concerns residential zoned parking
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Residential zoned parking is a local government practice of designating certain on-street automobile parking spaces for the exclusive use of nearby residents. It is a tool for addressing overspill parking from neighboring population centers (such as a shopping center, office building, apartment building, transit station, stadium, or central business district). Typically, residents in the zone pay a small fee to the government in exchange for a placard or sticker placed on their automobile(s) that indicates the zone designation (signified by a number or letter).
(...) It has been put into common practice throughout the United States, and has even been used in non-residential areas when a local street's parking is reserved for a business, museum or other facility.
This tag improves maps for car drivers by guiding to a parking. It is especially helpful when visiting a foreign city and not being familiar with the boundaries (usually residents can issue a visitor pass that allows visitors to park their car in a dedicated zone).
As mentioned in the introduction, residential parking zones are widespread in the U. S.
a typical zone is about a square kilometer large.
zone:parking does not match, because renderers shall not map it as huge parking spaces, also most of its attributes cannot be answered for a residential parking zone, it is more like a boundary.
parking:lane:condition=residents works, but seems painful to map for a complete area.
I propose to introduce it in form of a zone:
Zones usually have a name and a reference number like "A107".
