|zone:traffic = NL:urban|
|Dutch urban traffic rules apply (binnen de bebouwde kom).|

|Status: de facto|
|Tools for this tag|
The tag zone:traffic=NL:urban describes that a road or path is located inside the built-up area (binnen de bebouwde kom, bibeko) according to the traffic regulations of the European part of the Netherlands (Reglement verkeersregels en verkeerstekens 1990, RVV 1990). This implies certain default traffic rules apply on that road or path.
How to recognise
The start of a built-up area and therefore the start of zone:traffic=NL:urban is indicated by traffic sign H1, a blue rectangular sign with the placename in white (shown in the infobox). This sign can be added as extra information as a node with traffic_sign=city_limit.
Changes to the boundary of the built-up area must be decided/approved by the municipal council (gemeenteraad) (RVV art. 20a).
By default, the traffic rules associated with this tag apply to all roads and paths open to public traffic (alle voor het openbaar verkeer openstaande wegen of paden, Wegenverkeerswet 1994 art. 1 lid 1 sub b), to the extent they lie inside the built-up area. Other roads may opt-in with a sign saying RVV 1990 applies. Do not tag zone:traffic=NL:urban on roads where RVV 1990 does not apply.
How to tag
The only correct values of zone:traffic=* in the Netherlands are zone:traffic=NL:urban (binnen de bebouwde kom) and zone:traffic=NL:rural (buiten de bebouwde kom). Other 'zones' are indicated by different tags:
|Motorroad (autoweg) inside the built-up area||zone:traffic=NL:urban |
|Road inside the built-up area with signed 70 km/h speed limit
e.g. standard urban distributor road (gebiedsontsluitingsweg, GOW70)
|Road inside the built-up area with signed 50 km/h speed limit||zone:traffic=NL:urban |
|-||Road inside the built-up area without signed speed limit
e.g. standard urban distributor road (gebiedsontsluitingsweg, GOW50)
|Priority road (voorrangsweg) inside the built-up area||zone:traffic=NL:urban |
|30 km/h zone (zone 30) inside the built-up area
e.g. standard urban access road (erftoegangsweg, ETW30)
maxspeed:type=NL:zone30 or zone:maxspeed=NL:30 (optional)
|Cyclestreet (fietsstraat, auto te gast) inside the built-up area||zone:traffic=NL:urban |
|School zone (schoolzone) inside the built-up area||zone:traffic=NL:urban |
|Living street (erf) inside the built-up area||zone:traffic=NL:urban |
living_street=yes implied by highway=living_street
Note that maxspeed:type=NL:urban and zone:traffic=NL:urban have a different meaning. maxspeed:type=NL:urban is a road with the default urban speed limit (50 km/h), while zone:traffic=NL:urban is used on all roads inside the built-up area.
Possible speed limits
The scheme below indicates which speed limits for motor vehicles road operators are allowed to set inside the built-up area, based on the Uitvoeringsvoorschriften BABW inzake verkeerstekens. This may be helpful for mapping. Beware: these guidelines are occasionally violated in practice (usually for short segments).
|130||disallowed||disallowed||impossible RVV art. 63b lid 1 sub c|
|50||disallowed default RVV art. 20 sub a||default RVV art. 20 sub a|
|30||road segments and danger spots|
|20||danger spots only|
|15||road segments||default RVV art. 45|
Default traffic rules
The following table attempts to provide an overview of all default traffic rules that apply inside the built-up area, to the extent these can be expressed as OSM tags.
Instructions for reading this table:
- Explicit tags in OSM take precedence over fallback tags listed in this table.
- The bottommost defined fallback value takes precedence over any previous definitions for the same key.
- The table currently supports the following modes (and descendants according to the standard mode hierarchy):
- foot (voetgangers)
- horse (ruiters)
- vehicle (voertuigen)
- bicycle (fietsers)
- carriage (bespannen wagens)
- hand_cart (onbespannen wagens)
- trailer (aanhangwagens)
- motor_vehicle (motorvoertuigen as well as bromfietsers)
- access=*, oneway=*, maxspeed=*, and overtaking=* are assumed to apply to all modes, unless a mode-specific MODE=*, oneway:MODE=*, maxspeed:MODE=*, and overtaking:MODE=* indicate otherwise.
- MODE=access means the mode-specific access is the same as the mode-independent access.
- MODE=designated if access=yes else access means the mode-specific access is designated if the mode-independent access is yes, otherwise the mode-specific access is the same as the mode-independent access.
- maxspeed:MODE=maxspeed means the mode-specific speed limit is the same as the mode-independent speed limit.
- maxspeed:MODE=min(maxspeed, VALUE) means the mode-specific speed limit is either VALUE or the same as the mode-independent speed limit, whichever is more restrictive.
- minspeed=VALUE means the vehicle must be able to reach the speed VALUE legally; it is not a minimum driving speed.
