The highway=living_street tag is used to tag living streets or other implementations of shared space. These type of roads have lower speed limits, and special traffic and parking rules compared to streets tagged using residential). A general feature of this type of road is, that the legislation either grants pedestrians the right of way over or at equal rights to other road users. The implicit speed limits set in legislation vary from "walking speed" up to 20 km/h, in some countries, the speed limit is given explicitly on the sign.

Terms for these street vary considerably around the world and include Home Zone (UK), Erf/Woonerf (Netherlands/Flanders), Verkehrs­beruhigter Bereich (Germany), Begegnungszone (Switzerland). See the table below for details on the names and the legislations.

How to map

Create a simple way and tag it with highway=living_street and with name=*. If there is no explicit speed limit given on the living street sign, you do not need to add an explicit maxspeed=* tag, because the speed limit is implicit according to the legislation of the country.

Rendering

Like a residential street, but filled with light grey.

Zusatzzeichen 1010-10 - erlaubt Kindern, auch auf der Fahrbahn und dem Seitenstreifen zu spielen, StVO 1992.svg

The colloquial word Spielstraße is commonly used for the legal term Verkehrsberuhigter Bereich. But in administrative regulations (VwV-StVO) the legal word Spielstraße is used for a rare combination of an exclusion of all vehicles combined with an additional sign for playing children.

No numeric speed value is set by law for Schrittgeschwindigkeit (walking pace speed). The value of around 7 km/h resulted from several judgements, most within the range of 7 to 12 km/h. A Tempo 30-Zone is not a living street.

Support

Routing and navigation software might try to avoid such areas when navigating cars.
