[Tagging] Access restrictions for shoulder lanes?

Getting back on topic for a moment.... Hard shoulders should be
access=no, not access=breakdown or access=emergency (the last two
shouldn't even exist IMHO). The baseline is that you shouldn't be there
at all. You get away with it if you have permission (blue lights) or no
choice (breakdown) although it seems there may need to be parking
restrictions or minimum speed tags added in Oklahoma. 

There are of course hard shoulders which are opened as running lanes
during certain hours or in certain conditions. In that case they
alternate between access=no and access=yes/motor_vehicle. This is what
the access:conditional tag is for.

Since you're either on a cattle chute of a motorway with no services or exits, or in the middle of mountains, forests, open prairie or totally uninhabited desert depending on where you travel outside of metro Tulsa or OKC here.
