C Prohibitory signs

Sign Image Description Tags
C1 Belgian traffic sign C1.svg Forbidden direction for all drivers of a vehicle oneway=yes

make sure the direction of the way is the same as the driving direction

Belgian traffic sign C1.svg Belgian traffic sign M2.svg

C1+M2

Forbidden direction for all drivers of a vehicle, except bicycles

oneway=yes combined with oneway:bicycle=no

Belgian traffic sign C1.svg Belgian traffic sign M3.svg

C1+M3

oneway=yes combined with oneway:bicycle=no and oneway:mofa=no

Belgian traffic sign C1.svg M11NL.png

oneway=yes combined with oneway:bicycle=no and oneway:speed_pedelec=no

Belgian traffic sign C1.svg Belgium-trafficsign-m12 nl.png

Forbidden direction for all drivers of a vehicle, except bicycles, mofas (mopeds class A) and speed pedelecs (mopeds class P).

oneway=yes combined with oneway:bicycle=no, oneway:mofa=no and oneway:speed_pedelec=no
C3 Belgian road sign C3.svg No entry, in both directions, for all drivers of a vehicle vehicle=no and horse=no

Also try to add the necessary tag when there is an exception sign. Please see Key:access for exceptions not listed below.

Belgian road sign C3.svg Belgium-trafficsign-ob-iv-plaatselijkverkeer.svg Belgium-trafficsign-ob-iv-circulationlocale.svg

Only destination traffic allowed. Horses, bicycles, pedestrians and bus are always allowed. vehicle=destination, bicycle=yes, horse=yes, bus=yes and emergency=yes
Belgian road sign C3.svg

Belgium-trafficsign-ob-iv-aangelanden.png

Only traffic of residents allowed (aangelanden) is a more strict limitation than destination traffic (plaatselijk verkeer / circulation locale), as it only allows people actually owning or renting property in that street, and not visitors or delivery traffic like with destination traffic. But at the moment, this difference is not yet expressed in OSM. Another difference with destination is that there are no exceptions defined (for example bicycle, horse,...) vehicle=destination, horse=destination
Belgian road sign C3.svg

Belgium-trafficsign-ob-iv-aangelanden toelatingen w&z rijwielen.png

Variation of the above sign, with exceptions for permit holders and bicycles. vehicle=destination, horse=destination, bicycle=yes

There is no consensus yet on how to tag access restriction based on permits. One way of tagging it would be by adding: vehicle:conditional=yes @ permit. Another way would be vehicle=no, vehicle:conditional=yes @ destination;yes @ (private AND private=permit). (and similar for horse access)

Belgian road sign C3.svg Only permit holders and delivery vehicles allowed. vehicle=no, horse=no, vehicle:conditional=yes @ permit; yes @ delivery, horse:conditional=yes @ permit; yes @ delivery
Belgian road sign C3.svg

Belgium-trafficsign-ob-speelstraat.svg Belgium-trafficsign-ob-ruereserveeaujeu.svg

A street that has been temporarily and partially closed to allow children to play on the streets As an example, a street that is closed during the summer holidays from 9 until 18:00:


access:conditional=destination @ (Jul-Aug 09:00-18:00)

maxspeed:conditional=5 @ (Jul-Aug 09:00-18:00)

Belgian road sign C3.svg


A street where a school is located. Limited access, making it safe for pedestrian and cyclists.

Only pedestrians, cyclists and speed pedelecs are allowed. Maximum speed is limited to 'walking speed'. Exception for permit holders (law nl schoolstraat fr rue scolaire)

vehicle=no, horse=no, bicycle=yes, speed_pedelec=yes, emergency=yes


maxspeed:conditional=5 @ (opening_hours school)


vehicle:conditional=yes @ permit;yes @ (opening_hours when there's no school);yes @ (SH) (adjust the "opening_hours when there's no school" in the tag above).

horse:conditional=yes @ permit;yes @ (opening_hours when there's no school);yes @ (SH) (adjust the "opening_hours when there's no school" in the tag above).

A new proposal for these situations is available here.

Belgian road sign C3.svg

Belgium-trafficsign-ob-jaagpad.png

A towpath, which has it's own set of laws. See Jaagpad page for more details. vehicle=no, horse=no, bicycle=yes, mofa=yes, maxspeed=30


There is no consensus yet on how to tag access restriction based on permits. One way of tagging it would be by adding: vehicle:conditional=yes @ permit. Another way would be vehicle=no, vehicle:conditional=yes @ destination;yes @ (private AND private=permit). (and similar for horse access)
