There are signs I've noted near here that are warnings:
"Unsuitable for motor vehicles"
This isn't an access permission, and isn't something I'd say was
suitable for the proposed smoothness tag (as it is fine for cyclists
and pedestrians, and indeed many vehicles do use it though some
scrape the bottom of the car where the road crosses a bridge with
rather strange angles to the road). For now I've not tagged anything
to indicate the warning.

More suitable for that sort of warning is this proposed tag
(mentioned here a couple of days ago):
