Modal filter

A feature used to limit access by certain modes of transport - to 'filter' out some modes! Modal filters are used to achieve filtered permeability.

In a cycling context, the most pertinent type of 'filter' is one that limits access to just walking and cycling. This can be achieved in a variety of ways; either with just traffic sign restrictions (the 'flying motorbike' sign, prohibiting motor traffic, or an 'Except Cycles' plate on a 'No Entry' sign), or with physical restrictions such as bollards or planters.
