Cul-de-sacs

Hey guys, not sure if this has been asked before, but anyway...

What should be done about cul-de-sacs when drawing a way?

1.  Draw a straight line.

or

2.  Draw a straight line with a loop at the end.

Is there any correct way to draw it or does it even matter?  If this needs clarification, let me know...

Re: Cul-de-sacs

According to the Map features a cul de sac is tagged with 'noexit=yes'. So I'd go for option 1 and add the noexit tag.

Re: Cul-de-sacs

I've never seen the noexit-yes tag.  I don't think it is nessesery, as it can never have more than 1 exit as its a col-de-sac, as otherwise it wouldn't be a dead end.  The loop at the end of the col-de-sac should have its own way, and tagged with area=yes as well as highway=residential.   There is/was a proposal for turning circles to have a tag for nodes also.

Re: Cul-de-sacs

this is the wiki page where turning circles were in discussion.  There hasn't been much progress though.  Tagging the area at the end with area=yes works, and allows any shape, and therefore this may be why there hasn't been much progression on this wiki page, as it isn't much of a problem.
