Hi all,

There are almost 8m highway=track objects in the database (thanks 
taginfo!), third only to =residential and =service (thanks TIGER!).

I'm interested to know what level of access people believe this implies 
in their home countries.

Here in the UK, for example, highway=track is often used for private 
farm tracks, so you can't safely route over it unless access tags have 
been added. But evidently that's not always the case elsewhere.

has suggestions for a few countries, but is missing some pretty major 
ones, such as the US and the Netherlands.
