"Unofficial" turn restrictions

Postby Machete808 » Fri May 22, 2015 6:58 am

Take a look at this UR:

https://www.waze.com/editor/?env=usa&lo ... st=4347277

I did take a look at this route -- going toward Punahou School, the driver is bound for H-1 West and is directed to turn right at Dole Street and circling around to Clark Street and a left back on Punahou Street, making an immediate turn to the onramp:

Didn't realize how difficult it was until I had a little time to kill this week and tried it. At rush hour I realized how unsafe it is -- traffic coming off or going on the freeway is coming from both directions. There's a big tree that wrecks visibility for anyone trying to make that left (I have a photo but can't get it to display properly).

Actually I ran it a few times, and I had to hesitate so long at Clark and Punahou that Waze started to reverse the routing, going counterclockwise around that circle, which was better -- there's a light at Dole and Punahou, at least. But I tried it again today and it was back to the rotten routing again.

So I've put a rush-hour time-based restriction there. Anyone think this is a bad idea? I wonder if anyone has found other places that are hazardous and in need of a restriction.

At some point, we've been promised, there will be a tool in WME to "downgrade" certain routes, and when that is released, we could remove any such workarounds.

Thanks for the thread. I have talked with other editors who agree it can be a solution, used a bit sparingly, though.

Yeah, went to school at Maryknoll, that turn should be disallowed in real life, it's a real hazard. Then again, people will do whatever they want like making the left turn onto the freeway going north on punahou.

Hmm. That might be a good place to test it.

Does someone here have Beta Editor access, or should I request a new AM area for this?

I do. But I've been a bit swamped lately. Do you want to request Oahu?
