that's not the meaning of "lanes", lanes=0 would mean that there are no
traffic lanes. (this is what the wiki says about "lanes").

parking "lanes" are not counting as "lanes", because parked vehicles are
I agree for your example that I would tag this as lanes=1 as well.

yes, maybe we should rather tag the police station as corrupt or lazy or
both, than focussing on all the problematic, tolerated, illegal parking ;-)
IMHO these are 2 lanes, clearly marked on the ground. I do not see a reason

as long as cars do not have to stop in order to pass each other, yes. I
agree the width of the road is restricted, but if opposite traffic can
continuously pass, it is 2 lanes according to the current wiki ("how many
traffic lanes there are on a highway.")
Another question that comes to mind, now that we have removed the
requirement for road markings. In a situation where 3 lanes are marked, but
vehicles ignore the marked lanes and actually drive in 4 lanes, would you
tag this as 3 or 4 lanes?
