Wouldn’t the enforcement be the camera on the road reading your plate number? 

enforcement is about catching people breaking the existing rules. 

barriers about blocking access, so you can’t break the rules. I can ram a fence, smash a bollard, or go over tire spikes, but they are physically trying to prevent my access, rather than record rule breakers for fines later.

Mapping these should be a way of two nodes very close together, shared with the highway they are on (before spikes & after spikes nodes). 

The direction of the way is the allowed direction of motion.
