We found a in #1047. It was a node of building. They seem to be Easter Eggs. 

"An Easter egg is an intentional inside joke, hidden message, or feature in an interactive work such as a computer program, video game or DVD menu screen." Wikipedia

You are indeed right John, if you select a node belonging to a highway the crosswalk element appears in the tagging list. The result gives you an element with both highway=crossing and crossing=zebra tags.

That's what is being tagged.  Quite often on paths or footways or even tracks in very remote parts of the world.  I've seen maybe four in West Africa, one or two have turned up in Nepal, recently one appeared in Bangladesh.

I'm seeing a number of these on different projects.  They could be put in for fun but I suspect there are too many,they seem to come from inexperienced mappers I suspect using iD.

A possible undocumented feature or too easy to add? There seems often to be two tags involved on the node which would be unlikely if it was done for fun.

Thoughts?

Thanks John
