Hmm, yes that is an issue isn't it. The problem is that many exits are not reversible, so they are simply marked as ramps. This means that waze will not route you off of a reversible entrance/exit marked as a parking lot road. Mike1323 has changed the entire HOV lane to parking lot and has changed the ramp back to ramp type. Presumably in response to this thread
. I believe that should work. This also answers the question as to why its better to make the entire road a Parking Lot road rather than just the ramps.

Anyone who lives in that area knows enough to avoid the HOV if it's closed-there's a gate in front of the lane, or if they can't use it-not enough people in the car. If you go another way, waze can handle the re-route. For these reasons I do not agree with making the ramp a parking lot road.
I don't understand why this has any impact on the parking lot / turn restriction choice.
