|Status: in use|
|Tools for this tag|
|This tagging is highly experimental.|
s represent the physical presence of road markings mapped with ways.
Unlike similar keys, such as turn=*, lanes=* and Relation:restriction which annotate highway ways, road_marking=* tags describe the markings themselves. However in most instances it may be possible to infer them from the tagging on the highway.
