I doubt it here, unless routing server has changed. That roundabout is not new and has never been an issue ever before.

I just found a UR posted today for a very similar issue.

Screenshot attached shows a right turn through a roundabout for a "u-turn" then straight across the intersection. This may be traffic-related because depending on the time of day, the left-hand turn may be a long-ish wait.

Not an issue since the left turn here is allowed and the livemap shows that the router is sending people that way instead ;)

I noticed that too, but didn't bother to post about it since it can't be restricted unless u-turns aren't allowed.

[Deleting this as I thought about it more...]

Livemap doesn't route like this, so it's possibly traffic-related.

This could be the typical right+u-turn is faster than waiting for the left.... Until someone takes the route a few times, or several people follow the route suggested, Waze will continue to think it's faster. It's all about the math. :)



Aren't there any complaints that Waze will never say "turn left" here?

About half the UR's I am seeing all over Central Florida, Orlando down to Fort Lauderdale, are regarding this issue. In some cases, the users are starting to get pretty frustrated over it. The only advice I know to give them is to change their preferences to shortest instead of fastest routing in the app, but doesn't that really violate the intent of Waze? I mean Waze is supposed to be a commuter app primarily that helps you avoid traffic issues.

At some point we need something more to tell the frustrated users or they'll just quit using the app for this behavior.
