Hi Anton

Quite definitely weren't visible as a couple of them appeared within a few
00 m's of my home location, which is something you definitely notice! When
I've just looked, the "Notes" layer is ticked which is why they're now
visible - don't know if I managed to tick it in error, or if an update of
some sort now set's it to visible as standard?

Guessed the speed limit ones were related to no / wrong limits so wasn't
worried about them - I copied a wrong link showing what I was talking

If they're not in iD, how do you fix them? I've resolved a couple & they're
now showing as green ticks rather than red exclamation marks, but how do
you make them disappear? Or is that something that only the originator can
