  • Indiana Speed Limit Implementation
    • With the help of the tools terrypurdue, vtpearce, and dummyd2 developed, generated maps for tracking speed limit implementation
      • Editors were not excited about SL implementation and the overwhelming number of segments that would need work. I jumped in and gave a helping hand to show SMs aren't immune to having to do that hard work, too! Inspiring lower ranks to join in the effort and eventually brought us from a low of 33th place to 16th in scored completion, from the Waze speed limit sheet.
