Index -> anchors

I wanted to make an index of the signs, but having "Description [edit]]" in a cell was ugly.
So, I made each sign ID an anchor so that other documents can refer to a particular sign. With this command:

perl -pe 's/^\|\s*([A-Z]\d*[a-z]*)\s*/| {{anchor|\1}}[[#\1|\1]]\n/' signs.txt >newsigns.txt

Sign

what does thit sign mean? Border-sign.jpg --Cbm 00:47, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

It means that in Belgium, goods vehicles over 3.5 tons aren't allowed to overtake other vehicles on roads with two lanes in each direction (unless explicitely signed that they can, with sign F107). --Eimai 11:38, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
this seems to be standard for all belgium roads. Maybe we should catch this fact in a rule for the default-restrictions/speeds --Cbm 17:07, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
Where are you putting these rules then? --Eimai 18:59, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
maybe we can catch these info within the new zone:traffic-Proposal? --Cbm 01:07, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

No entry

Using oneway tag for roads that have 'no entry' sign on one end is not appropriate for roads that don't have 'oneway' sign on other end. There seems to be no correct tag for 'no entry' sign at the moment. Closest thing I could find is on the discussion page of turn restrictions http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Relation:restriction#No_Entry .

Mandatory to follow the direction indicated by the arrow Often these restrictions are already clear from oneway and you don't need to add anything additional. If not clear from the oneway, you can add Relation:restriction with a restriction=*
D3 Belgium-trafficsign-d3 up left.svg

Mandatory to follow one of the directions indicated the arrows Often these restrictions are already clear from oneway and you don't need to add anything additional. If not clear from the oneway, you can add Relation:restriction with a restriction=*
D4 Belgium traffic sign D4.png Mandatory for vehicles with dangerous goods to follow the direction indicated by the arrow Often these restrictions are already clear from oneway and you don't need to add anything additional. If not clear from the oneway, you can add Relation:restriction with a restriction=*
D5 Belgium-trafficsign-d5.svg Roundabout

junction=roundabout

D7 Belgium-trafficsign-d7.svg Mandatory cycleway (cyclists and mofas must use it. Pedestrians are allowed to use it if there is no sidewalk or verge. Mopeds are allowed to use it where speed limit is below 50 km/h. Mopeds must use it where speed limit is above 50 km/h. Speed pedelecs follow the same rules as mopeds. Other road users cannot use it)


When deciding to split off a cycleway from the main road, check "Choosing between cycleway=track and creating a separate highway=cycleway"


Belgium-trafficsign-d7.svg

Onderbord M14.png

Mopeds (class B) and/or speed pedelecs are obliged to use the cycleway. Use the tagging for D7, as described above. If applying to a cycleway as separate highway add moped=use_sidepath and/or speed_pedelec=use_sidepath on the main highway.

You don't always need a restriction relation when there's a D sign. Often these restrictions are already clear from oneway. —M!dgard [ talk ] 13:29, 23 January 2020 (UTC)
Thanks, I'll add it to the table --S8evq (talk) 09:14, 24 January 2020 (UTC)
