Dangerous routing I-5 NB downtown Seattle

Post by Jijilalech
Waze frequently gives me a route entering I-5 NB from Mercer St then exiting at Lakeview Blvd E exit 168A. This requires crossing four lanes of freeway traffic in about 300 meters. I have found it often impossible and always dangerous to attempt this. Waze should not be routing drivers this way.

Hi, this routing is already marked as a difficult turn between 6am-8pm. Please check that you have this option selected.

Thanks. I just enabled it. Still mere mortals using the app will not know to do that and will be put in the frustrating position of being directed to do something impossible or dangerous.

Unfortunately we must leave all legal options open in Waze and let the driver decide in real-time.

The avoid difficult turn option should be on by default. I'm not sure why yours was turned off.
