Abusing the current broken wayfarer situation in Belgium - Destelbergen Street Lights

Right, so a couple of days ago it came to my attention that a certain someone has been massively abusing the current broken wayfarer system in Belgium/The Netherlands.

This person was clever enough to boast about his nonsensical submissions in DMs to other players and on Discord servers.

The following discussion is focused on two area's. The first one is an entire street in which he nominated the street lights but named them "trailmarkers". The second one is a number of fake stops on private property and/or the middle of the road.

*First area* Hoogstraat Destelbergen ( 51.067199, 3.840373 )

Notice all those waypoints in a seemingly straight lane. If you look on Google maps you will find nothing but single houses. https://www.google.com/maps/@51.0665233,3.8388971,3a,75y,216.05h,89.6t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sskfToztlsxA6r3GN6BXR7g!2e0!7i13312!8i6656?entry=ttu If we take a closer look at the wayspots we find that nearly 98% of those in that particular street are serial numbers of Street Lights.

If we look even closer, the so-called trailmarkers are exactly placed to trigger a maximum amount of POI's in Pokémon Go.

*Second Area* Draaiboomstraat - Lochristi

This area has a lot of portals on private property or portals that are borderline.

First example:

The portal is literally in someone's garden. You can clearly see it on streetview whilst the homeowner is working in it. https://www.google.com/maps/@51.0679127,3.8401544,3a,21.4y,105.97h,87.66t/data=!3m9!1e1!3m7!1sQDcKuifYP7Qtf4DmDv77rw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!9m2!1b1!2i24?entry=ttu

Second example: Numerous cycling trailmarkers which are found all over Flanders.

Now, it is very rare for those particular trailmarkers to be plotted down in the middle of the street. The Flemish governing body rarely puts these on different places but crossroads.

Oh and ofcourse, the street wouldn't be complete without some "street light" trailmarkers.

And to top it all off: How about a fake (okay, I can't prove it) Maria Chapel plotted in the middle of someone's garden.

If we click to see it in Google maps: https://www.google.com/maps/@51.0679959,3.8401108,3a,75y,73.7h,86.43t/data=!3m9!1e1!3m7!1sAZR5TJBc5m_UPYitT-jP2A!2e0!7i16384!8i8192!9m2!1b1!2i47?entry=ttu

The Portal is supposedly located at the end of a private driveway.

This was where I would originally end but I ended up finding this:

A so-called black mosaic tile.

In reality it's an air vent on the facade of a private property (picture and link to google maps added as proof)
