Abbreviations & Locking Standard
See [[Duplicate cities]] for information on resolving the numerous conflicting city names in Pennsylvania. When a municipality has the same name and city type (i.e. Borough, Township, City), append the county after the city name in the format '''Cityname, Countyname'''. This is based on a recommendation by Waze for future database organization.
== Road Naming, Abbreviations & Locking Standard ==
When naming roads or Ramps, use '''Penna''' as the abbreviation for Pennsylvania. '''Penn''' causes text-to-speech conflicts with the numerous items named after William Penn. '''PA''' should not be used except as shown below.
The format '''SR-xxx''' (State Route) should be used when naming ramps (e.g., to SR-28 S / Pittsburgh). See also: [[#Ramps|Ramps]]. To maintain uniformity across the state, the PA-xxx format '''{{Red|should not}}''' be used unless it is on the road signs that drivers would see.
