traffic_sign=city_limit is a sign that indicates the boundary of the urban area of a city (or town, village, etc.). In many countries, it also indicates where legal restrictions (such as driving speed limits) will implicitly apply.

How to Map

Set a node node on the highway or as a separate node beside of the road and tag it with traffic_sign=city_limit.

name=* should be specified and, if necessary, alt_name=*.

direction=* should be specified. The traffic sign should be faced when you drive into the city.

city_limit=* should be used to specify whether you're entering or leaving the city's limits
