Note that the tag is actually "path" (trail was a previous potential
value, and it seemed after some discussion that path was more clear.  It
could go back to trail if consensus goes the other way.  I'd reserve the
"route=path" for things not on road.  (the cycleway= tag is not entirely
adequate for this either, since it doesn't provide for a designated
bicycle route which is also a road, but where there is no lane reserved
for bicycles.)
Bad - You get pulled over for doing 90 in a school zone and you're drunk
off your ass again at three in the afternoon.
Worse - The cop is drunk too, and he's a mean drunk.
FUCK! - A mean drunk that's actually a swarm of semi-sentient
flesh-eating beetles.
