  • I'm not sure we need a specific new tag for this. School areas are already tagged with amenity=school and speed limit or other restrictions applying at certain time (I know an example where the street is oneway only when school is opening or closing) are already proposed somewhere else on this wiki. -- Pieren 09:16, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
I agree. We would end up with school_zone_maxspeed, winter_maxspeed, night_maxspeed, maxspeed_during_elk_migration_season ..., which are all basically temporal restrictions. It could be useful to be able to state the reason for the limitation; for this, however, a seperate proposal would be in order. --Schuetzm 09:24, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
This is why I used restriction=school_zone, and then school_zone specific tags so if something similar is needed for other things it could follow the same idea without much effort. Delta foxtrot2 10:18, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
I agree as well with Pieren and Schuetzm. The proposed tags for the time and maxspeed are school-specific in your proposal but could be general time-related restrictions and there would be just one new tag to relate the restrictions to the school. -- Dieterdreist 14:37, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
What happens when multiple rules conflict? Delta foxtrot2 14:46, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Use conditions!

I do not think that restrictions applying only on school days are radically different from restrictions applying only on Sundays, only when the road is wet or when it's dark. It's simply another example for conditional restrictions. These are covered in a more general way by my proposal here. Therefore, I think you should either

  1. define a condition for this or
  2. (probably better solution) express this using the opening_hours syntax.

If it cannot be expressed using opening_hours, that tag's syntax should be extended, because most likely there are several examples for amenities whose opening_hours depend on school days anyway. Possibly, this can be combined with school district boundaries as discussed on the talk mailing list. --Tordanik 23:00, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Merge with Extended_conditions_for_access_tags

I think we should try to merge this proposal with Proposed_features/Extended_conditions_for_access_tags. Anyway please add a link. --Skyper 11:47, 8 July 2010 (UTC)
