I agree. I no longer respond to voice alert pings in
metro areas. I wait for them to call me. I must
admit, however, that I have left the car parked with
voice alert active. I resolved this (sort of) by
programming an adjacent memory without the tone
and move to it when unattended but I wish to still
send my location. And, try not to forget!

So, how can we educate these otherwise well-meaning
operators?
