Women and surveillance

Why it's only for women that the wiki suggest the tag surveillance=* Girls are dangerous ?? Need an example or create a specific chapter for surveillance who could be use with all the value. —Preceding unsigned comment added by APP3L initiation (talkcontribs) 2013-03-11T19:21:48‎

I guess it's supposed to mark voyeurist activity. Clearly an abuse of surveillance=*, therefor removed it. --rayquaza (talk) 02:43, 17 September 2014 (UTC)

Women and pregnant

capacity:women is for pregnant's women ??

No, for women, which are not good at parking. These parking slots are wider. --Klumbumbus (talk) 14:25, 4 March 2015 (UTC)
Because they crash other vehicles when they attempt to park ? They need wider allowance to turn ? This is a bad sexist joke.
No I think the proposal is about areas reserved to single women (or single women with children) for their protection while walking in parkings: near a surveillance camera or in view of parking personals from their cabin. — Verdy_p (talk) 01:10, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Long vehicles

Long or heavy vehicles may not be able to use most parking lots. Frequently (near stadiums or on motorway stations) there are slots more suitable for long/heavy vehicles (buses, trucks), which are both longer and frequently a bit larger. Parking cars on this slots is still allowed (the slots are generally not dedicated but permissive except if the parking area itself is tagged with car=no and motorcycle=no). Cars with caravans will need to use these slots too, and frequently some minibuses which cannot use the normal slots for cars or motorcycles. Heavy vehicles may be restricted access by weight/height limits separately.

So add "capacity:long_vehicle"=* ? — Verdy_p (talk) 01:06, 12 December 2017 (UTC)

Mixed Parking of Residentials and Free/Fees

What are the standpoints of free/fee parking mixed with residentials parking? If a parking isle has 30 slots, but x amount of them are free (or with fees), should capacity=30 or x? There is no capacity:free or capacity:fee. --Startail (talk) 17:42, 21 June 2018 (UTC)

If you can define which places are which, you can just split the one area with amenity=parking into two and give them the matching tags - this is the best option. We do have many keys like "capacity:women", so you could write "capacity:residents" in addition to the normal capacity tag. In this case I recommend adding a note explaining the situation. If residents don't have to pay a fee, you can add a conditional tag like "fee:conditional = no @ residents". --Mueschel (talk) 17:52, 21 June 2018 (UTC)
