This key indicates whether a way has frequent passing places, which might or might not be mapped individually.
This has nothing to do with three lane sections of two lane highways to help overtaking of slower vehicles.
How to map
Passing place nodes might exist on any highway which has lanes=* with any value below 2, e.g. 1 or 1.5, likely if frequent hgv traffic is present.
- passing_places=yes Way has frequent passing places, which might or might not be mapped individually. If intersections facilitating passing are frequent, they qualify as make-do passing places.
- passing_places=no Passing places don't exist frequently or at all along this way.
