We have many footway with a sign „Bei Schnee- und Eisglätte gesperrt“ wich means "access restricted when slippy from snow or ice". How to tag that?

Assuming that the "ice" condition has a meaning which is distinct from "snow", the intent of the access conditions thing is to allow you to tag like this (for a logical "OR"):

access:conditional=no @ snow; no @ ice

However, neither "@ snow" nor "@ ice" is documented properly, which is problematic. I think from the wording that "@ snow" refers to a road condition.

(If they're not distinct conditions, just use "access:conditional=no @ snow")

Actually snow is mentioned in the conditional restrictions wiki page. Nevertheless this page will never be complete so I guess it is valid to introduce new conditions. Taginfo will help as time goes by.

Referring to the right way would be

access:conditional=no @ snow; no @ ice


  • :conditional does not allow OR. Using multiple parts instead works just fine.
  • :conditional does not allow NOT. Use a different value: access:conditional=no @ snow; no @ ice; yes @ "special caution"
