Large flower buckets

Does this tag also apply to large flower buckets that are placed on roads as barriers? Example images: [1] [2] [3] --Head 12:43, 31 August 2010 (BST)

Yes, if they were put in place as a barrier to some kinds of vehicle rather than just nice-looking traffic calming. --achadwick 17:06, 26 April 2011 (BST)

Barrier=planter was suggested for large flowerpots on the tagging maillist, or man_made=planter and barrier=block. /Johan Jönsson 20:50, 4 September 2012 (BST)

Gates / any barrier

Also gates (example)? Does this tag apply to any barrier? --Owenh 03:17, 20 April 2011 (BST)

Definitely not: this is quite a specific kind of barrier. See barrier=gate for gates, and barrier=* for lots of different kinds of barrier ☺ --achadwick 17:06, 26 April 2011 (BST)

Default access

Does this type of barrier placed on a middle of highway=service for example means that will stop larger vehicles, but will permit bicycles and pedestrian, or some access=* tags are still needed? --mafiainc 23:58, 06 May 2011

Not sure what to say here, though we probably should say something. Adding some access tags is probably a good idea, you can state motor_vehicle=no, for example. IMO, perhaps this should be the default. --achadwick 14:14, 9 May 2011 (BST)

I agree that motor_vehicle=no (or at least motorcar=no) and foot/bicycle=yes (or permissive). I usually just tag every barrier explicitly with at least motor_vehicle, foot, and bicycle though. --Olejorgenb 21:48, 20 September 2011 (BST)
  • In barrier=bollard we see "access=no, foot=yes, bicycle=yes" by default. I propose to add the same text in this page. Dinamik (talk) 18:14, 24 June 2013 (UTC)

block barriers as ways

I wonder why block barriers are only allowed as points. In reality, large lines of concrete blocks could be placed as traffic dividers or to temporarily shape traffic in a particular direction.
