Warning: Danger of drowning!

signs? https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Key:information doesn't do justice to their alarming nature. Note they might not be near a highway so are not highway signs.

E.g., near a dangerous pond that every other year has kids drown in it.

OK, apparently the best one can do is the bland: tourism=information

Tag info can be used to see what others have used, or get ideas to make a new one. This is what key= warning lists. https://taginfo.openstreetmap.org/keys/warning But Danger and Hazard could also be used with deep water or drowning risk for example. Your heading " warning = danger_of_drowning " seems good to me.

I tend to use approved items that I find on the wiki. But as this concerns "life and death" maybe something like adding warning=danger, danger=drowning.
