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

Hi, I wonder how can I get the coordinate information of a road. For example, several geo position along a road. So that I could use these information to know the position and direction of a road.

Thanks for your answer! Is there a way to export all road segments in a city?

You can use the Export button on https://www.openstreetmap.org for really small areas. For larger areas see country and area extracts.

There's a tricky method: when you are on openstreetmap.org, right click on the point you want to know the coordinates of and select "Center map here". Then, in the URL bar the URL will be changed to something like https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=ZZ/XX.XXXXX/YY.YYYYY:ZZ is the map zoom level, X and Y are the N/S coordinates and E/W coordinates respectively.
