. There is plenty
of work left to do on the U.S. map, without having to create more.
