Ignoring limited-access highways and highway ramps

#1

I’ve been pressing the ignore button on highways and highway ramps in my city.

It seems like this should be done automatically and in bulk by excluding the OSM tags highway=motorway and highway=motorway_link at import time.

In my experience, OSM tagging wasn’t reliable enough to apply to my imports… maybe it deserves a second look, though.

In general, I would agree with you. However, tags such as highway that are used for rendering map features tend to be pretty reliable.
