[mkgmap-dev] Road speed through urban areas

Be careful, if you drop the class for traffic_signals it brokes long distance routing, because (at least in South America) a lot of primarys and trunks have traffic_signals.

I have been using the a map with a style that applies a -1 penalty for road_speed in case of traffic signals, and it works well in cities and in long distance routing, and it improves the estimated times.

In Massachusetts, *everywhere* is within an admin_level=8.  One of these
is Boston, which is very crowded, and there are towns with 300 people
and probably more cows than that, over probably 40 km^2.   So being in
an admin_level=8 does not imply that you can't drive the posted limit.

This "admin8 is slow" rule also fails verifiability as much as

To me it's clear that the right thing is to 1) tag major roads in cities
with maxspeed:practical, if you can't drive at the posted speed and 2)
respect maxspeed:practical.  Just because the wiki crowd doesn't like is
not that important; OSM has a culture of arguing about tagging in a
vacuum rather than in the context of how data consumers use it, and this
culture is broken.

That sounds promising.   OsmAnd I am pretty sure adds time for
traversing lights, but it isn't trying to program someone else's routing

I suppose the traffic_signasl (and stop) could also drop the class for
longer segments if it basically works out the same.
