Talk:Proposed features/Oncoming traffic

A concept I like. While I take it that the proposal is for a way, effectively saying that there are a number of oncoming traffic right-of-way points, how would one go about marking an explicit point in the way where one side of the road MUST give way to the other side? How to indicate which side gives way, and which side has right of way? It's is really a node level tag, but needs some sort of relation perhaps to indicate which side must give way. -- Gaffa 12:43, 4 December 2008 (UTC)

Better to use relation for which side to give way where that applies, some oncoming traffic have the same right for both directions, and some have other conditions to whom to give way, such as east going in the morning and west going in the night. For the tagging of the oncoming itself, such restrictions shouldn't be given in other forms that it exists, so that it can be rendered with a red arrow in one direction, or don't exist, black arrow in both directions. There was a proposal some time back for meeting points, where traffic can let oncoming traffic pass, this was rejected if I remember correct, with this proposal, the meeting point should probably be implemented, as points in oncoming traffic roads where you can let traffic pass. Way:Oncoming, Node:Meeting_point, and relation for any restrictions of give-way. --Skippern 12:52, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
