|One of two ways to specify the type of speed limit|
|Used on these elements|
|Tools for this tag|
This tag is sometimes used to hold information about the type of speed limit specified in maxspeed=*. While maxspeed:type is more used in Great Britain, the rest of the world has more tags of source:maxspeed=* in use for the same purpose (and semantics). See Speed limits for more information.
How to use
If you are using the tag for the purpose then use the value 'sign' for cases where the speed limit is specified as using a numeric limit on a nearby sign. Use a value of the form '<country_code>:<context>' where the speed limit is indicated using a symbol or icon, for example 'AT:urban' or 'RU:rural'.
