[Tagging] Tagging u-turn restriction with continuous painted line

I think "no_left_turn" is the best solution. The line on the middle of the
street is not a u-turn indicator, it is an overtake indicator which can be
tagged with overtaking=no and overtaking=both.

Are you sure that the dotted overtake line allows you to make a u-turn?
