This tag indicates which set of implicit traffic rules apply to a particular road (rules not set explicitly by signs). Each value of this tag is associated with a different set of default traffic rules.
Because default traffic rules vary from country to country, values are country-specific (or region-specific if traffic regulations vary within the country). The traffic regulations of most countries distinguish at least two zones: urban (within city limits) and rural (outside of city limits). All values follow the format "<ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 code>:<rural|urban|...>".
This tag is based on the trafficzone proposal, which is still in draft status but widely accepted in Germany.
