also don't map too many driveways, only when I feel like getting to the

Where I've lived there are not that many fenced yards. But if I discovered
a fence with a gate, I would most likely add the gate and extend the
driveway to the garage.

In both cases I'm thinking about emergency services like fire and
ambulances. I'm happy that amazon is adding so many. Maybe one day our
emergency services will consider using OSM.
