Standard Abbreviations: Added a few more that's not part of the list but in use
This is a locally derived list for South Africa. The Original list is at [[Abbreviations and acronyms]].
The full set of suffixes is not in use in South Africa. The 'Afrikaans Name ' column is the generally used Afrikaans word for the Road Name. When verified as used for street names, the 'In Use' column will indicate that it is in use, and might contain a WME Permalink for the lesser spotted samples.<br>
Only the English Road Name suffix 'Abbreviation' is acceptable and used for Waze naming. If a Road is named 'Witbos Alley' and it appears on the map with the Afrikaans name, e.g. 'Witbos Steeg', it should be renamed to 'Witbos Aly'.<br><br>
# Not here or supported ? The "When in doubt, Spell it out" principle always apply.
