[Tagging] How to tag traffic islands ?

Hi all,

It seems that many mappers associate words like "island" or "traffic island"

with an area on a road that is enclosed by a white line and

maybe hatched lines ("schraffiert")

Also often used: traffic_calming=*

Not so often: "keep clear"

I don't even remember how to call them in German,

my understanding is that you are not allowed to cross them

with a vehicle and that they should not be used for parking.

Do we have a good tag for them? I also still don't understand

when use the crossing=island tag.
