Howeverother local roads have many regional variances, as different states so local standards have different naming conventions (and different shields), this is not optimal for ramps. Local naming conventions are preferred for ramps and exits; this will be discussed below. Consistency within each been established at state is key. '''*NEW*''': The same note for U.S. Highways above applies for state highwayslevels. LA-308 in Golden Meadow should have "E Main St" as its primary name since that It is very important to check the name used in addresses of houses and businesses along the highway.: State routes may also be split if it state pages [[Best_map_editing_practice#When_.28Not.29_to_Split_a_Two-Way_RoadHighway naming/USA|meets the guidelineshighway naming by state]]for the regional standards.
; Road Badges: Each Road sign badges that are regionally customized by state may or region is a feature that is in the works for future use , but there is no estimate on when this feature will be implemented.: The Live Map will currently parse "State Rte xx" and "State Hwy yyy" showing a generic sign badge. However, as different states have different naming conventions, no states use this standard any longer or shorter naming format. See State Highways should always be named according to the individual state's standard here [[Highway naming/USA|highway naming by state]] table which standardize the formats for specific formatting of each statefuture badge implementation.: County, Township, and other badges may also be in the works. So maintaining consistency to local standards apply to these roads as well.

===County and township highways and roads [[Image:Baldwin County Route 64 AL.svg.png|35px]] [[Image:St Louis County Route 7 MN.svg.png|35px]]===
Text to speech on the client reads CR as "County Road." So "CR-10" is read as "County Road Ten"
Where road names are the same as cardinal directions (N, S, E, W), place the letter designator in single quotes with a lowercase <!-- Some say that lowercase in not necessary --> letter (CR-'n' CR-'s' CR-'e' CR-'w') so that the voice prompt will read the letter and not say it as a direction. Double or triple-letter roads with directional letters (e.g. CR-EN, CR-SAL) have not been tested but might be pronounced as if a word.
There is no other TTS abbreviation for county owned roads in any capacity. For these reasons: that county shields may someday be supported (and a named standard makes this easier to implement), and for brevity's sake in turn instructions and map displays, it is suggested (but by no means required) that individual states adopt the CR- standard.
