A ‹ choker › is a road narrowing, sometimes signed as "pinch points". The purpose is to slow the motorised traffic. It also improves the visibility of the road for a pedestrian intending to cross.

Mapped as a node on the highway line.

See also priority=* to indicate which direction of traffic has priority at the choker, if any.
