They need to be verified. I regularly visit the areas I'm working on  
and I mostly use voice recordings. Have been focusing on street names  
which I spell out from signs, and very interested in house numbers.  
Speed limits were an afterthought but I figured it would be a good  
start just to use 50 with the "default blah blah..." as I'd seen  
everywhere else for the residential streets.  Will change them to  
"survey" or "sign" ... or the like once verified.
