I have added a few stoplights following the idea of placing the node at the point where the cars stop. I just checked osmose and I'm getting warning 7090, node on ways; class 3.[]. I'm not really sure what this means but it sounds like the node is not on a road . One such node is . Ive tried to place the node in the center of road right over the white stop line that I can see from the satellite image. Ive also notices that this error comes up a lot all over the world. I'm just learning OSM so any help or guidance will be useful. Thanks

Note that in OSM there is a difference between "node on top of a road" and "note part of a road".

Not familiar with Id, but I think a single click will place a point on the map but you need to double-click to make the point join the line of the roadway. Then when you drag the node for the lights the road will move too, confirming it is joined correctly.

Thanks, that was the clue I needed. It looks like I have attached the traffic light tags to a node that is part of the highway. Still dont see a change in osmose but I'm not sure how to tell when that program's analysis has been updated.
