A driveway is a minor service road leading to a residential or business property.
The driveway should be tagged as such even if the property has a small number of parking spots, typically for the occupants. Please avoid tagging as service=parking_aisle which is reserved for the small subordinated lanes on larger car parks.
Pipestems or shared driveways are common in planned residential developments in the United States, where a number of houses are located off a road (pipestem), each with their own driveways. These roads often end in a "cul-de-sac"/highway=turning_circle. Maintenance of the pipestem is typically the joint responsibility of all the homeowners of that particular pipestem. Pipestems aren't roads with a name. Some have tagged pipestems with this tag as well as driveway=pipestem; others have used service=pipestem instead.
