I have noticed that a redlight camera is incorrectly positioned (mainly because the map shows a center divide between the lanes when one does not exist. The camera should be on the west side of the southbound lane not between the lanes. The camera is at:

Lat 42.088605083577704
long -88.03434044122696

It is a single direction 180 not reversable as stated.

PS. How do we use the current values box?

It's probably within the accuracy of most satnavs (my Tomtom often shows cameras slightly adrift to where they show on the "master" submission map).
Also, looking at the aerial photo at highest zoom its maybe 20 feet adrift east-west, but that will make no difference to when and how you are alerted to it if you are travelling North-South because it is at the correct Latitude.
Having said that, I'm all for increasing the location accuracy generally, so no reason not to adjust it slightly.

That seems a bit of a glitch, it is also logged with a heading of 180 degrees which is correct.

There are two useful buttons on that form... The "Update Co-ordinates for single subscription" button takes the exact centre of the map (where the "pushpin" is) and loads those co-ordinates into the Lat/Long boxes.

The "Autofill Current values" button depends on you knowing the ID number of a camera you want to change in some way.
If you click the mouse on a camera icon (you have to be quite precise) then the camera's ID number and details will be shown at the top left corner of the map. If you then type that ID number into the box beside the "Autofill Current values" button and then click on it, it puts the current details of that camera into all the relevant boxes and changes the "Action" to "Change details" ready for you to edit what is wrong.
