One road type mismatch I just was pointed to by @Haydenray was a road set up as Runway/Taxiway.

That seems like an odd combination of road types to illustrate unnavigable roads.

Yes, I noticed that. Also, the recommendation on solving isn't necessarily accurate. A little more trouble shooting may be involved.

As a software engineer, I can attest that "fix" == "make the error condition stop occurring". :D

That's what I mean: it shouldn't be the programmer who writes the error messages; at least, the part where it recommends how to resolve the problem.

Good move. We definitely need to watch to make sure any non-drivable segments we use intentionally are locked at the appropriate level.

I don't like that the recommended action is to change the type. Especially if it is a private road.
