Multiple times in Key:access - OpenStreetMap Wiki article “right of way” phrase is used.
This phrase has two meanings:
- To have a priority (for example on a junction or crossing)
- To be allowed to traverse a way
While it’s understandable for me from context that meaning 2 is used, it still may create some confusion. I’m in a long changeset discussion just because of it. Shouldn’t we avoid phrases which have a double meaning?
English is not my native language, so maybe I understand something wrong or this is some kind of American vs British English issue.
If my concern is valid, maybe someone could come up with a better alternative and edit the article?
