A traffic island is a structure separating at least two lanes of a highway for a short distance. The width of the island is usually under a few meters and should be less than 5 meters.
How to map
This applies to nodes and ways.
Don't let the island on the image on the left confuse you: there are indications neither of a one-way nor of right-of-way, so this is just a junction with an island for traffic calming.
- A traffic calming may be rendered as small hollow dot in the middle of a node or a small hollow line in the middle of a way. The line would be the same color as the feature and the outline would be black.
