A couple of times I've been routed an hour or more down a wrong turn because the "closest" place to turn around was 50 miles away - past dozens of unmapped opportunities. Often the routed u-turn is at the end of a turnoff, so it looks like a normal left or right turn, and the purple route coming back looks like the purple route going out.

(Technically not a U-turn?) Turnouts intended to give tractors access to fields and similar are often adequate.

PhoenixofMT wrote:So basically, I'm watching out for the little turnouts you mention, or nice wide entrances to private driveways, and periodically marking a node there to allow a U-turn. You shouldn't need to drive more than a couple of miles before the client tells you to turn around.

Normalizing all elevation +/- levels for all interchanges, bringing railroads up from -5 to ground or the appropriate +/- if a bridge/tunnel, marking tunnels and bridges appropriately even when there's no other crossing road, etc.
Do you have ideas for handing off the baton for a highway when someone has completed all the segments they have rights to? (that's one thing the NE county-based system handles reasonably well; it corresponds quite closely to editing rights).
