Could we get some proof otherwise? Anyone willing to create a huge parking lot landmark over a heavy traffic area and see if the automatic traffic information (red/yellow streets) and user reports (traffic, police, etc.) will mysteriously disappear?

I never bother with Plot landmarks anyway, but what about gas stations? I never did real testing but when I'm filling up I see no traffic reports generated.

Thank you for the test! I hate speculation (though I do a lot myself) but love facts.

So, if we can exclude landmarks from suppressing traffic. There is only road types left. Plot roads must then suppress traffic? (me speculating)
Do private roads suppress traffic too?
Anything else that could count for report/suppress traffic?
How much below average speed triggers an automatic report?
We know that manual reports don't change routing, it's only for visual alert.

Please do not trust this test at this time, there are several issues with the way it was conducted/what it tested for.

Yes, Parking Lot Roads do.

No, they do not.

Seems ok to me. The PLot landmark was added Jan 12th and is live. There's currently automatic "heavy traffic" being reported (the road is red) on "Av. Santos Dumont".

This does differ from testing preformed previously on NA, so perhaps this is yet another example of the separate infrastructures working unintentionally different.

I forgot to post this in this thread. Official word came down regarding Parking Lot landmarks in the NA server:

Hi Jason,

Landmarks do not suppress traffic jams.
We do [have] plans to use this feature, but we didn't try it live yet.

Myth busted!

We can break other myths? :lol:

The information is for the whole infrastructure, NA and ROTW.
