How does osm handle roads where one way property is only for motorised traffic and bicycle may go both directions?

Thank you! Very informative. However, it is not clear to me which editor allows to set these options. I am using the browser based editor using map display. Can you please elaborate a bit?

@someosmanduser: do you mean "iD" by "browser based editor"? However, see Tag#Use_in_an_editor. Our "browser-based editors" allow editing the raw tags (this is likely what you mean by "these options").

Hi, if you use Potlach, switch to advanced optons, theyre hidden in default menu. See left corner. In JOSM youll find these options in the right upper corner visible at all times. Please read the beginners pages and make a choice between the editors. Potlach offers a nice vieuw, JOSM a basic mage and ID is IMHO specific for mobiles.
