I am trying to create a basemap in tilemill. Very new to this software. When I add the label styling for the roads, it adds the name several times. Is there a way to have it only place the label on the map once?

My code

   text-face-name:'Arial Regular';

You could try the text-spacing property, which controls 'distance between repeated text labels on a line (aka. label-spacing)'. Here's a link to the CartoCSS docs:


You can also find some other helpful properties there for label placement, including text-placement and text-min-path-length.
