for 2 lanes I would require two big vehicles can pass (at least by slowing
down) and 2 cars can pass without slowing down. If width is below, I am
using 1.5 as lanes value. I am not the only one, but it isn't widely
established either: https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/lanes#values
Standard vehicles can typically (?) be up to 2.50 m wide, which means the
road must have a width of at least 5.5-6m in order to be 2 lanes. Cars are
typically between 1,60 and 2m wide.
