That would be very good. Especially as some editors map every lane.

Visual clutter goes away, problem reports for parking lots can go away. Only drawbacks would be it's still data to be transferred to the client and the extra nodes could effect routing times. Not sure if there are ways to avoid that.

1) The suppress automatic traffic jam reports
2) They carry a heavy routing penalty to prevent routing through a parking lot (into or out of is fine)
3) They help suppress automatically generated map problems (missing road)
Thanks, I will not do that. Any word about wether the future parking lot roads will be displayed differently on the map? They should at least be narrower.

I finally had to get one editor banned for a bit as he simply wasn't responding to any effort to get him to communicate, and he stated that lacking any set wiki instructions, he was just trying to mark all the landmarks the drop-down list let him mark.
Landmarks do not suppress traffic jams.
We do [have] plans to use this feature, but we didn't try it live yet.

I don't think the parking lot landmark in this example should be touching the Freeway. For one thing there's a huge green area separating the two.

"@WazeMapping Does the "parking lot" landmark have any use?"
"Limited use. That landmark was originally intended for public or pay lots, not every mall lot out there."
