I would like to bring this up in the list. I am not happy with the recent change of the key:access page of the wiki
---------- Forwarded message --------- The OpenStreetMap Wiki page Key:access has been changed on 24 May 2020 by Flohoff, see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:access for the current revision. To view this change, see https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Key:access&diff=next&oldid=1994688 ----- In my country (Italy) there are literally thousands of ways where it is most likely legal to pass by bicycle, but there is no (practical) way of finding out. Essentially two classes: - plenty of ways that look from the layout like combined foot-cycle paths but have no signage at all - plenty of service roads which show the "no transit for any vehicle" sign <https://images.app.goo.gl/Uh6yNJ5V646TMrWw7>, but in reality you can happily pass with your bicycle and no policeman will ever say anything, or even know that "no vehicle" legally includes "no bicycle", There are plenty of cases where even signposted cycle routes follow such roads. I am consistently using bicycle=permissive in these cases, well being aware that I do not know of he owner has given permission. Basically any cycle-routing would come to a halt without this trick. The strict wording introduced by Florian is simply not practically applicable here. My questions are: Is Italy the only country with this problem? Is there any better proposal for tagging the situation "from all I can see on the ground, you are allowed ride through with your bicycle"
