I had a quick 10 Minute Look at Mapillary and i have found 10s of
examples of separate way although no physical barrier. 

I guess this proves that people follow this way of mapping when they
see fit:

Hochstraße - Kamen:

Emil-Zimmerman-Allee - Buer

Horster Straße - Gladbeck

Kaiser-Wilhelm-Straße - Essen

Friedrich-Ebert-Straße - Essen

Boulevard Pinel - Lyon

Staropolska - Gdansk

Kärtner Straße - Graz

Heidelberg - Ernst-Walz-Brücke
