[Tagging] Is there a good way to indicate "pushing bicycle not allowed here"?

Do we have any tagging for areas where e.g. open alcohol containers are
prohibited,  where firearms are specially prohibited* or disallows
possession of a recording device or camera? A separate 'specific item
banned' tag is starting to sound like it would avoid further muddying the
transport mode tags.

*in jurisdictions that permit them in the first place of course.
