foot=no? Erm... Would this be a country specific default? Dtucny 12:12, 25 March 2007 (BST)

  • Thers no laws in the UK about not walking on main roads by default, apart from motorways as far as I'm awair. I'm not shore why it would be foot=no as default. Ben. 16:22, 25 March 2007 (BST)
There is a tertiary road near my house, it has pavements on both sides of it as it is in a housing area. foot=no seems a bit silly as default, especially in Scotland where practically nowhere is foot=no. Bruce89 18:53, 25 March 2007 (BST)
I added the 'Default Amenity' because I think it needs to be clear what the general OSM consensus is about these amenities. This nessesary for proper rendering and routing of maps for specific targets (like cyclists or pedestrians). The table I put in is certainly not final, so please update it to whatever you think it should be. --Lambertus 22:18, 25 March 2007 (BST)


I changed the word amenity to traffic restrictions because in most places on the wiki the word is used for things that our built and not for what is allowed. --Korea 05:46, 19 August 2007 (BST)

I did not know they use german city-limit signs in the UK ;-) --Christoph abc 10:03, 14 September 2012 (BST)

Ref tags and C roads

The example gives a UK 'C' road with "C 452". It would be more correct to omit the space, in line with the style adopted for other UK classifications e.g. "M6", "A584". All the C roads I have seen mapped have been without a space and this is also how I've mapped them. Even the Milton Keynes roads are "H1", "V3" etc, not "H 1", "V 3". I'll change the article.

Incidentally many C roads in Lancashire are narrow, such that vehicles cannot always pass easily, whereas there are many better-quality roads mapped as tertiary which are valid through routes but do not have a C number. The roads that were marked as residential or unclassified, but are C roads, I have left as such. Example: [1]; Staining Road/Chain Lane C278 was tertiary but Mill Lane C279 was not. I do not think we can afford to be as prescriptive as for A and B roads. And1969 18:57, 4 October 2012 (BST)
