I also think the tag is wrong on all the Emergency Phones along the Yarra Trail (VIC)

I agree 000 is not a contact number for enquiries about the feature it's tagged an, so I'm for removing it.

These are the numbers that aren't in a valid international or local format. They are "odd" in some way. Including a whole bunch of highway=emergency_access_point phone=000 (whatever that is supposed to mean?).

 

My present thoughts on 000 ... remove it.
Could be dialled accidentally thinking that you were ringing that particular feature, like a fire station.

I noticed that someone had already set up a MapRoulette Challenge to fix phone numbers in Australia that aren't in the correct format. However there are about 3500 of them to check and it seems pointless to use human brain power to fix the ones that can be fixed by a machine just as well.

With that in mind I've created a MapRoulette Challenge (http://maproulette.org/) that only covers the phone and fax numbers in Victoria that can't be read to a valid number. The task is called "Invalid phone/fax numbers in Victoria, Australia" and there are about 94 items requiring checking.

If people think it is worthwhile I can create challenges for the other states.


Still thinking about this.

If the 1300 and 1800 numbers 'work' then so too will the non ISD numbers .. just not from overseas.
As overseas interest in using 'our' numbers is very small I don't see much urgency nor impact in it.
