"Curb" is AE, in BE use "kerb". Please change this in the whole wiki where you can find it for consistency reasons. -- Dieterdreist 12:16, 21 September 2010 (BST)

Needs further clarification

I couldn't understand how to tag a street (e.g. highway=primary). Do I really need to map the sidewalk as a separate way to tag it as tactile_paving? If not, then how can I specify the left sidewalk has tactile paving, while the right one does not? --Jgpacker (talk) 11:26, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Update: I'm using tactile_paving:left=yes and similar to do this. --Jgpacker (talk) 18:44, 9 September 2014 (UTC)

tactile paving only on one side

If the crossing only has tactile paving on one side, how should this be tagged? `no`, `incorrect` or even something different?

I also have this problem. The wiki only says "This is set separately for each side of the road, because it can be different!" But how? With tactile_paving:left and tactile_paving:right on the crossing point or with a separate point on the footway leading to the crossing (but what if only a crossing is tagged on a road with sidewalk=* or similar?). It could really be more precise in the wiki. I decided now to use tactile_paving:left=yes (and tactile_paving:right=no) or tactile_paving:right=yes (and tactile_paving:left=no) on the crossing point – although this breaks the rule for "Use on ways": "On a pedestrian crossing highway=crossing, when the tactile paving is used in a line all across the crossing". So what should be the correct and best solution for any case which can also be used by blindmaps in a reasonable way? --Goodidea (talk) 12:29, 7 May 2018 (UTC)
