In the US. I remember World server routing less than 15m. I believe it still does, but haven't tested it in a while.

Why would you be adding segments?

If we're refering back to this query:

I added an "H" connector to allow Waze to route legal U-turns there.

then yes I mark MPs like that not identified or solved.

I lied. It doesn't look like a bowtie is mentioned in the wiki. :oops:

Check the Style Guide section in the in the wiki editor page.

It's pretty simple:
- Delete the four segments which comprise the "box" intersection.
- Drag all eight segments/junctions together into a single junction.
- Set turn restrictions on the four inbound segments

Collapse it all into a single junction, ie. bowtie. It may not be the prettiest, but 1) it is totally functional = first rule of Waze mapping, and 2) is the simplest solution = second rule of Waze mapping.

First, I'd like to say that there is a lot of good information in this thread and it should be added to the Wiki instructions. As far as I can tell, there is nothing already included about u-turns.

Now, for my issue: NO U-turn allowed intersections! All of the above has been about indicating U-turns - but in my area there are many intersections where Waze routes a u-turn that are specifically u-turn prohibited by signage in the intersection.

Here is one such intersection:

How to indicate that no u-turns are allowed from any segment?

Thanks
