Hole in a road
Status: Draft (under way)
Proposed by: Zverik
Tagging: highway=hole
Applies to: Node
Definition: A tag for marking holes in roads
Rendered as: Dark cross or exclamation mark?
Drafted on: 2011-05-24


There are some roads which are generally very smooth, and when driver's attention is unfocused, they present a large hole, resulting in a broken wheel or suspension. Such holes are to be tagged as nodes with highway=hole.


Holes are being fixed. There should be a date when it was last checked, for example, date=YYYY-MM-DD.
