This literally doesn't add up. Also, that's a shoulder on the right, Tulsa
screwed up and used white paint for the centerline.

Awkward but correct.  But as said before,  the lanes tag is pretty useless

No!  That tag makes it easy to find a tagging error further down.  There's
a good reason validators choke when the forward, backward and both_ways
lanes don't total the lane count.  Editors set this automatically,
validators throw errors for on this because that idea is brick to the head,
physically induced brain trauma, short-bus riding special.

So once again,  define a new tag or do not use the lanes tag,  or use it as
