Thanks, Martin, that's a case which I wasn't aware of. Luckily for me,
it isn't one which can occur here in the UK. (See
I wonder if it's possible differentiate between a normal traffic signal
controlled crossing, an uncontrolled zebra crossing and the type of
crossing you describe using appropriate values of traffic_sign=* ? I'm
making the possibly parochial assumption that traffic signals and road
markings are considered to be traffic signs in the jurisdictions concerned.
