-Road Types wiki is just a good link to have when talking about how the road types should be classified.
-Road naming could be deleted.

Fixed! :)

I understand how that could be a little confusing. I was just stating that speed cameras in Washington are normally built in school zones to enforce lower speed limits. Not all schools/school zones have cameras.

Would this be better?:
-Should be mapped at the actual location of camera, use street view.
Speed cameras in Washington are normally in school zones to enforce lower speed limits.-

Or should I eliminate the second part completely?:
-Should be mapped at the actual location of camera, use street view.-

The reasons I think they should be mapped is because it reduces the amount of people who report red light cameras incorrectly from the app. Also gives drivers warning that there isn't actually a camera and that the sign is just there for safety. Plus, it does no harm. Its just a pin on the map.

I know it clutters the map but Seattle often looks like this screen shot below I took of Washington DC. Ever sense I started adding fake cameras the amount of incorrectly reported cameras in Seattle is drastically different.

I think it's a nice start.

In terms of stuff I don't get, why the two links at the top of Road Classification Guide? That is, what should readers get from those pages?

"Driveways do not have a name unless they serve multiple houses" isn't true. Named private drives can be named in the editor, but just because they serve multiple houses doesn't mean they get named.

Speedcams: do all washington school zones have speed cameras? Or is it the standard in Washington to put cameras around school zones? That seems wrong.

Washington mapping resources current link is the same as the forum link. Was that intentional?
