We currently use the NavteQ database for Europe. Their specification
includes two ways for specifying travel direction. For small streets,
they usually use a single-char attribute that tells whether this street
can be driven forwards, backwards or both ways. For larger streets (e.
G. highways), they usually seperately specify the lanes for the
different directions, with correspondingly different geometries.
