Pedestrians can cross a street here; e.g., zebra crossing. They are also called crosswalks in American English. This tag is used exclusively for nodes. For tagging pedestrian crosswalks as separate ways, use highway=footway and footway=crossing.
How to map
To map a pedestrian crossing, place a node within the way representing the road, and set this highway=crossing tag on the node (not on the way). It's a good idea to further classify the crossing with the tag crossing=* which more accurately describes specific types of pedestrian crossings. More combination tags are described on the Key:crossing page.
Pedestrian crossings may exist even if they are not marked.
