This tag applies only to roads with a classification that normally allows use by vehicles classed as mofa, but a parallel compulsory way that should be used instead is present and mapped.


Unlike bicycle=use_sidepath, this tag was never properly proposed and accepted. Due to its considerable use however, routing engines should treat it as a negative access value (i.e., access=no).

How to tag

This tag applies to ways where a parallel way suitable and mandatory for this class of vehicle is mapped. If that parallel way is mapped, this tag can be used on the way that should not be used to indicate the compulsory use of the parallel way. This tag is often used in combination with moped=use_sidepath and bicycle=use_sidepath.
