Rationale

Tagging the driving pleasure of a road can help a "Sunday driver" to plan a weekend route through nice roads, where the driver and the passengers enjoy the ride. An enjoyable road include a beautiful landscape, a fair ground, not very much traffic, villages and houses near the way and so on. For some drivers and passengers, a lot of turns are also enjoyable...

Why?

Well... personally I would like to know which roads are enjoyable for driving, especially when I just want to have a drive around, having nowhere to go. And many other drivers would also like to know what type of roads will be better for him/her or their passengers, looking out of their windows. Motorways through the desert are boring (And unsafe for this reason!); but mountain roads where you can see white snow, small, old villages, waterfalls or forests may be wanted by people.

Tagging

I've proposed Driving_pleasure, and a scale from 1 to 5 to specify the quality of the ride. Anyway, other options are welcomed.

Rendering

Still unknown!!
