This tag is used for traffic light controlled pedestrian crossings.

Some mappers instead use crossing:signals=* in combination with crossing=marked or crossing=unmarked, because some unmarked crossings are also signalized or have unknown signalization.

How to map

Set a node node on the highway where the transition is and add highway=crossing + crossing=traffic_signals.

Draw a way way which can be used by pedestrians to cross the road and add tags highway=footway + footway=crossing + crossing=traffic_signals.

Nearby can also be a traffic light (highway=traffic_signals) on another node.

Tags to use in combination

Possible tagging mistakes

If you know places with this tag, verify if it could be tagged with another tag.
