Just saw mention of this article:
https://www.kalzumeus.com/2010/06/17/falsehoods-programmers-believe-about-names/,
which made me remember.

A year or so back, I read a similar OSM based article (may have been from a
SotM conference?) about systems saying that street addresses *MUST* be
wrong because it's shown as Street Street, Lane Lane & similar things.

Person giving the talk had figures for how many of these "wrong" addresses
there were, & it may have even been based on Oz?

Ring a bell with anybody?

If so, do you have a link?

Thanks

Graeme
