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

Hello, there.

I sometimes encounter destination signs like the ones on the right of this picture: these signs say that Vesoul and Mulhouse should be reached by HGV by taking the street ahead, and that Nancy and Chaumont should be reached by HGV by taking the street on the right. My question is: how should I map these destination signs? In several cases, these restrictions are enforced on a road segment on the way to the signed destination, but it is not always the case: in this case, the restrictions are not really enforced along the route; they merely say the road network manager prefer HGV to follow these roads. Therefore, I cannot apply the destination restriction elsewhere, I must map the destination and the restriction at this junction, but how?

Awaiting your answers,

6 instances hgv=* has been used on type=destination_sign relations, compared to ~3k foot=* and ~1k bicycle=*. (Former favors hgv=designated, latter hgv=yes. Someone for you to decide I guess.) Thereby, you can tag destination= in its usual keys.

destination:hgv= (13 instances), alongside destination:bicycle= (~150 instances) etc, was suggested before. Not very relevant for an intersection here.
