I’ve noticed that we seem to have a lot of gated roads in India. I thought all of them were access=private, but it turns out many roads have gates installed just to prevent thoroughfare/streetside parking. Tagging such roads as access=private would be inappropriate, since if you want to walk/cycle in, its perfectly legal to do so. Even cars are allowed, but only if they need access to one of the properties on the road. I think we can instead move to tagging such roads with access=destination, or perhaps more appropriately motor_vehicle=destination. access=private would only apply to roads belonging to gated communities, where legal access to the general public is restricted.
