Hi Brian,

The speed limit has been left at 80kmh and it is an area that regularly has police cars parked watching the traffic.

Is that the right permalink? I don't see any village at the location the permalink takes me to in WME. There are several places called Inch around the country, so I want to make sure I'm looking at the right place.

In any case, did you report the points in the app while out on the road, or did you try to change them in the editor? When we originally set the speed limits on all R- roads around the country, we typically used any signs that were visible in street view, but naturally street view images can be out of date. Google seem to have updated a lot of street view images in the last year, which is handy for this, although if you have local knowledge of the locations of speed limit signs, that's even better.

It must be very small indeed :) There's no Waze city created at that location either. Does it have a pub, school, shop, post office or, at least, placename signs at the start and end of the village? If it has any of those things, then we should create a city in Waze so it shows up properly on the map and can be set as a destination. (there's already an "Inch" elsewhere, so this one would have to be "Inch (Clare)")

I also don't see the reports you created at that location, even if they have been closed. Do you remember the user name of the person who closed your reports?

Would you mind putting map comments at the locations where the speed limit changes, saying what the limit should be at that location heading west and heading east (assuming the limit change is on the R474). Unfortunately the street view images there are from 2009, so a lot might have changed since then.

thanks!

Presumably it's this Inch here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inch,_County_Clare ? We'll add it to the map in its own right. I didn't notice the school and church when I had a quick look in the editor.

I'll ask Yanis to take a look at this thread. Maybe there was a misunderstanding in the wording of your reports.

If you remember where the locations are you could create a pair of map comments in the editor. That'd save you a journey if you don't usually drive that way.

Excellent.

Do you know if there are village name signs anywhere on the approach to the village?

I've set the city name of the segments that you've set to 50km/h to be "Inch (Clare)". That'll get the village to appear on the map, but with boundaries defined as the point where the speed limit drops to 50.

Do you think this is a reasonable assumption for the location of the edge of the village? If there aren't name signs, then I usually use the point that the speed limit drops to be the edge of the village.

Good stuff; thanks. I didn't have time yesterday to dig through the SV view to find them. I've extended the village boundaries to these points.

Hi David,
It is a very small village - the satellite image looks good to me.
I reported it while on the road - one report at each end of the speed restriction - It is a level 2 road so I cannot edit it.
regards,
Brian.

I found the google streetview images of the speed limit signs and updated the map.
I had to google how to split the road sections to get the speed limits correctly placed - I added roads/junctions, then deleted them again. Hope this was the correct approach.
