Traffic avoidance?

Not getting that behavior with the permalink right now though.

This seems really odd to me. If I open the permalink to the live map that I gave above and then click the permalink again I get a new tab with the route. If I do this repeatedly I get bunch of tabs open with route highlighted. I currently have seven tabs open with the route. In three tabs the route is the correct left turn. In the other four the route is a right turn and then U-turn. The UR shows that the right and U is also used at least some of the time by the routing server when providing routes to the clients. But if waze can route through the left turn, why would it ever make the right and the U-turn? And why would I get different results when asking for the same route seconds apart?

I know this intersection could be simplified. But why does waze route like this?
