(Redirected from Low-traffic neighborhoods)Jump to navigation Jump to search
Low-traffic neighborhoods are not mapped explicitly in OpenStreetMap as it is quite subjective.
But anything specific can be mapped, in particular:
- legal rules such as speed limits - with maxspeed=*
- access restrictions using access=*, vehicle=*, bicycle=*, foot=*, motor_vehicle=* and other access tags
- for example vehicle=destination + bicycle=yes means that transit traffic is forbidden for all vehicles except bicycles
- highway=living_street is used for special streets where pedestrians have legal right of way and priority over vehicles
- highway=pedestrian is for streets where vehicle traffic is completely eliminated or extremely restricted
- barrier=* is used for variety of barriers
- traffic_calming=* for variety of devices to reduce speed of vehicles
- traffic_calming=bump A short bump, with extent, in the direction of travel, of about 30 cm or shorter.
- traffic_calming=hump Similar to a bump, but longer in direction of travel, with total length of usually 2–4 meters, generally with a continuously rounded shape.
- traffic_calming=table A speed table used for encouraging traffic to drive slower. More gradual than speed humps and speed bumps.
- traffic_calming=island An island is a small area that temporarily separates two different directions of traffic.
- And more, see Key:traffic_calming for a listing of more documented values
