How to map
This applies to nodes and ways.Don't let the island on the image on the right confuse you: there are indications neither of a one-way nor of right-of-way, so this is just a junction with an island used for traffic calming.
A traffic calming may be rendered as small hollow dot in the middle of a node or a small hollow line in the middle of a way. The line would be the same color as the feature and the outline would be black.
