  • CheckAutopista does not support lane-based destinations (destination:lanes=*).
  • CheckAutopista does not support lane-based speed limits (maxspeed:lanes=*).
  • CheckAutopista cannot parse destinations where the motorway equally splits (e.g. the M20/M26 fork).
  • CheckAutopista cannot parse destinations at the start or end of a motorway.
  • CheckAutopista may incorrectly recommend a junction node (highway=motorway_junction) on a motorway roundabout. (e.g. Junction 4 of the M25).


Motorways or similar main roads need to be "collected" in a relation with type=route to be checked by this tool.
