I wrote a speed trap application a few years ago and I used this similar structure for speed trap locations. eg

While that scheme works well in the US and in English, some other countries/languages can't follow that pattern consistently. You'll also run into name collions that will break your scheme. I had to add a unique ID at the end of every address just to make sure I didn't get address collisions.
