There may be other sites that use the OpenStreetMap data to show this kind of
information on a map, but at least I have'nt found any.
The only way I've found to fins this information is in the editor. I'm using
Potlatch that can be found by pressing "Edit". "Edit with save" is safer than
live editing, so chose that. Click on a road segment leading to the
intersection. You'll see a couple of relations. Relations look like tags but
have white text on a slightly darker grey background. Two of them are called
"restriction" and has 'roles' (thats the words "to" and "from" to the right of
the word "restriction") on them. If you click on the word "restriction" you'll
get more information about this restriction. It says that the type is
restriction and that restriction is "only_straight_on". At least in this
intersection every restriction relation has three members: "from", "via" and
"to". You might have guessed that "from" is the road you are coming from, that
"to" is the road you're going to and "via" is the intersection itself.
