How to Map Mf way.svg

In an area with amenity=parking add these (often multiple) subordinated ways that allow access to the rows of parking spots with both
highway=service and
Add a oneway=* tag if appropriate.

The main way(s) on the parking lot, for entering and connecting multiple parking_aisle, should be mapped with highway=service, only.


A driveway onto a residential or commercial property, even if there are a small number of parking spots, should still be tagged highway=service and service=driveway, and not as parking_aisle.

Width is thinner than a highway=service roads.
