Remove use on linear ways?

There are only 14 ways with this tag. Can we remove the suggestion to map as a way and just suggest a node, as with other barriers that block a highway? The length is the same as the width of the highway feature, so it doesn't need to be mapped separately. --Jeisenbe (talk) 04:24, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

I've done this. --Jeisenbe (talk) 00:57, 29 October 2019 (UTC)

Directional Spikes

Should we use barrier=spikes with direction=X? I think that would work for e.g. the exit to SeaWorld Orlando, has spikes so people don't get free parking by going in through the exit. --Floridaeditor (talk) 14:50, 19 December 2019 (UTC)

I believe most uses of this tag are for directional spikes - that is the only kind I have seen in person. The highway=* way should be tagged with oneway=yes to show that only unidirectional travel is permitted. --Jeisenbe (talk) 04:02, 21 December 2019 (UTC)

How should access through directional spikes be made explicit? In some cases walking (or even cycling) backwards would be perfectly fine. --InsertUser (talk) 09:49, 21 August 2020 (UTC)

See oneway:bicycle=no and Key:oneway#Pedestrians - " This assumes that oneway restrictions do not apply to pedestrians" - but there is also oneway:foot=*. --Jeisenbe (talk) 06:14, 22 August 2020 (UTC)
