Any objections to this?
I don't think this is a good idea. First, its not really a parking lot road. Second, from a routing perspective, you might as well simply remove it rather than making it a parking lot road. If you make it a parking lot road, I don't think it will ever be used for routing.
I don't really think WAZE should EVER route people via a 'U-turn' when there is another way to get there. U-turns are dangerous, even when legal, especially when there is no 'left only' lane leading to the U-turn. I believe there is a high incidence of accidents associated with U-turns, in general.
When I drive, I try to avoid making U-turns, even when legal. I would rather go down a side street or into a parking lot to turn around.
I always make 'safety of the drivers' my first priority.
