In my city, there are many parking which are only for two wheelers (Motor bikes & Scooters, not cycles) while others are restricted to only 4 Wheelers.

How do I tag these amenities and differentiate between these two?

For 2-wheel parking use amenity=motorcycle_parking has 1016 uses on taginfo

For car parking where motorcycles are not permitted I'd suggest using motorcycle=no. The motorcycle access tag has 636 uses in combination with parking on taginfo.

Hi Devdatta, It depends on local laws. In some country's theres a law stating no parking allowed for 2 wheel motor vehicles (mc) in any parking space. So your allowed to park your vehicle anywhere else as long as it gives no trouble. In modern times they make special places in lost corners to prevent wild parking situations. I would use to tag, a place with no 2 wheelers parking, just that parking space with mc - no and is if it is allowed mc - yes and ad the other tags. Just accordingly to the tag scheme. Greetz ps this link could help a bit
