In usual the links in my country Yemen are lesser in their design than the two ways that it  linked between, you can see a trunk way with 4 lanes for every direction linked with a secondary way with 2 lanes for every direction with only one lane link.

In the link you can't drive with the higher way speed but you may drive in the lower way speed or lesser.

so the link does not have the importance of the higher, nor have the performance of the higher, So why it get the classify of the higher.

I think agreeing with the higher level is correct as the link usually inheirets, or at least tolerates, the rules and design standards for the higher road.

About the subject I used to tag the link with the lowest way class but in:

Based on my own understanding, this is how you tag the link roads, when dealing with different highway categories. Always tag the link with the highest class road.

it guides to use the hightest way class. I think this is not right behavior link from motorway to tertiary way is tertiary way not  motorway, and so.

What do you think about this?
