|Tools for this tag|
A multiple curve hazard is a section of road which presents a risk to motorists due to multiple curves. Curves present a hazard of obscured visibility of oncoming traffic as well as a short turning radius. This tagging is applied to roads that are signed for dangerous curves and should not be applied indiscriminately to roads merely because they have curves.
The curves=* tag can be added, indicating the specific type of curvy road section ahead:
How to Map
Tagging can be applied to the curved section of road or the location of the signage:
- Place a node at the location of the curve hazard traffic sign, tagged traffic_sign=hazard (or code) + hazard=curves.
- Tag a node along a highway=* way at the location of the sign
- Tag the section of highway=* where the curve hazard is present.
