Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

When mapping Turn Restrictions in iD Editor, is it sufficient to simply configure the arrows in the diagram, or do we also need to add tags?

I'm mostly unsure because adding a tag like restrictions = no _ left _ turn might only apply to one segment on a road intersection, not all segments. On the other hand, the Restrictions Wiki page mentions many tags, which makes me inclined to add them.

If tags /are/ supposed to be added, how do I avoid indicating one tag for all segments (as mentioned above)?

Thank you!

Adding a turn restriction (in any editor) does not require adding any tags to the affected ways.

The restrictions are modelled by relation objects that contain references to the involved objects (typically a way with the "from" role, a "via" node and a "to" way). iD already sets this up correctly so in the majority of all cases there is nothing further to do.
