What about tagging roads/paths with information that reflects legal 
regulations for that road, like traffic restrictions (e.g., for 
different types of vehicles), speed limits etc.

Of course, such information (with a reasonable level of detail) would be 
highly jurisdiction specific. My hope is that like this, we can gather 
_exact_ information (_which_ trafffic sign there is ...), which can then 
be processed to result in information like "There is a obligatory 
cycling path."

Following the highway codes is a very detailed and accurate ontology to 
start with ...

What do you think about this idea?
