A way is a group of connected segments. Rather than adding a tag to each
segment in turn, you can make a group of segments into a way and then add
the tags just once to the way. Each road, or section of road if it is very
long, should be a way.
In JOSM ways are coloured blue. Segments are coloured green. Type W to
select the way making tool and then click on each segment in turn that you
want to group together into a way.
