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?

This intersection is even more complicated, but the type of layout does resolve most if not all of these issues. Take a REALLYCLOSE look at the junctions to see the detail.

That intersection is complicated, but some of the changes you've made seem to go against the #1 guideline for mapping. I see no purpose to this segment for example. It's just to give a left turn instruction?
