On a tertiary road which was a through way it might be dangerous.  This is
a cul-de-sac which is a residential road
hanging off a residential road which itself hangs off a residential road.
The bus going past is the high point of the
day. :)

As for suggestions that it could be handled with note=*, data consumers
don't read notes (and mappers might not
read them either, even if the editor highlights them).  Mappers stand a
better chance of reading a description, but
consumers still won't see them.  However, the actual route shown on the map
indicates that there is something
unusual going on at that point.
