Received the typically empty report for "Wrong Driving Directions." When I asked for clarification, I received back, "The app gave me wrong directions."

He or she must have moved to this area. I just saw a generic error with a description of "chinese food."

If another editor hadn't already commented, I might have been tempted to reply with "What is your problem with Chinese food? It is delicious!" ;)

Thanks daknife for taking care of this, and especially for being willing to tolerate the Michigan at-grade exception.

[I do wish that the message would be changed! I get tired of finding a road overlaying other roads because someone did what they thought they were being told to do.]

Oh god, you're right. I have one editor in my area who does this a LOT and I've seen it other times and I've always thought "Why in the world did someone draw this random L shaped path here??" That must be it, exactly.

I am reminded of the late great Douglas Adams. Perhaps the reporter was simply wearing too large a hat.

It's not a peril if it helps fix a problem, even if you're humbled a bit in the process by not fully understanding all aspects of routing like the Champs and CMs do ;-)

The "ramps" are actually part of a "Michigan Left" exception initially developed and tweaked by sketch, with full knowledge during the process of our RC, GizmoGuy, who also helped tweak the Michigan wiki page for it. It is well-implemented throughout the state, and here is some documentation that was drafted. The two segments are locked at 5 now, but looking it over, the angles entering the "ramp" segments are no longer sharp enough to generate the "turn left" instructions and should at least be micro dog-legged back. The right turns onto the main road for access to the Michigan Left median u-turns from the two different parking lot roads are both legal as well, so I think that that is why the u-turns were so far forward to begin with. It is no longer possible to get to the u-turns from the parking lots, but that's probably minor compared to the amount of traffic being served on the main road. This is obviously the more contentious part...but the at-grade connectors should be changed back as well to meet the "Michigan Left" requirements.
