Playing devil's advocate here...
Why not use the Gas Station Landmark instead of parking lot roads for gas stations?
1) Both suppress the "ghost traffic jam".
2) You'll get a nice little highlight around the gas station.
3) A lot of gas stations have odd paths through them (in & out & around the pumps), wouldn't it easier just to drop a blob of a landmark over the whole area?
Does any of this create issues with the 3rd party pins?
I agree with this. Gas Station landmarks also avoid extra roads from appearing on the map and making it look less cluttered.
Could you also have the restaurant landmark suppress traffic in case we need to prevent traffic reports from popular fast food joints with drive-throughs?
