Well, not only in UK. In Spain there is right of way too.
I think the key is who _has_ the propierty of the highways. If the roads
are military but people use it, even army base is abandoned, I mark as
"permissive". If roads are public (from the Public Administration, from
the State) (I don't know if the roads are public in USA), then I mark as
Is there any Public Organization for querying if one road is public or
private? In Spain there is a "Cadastro": it maps all public roads, even
all houses (public and private) and limits of propierties. It has a
public WMS. So it's easy to see if a road is public or private: if it
appears in WMS, then it's public. If not, private. But there are
exceptions: private roads with right of way (that are mapped too).....
I hope this serves....
