Level 5 Unlock Request/Question - Farmington Hills, MI

When going westbound on I-696, waze does not give you the direction to stay to the left on 696 at the split where "Exit 1: I-96 E / I-275 S / M-5 / Grand River Ave / Toledo" is. It instead just tells you the next direction, confusing the driver.

Is there any way to fix this?

What about keep left? Or does it just treat this as it being a regular exit?

This is exactly what I meant. that exit is confusing because two lanes stay on the main highway and two split. Could a level 5 editor please fix this?

Having the split be with two highway segments and then have it switch back to an exit segment for the right side would fix this issue, wouldn't it?

I still believe that it is too confusing as it is. Even when I was driving myself it threw me off a little bit, and that is with me knowing the route previously. If I did not know any better and saw, "exit blah blah" (referring to an exit after the split) I would stay to the right, causing me to exit out of the proper route.

I'm just trying to give some perspective from an average joe perspective.

Besides, isn't that the purpose of the Wayfinder segments?

Alright, excellent. I'm glad we could work this out. Can either of you fix this issue then? Or should I just repost it as a new issue on the forum with this new information?
