I recognize that this is not a feature of the client app, but of the routing server.
As a map editor, I am seeing a lot of "wrong driving direction" and "turn not allowed" reports from wazers reporting that waze wants them to avoid a left turn or a straight-across-the-intersection in favor of a right turn, extra distance, and a u-turn to get them back to where they would have been doing the sensible thing.
They are not seeing the long waits that would make sense of the extra time, distance, and stress of the extra maneuvers, and they assume that waze is just doing something wrong.
This has happened to me a couple of times this week :
Rather than leave the A14 at my usual exit, waze wanted me to carry on to the next junction & come back on myself. What isn't clear here is that the A14 was solid all the way from the junction before, so I didn't even try to join it!
And this is a "turn left and uturn rather than turn right" similar to what you were discussing....
On journeys I know, I can ignore waze. It's on journeys I don't know that I end up following stupid routes & wasting time... And it's those journeys that you need to be able to trust your satnav!
The trust I had in waze is going, what with the removal of the "share a route" feature unless you provide address book access, and now very basic routing errors...
