   I've been working these for a while, and it's often difficult to figure 
out what's wrong.   In a few cases, you can see the green trace of the 
SmartPhone is off the road by about 5 or 6 meters.

   In some cases, drivers obviously cannot report bugs while driving through 
the affected area, so I look around at things nearby that can match their 
  1 way streets or new construction - (usually requires a survey)
  Bridges -   (Aerial imagery, a "turn now" while on bridge sort of thing)
  A road needing a dual carriageway because it told them to turn across a 
divided highway.
  Missing or incorrect routing connection details: left turn lane, missing 
divided highway connector.

  About half of them are just head scratchers.  Speed limits are not useful 
because they don't exactly identify the start and end of a speed zone.
