proposal

to tag road features that are designed to slow down traffic in residential areas

Rationale

Having just been routed by my SatNav down a road with half a dozen speed bumps even though it is marked on maps as a tertiary route, I was struck by the need to have this information in the map data even if it is not displayed, to that these ways can be avoided. -- Batchoy 16:21, 12 December 2006 (UTC)

tagging

key=traffic_calming value=bump|chicane|cushion|hump|rumble_strip|table|choker

What does optional exactly mean here? -- Ulfl 23:11, 15 January 2008 (UTC)
