Parking for small vehicles

This proposal aims to provide a tag for parking locations of any kind of small road vehicle, apart from bicycles.

Current Situation

There are well established tags for parking of bicycles and motorcycles, but not yet for other kinds of small vehicles like the now ubiquitous electric scooters. This led to a vast amount of new tags:

All of these have in common that they only refer to one specific type of vehicle, while real parking places usually can be used by different kinds. Therefore, these should be combined in one single top-level tag and details can be added using the common tags for vehicle types.

Proposed tagging


Examples

Image Link Description Tags
Small electric vehicle parking.jpg
A parking location dedicated to bicycles and small electric vehicles in Germany. The bicycle and scooter parking have separate areas in this case, so they can be mapped as separate objects.

Additional features (waste bin, no racks, light, asphalt) can be added as well.

amenity=small_vehicle_parking

small_electric_vehicle=designated
bin=yes
lit=yes
covered=no
small_vehicle_parking=floor

Electric kick scooter parking close-up.jpg
A parking location dedicated to kick scooters, whether electric or not. amenity=small_vehicle_parking

kick_scooter=designated
covered=no
small_vehicle_parking=rack

Kick-Scooter Parking Place at Railwaystation Alfter-Impekoven
A parking location dedicated to kick scooters.

Whether electrically powered scooters can also use this kind of parking space depends on the individual wheel size and overall height.
In order to be able to make a statement about the relevance of this construction type, a manufacturer informed me on my request that he sells 10,000 parking spaces per year. With an assumed number of 8 parking spaces per unit, this corresponds to 1250 mappable parking spaces per year.
