Tagged at nodes where it is not suitable, possible or legal to cross. Note that as crossing=no excludes the existence of a crossing, it must be used without highway=crossing.

The tag is used at places where one would expect a crossing, but where there isn't one.

Such places include for example highway=traffic_signals without a pedestrian crossing:

Another case may be where the geometry of a footway crosses a road-way but at that position, it is not possible, legal or eligible to cross, so pedestrian (router)s need to find the closest proper crossing to safely continue onto the footway on the other side of the road.
