Use footway=sidewalk along with highway=footway to tag sidewalks (also known as pavement/footway in the UK or a footpath in Australia) as distinct ways from the carriageway.

A more common alternative is to map the sidewalk as property on the street, especially if the sidewalk is just attached with a kerb and not separated by a road verge or other barriers. See Sidewalks for more details and a comparison of the two tagging approaches. See also the comprehensive explanation for bicycle way tagging.

footway=sidewalk is also sometimes used with other highway=* values

How to map
