Use of PLR vs Private Rd

Postby karlcr9911 » Wed Jan 14, 2015 7:13 pm

The wiki has been updated for clarification of when to use PLR vs Private Rd - specifically relating to Apartment Complexes, Trailer Parks, Schools & Universities.

PLR should be used for these installations except when Private Rd is explicitly appropriate due to a gate/guard shack, etc.

Should we add "Cemetery" roads?
Should they be Private or PLR?

It can be a combination, or one or the other depending on local practice and real world situations.

I would like to see a rationale for how we decide when to use each. So far, we only have examples, which are not tied together by a common pattern.

The best I could do is: PLR is used for all actual parking lot roads, and in most other cases where we need a routing penalty to prevent through-routing. Private roads will do the same, but are only used in place of PLR where we need to in some way differentiate the design from simple and typical no-through-routing designs. In such cases, the use of Private Road serves to make editors aware that the design is unusual.

BTW, didn't there used to be some sort of guidance to favor use of Private over PLR where the road is named?

Private allows traffic jam highlightimg, PLR does not. So private should be used for private streets which are used for driving not parking.

Edit: I'd like to see the rationale be
Private where there is a physical (gate, guard), or legal (Do Not Enter, No Trespassing signs) barrier to driving the segment.

PLR for others where we need the penalty such as parking lots, inside gas stations, etc. Which don't meet the private criteria.

You described a functional difference (traffic jams) but then expressed a preference that uses a rule that seems unrelated. Can we discuss how the functional difference might drive decisions?

Sorry for chiming in... But the penalty for PLR and PR isn't the same (at least in ROW) we made several test which showed us, that the PR penalty is much higher than the Plot

When were these tests performed, are they still active, can you share it with us so we can try to reproduce?

Those Tests Were made in 2014 don't remember the correct date. It's not active anymore. I'll try to set it up again...

Try to set it up in a remote area where it is impossible to acquire any traffic data which can alter the results.
