Well that's just daft. I certainly won't be tagging any motorway
starts that occur in the middle of nowhere, as it's not useful data.
Is a driver really supposed to be able to drive right up to a
badly-located chopsticks sign and _then_ worry about being prohibited
from going any further.

Thanks for the reference. I think we'd be well-served to snap these
values to the nearest junction. Anything else is just daft.
