This is only when there are absolutely no segments attached to the road besides the one you're leaving and the one you're entering.

As Taco alluded to, sometimes there will be a farm road or driveway or parking lot at the same intersection. In these cases, it is especially important to map those if there's any chance at all that any of them could be mistaken for a public road. By that I mean even the worst looking dirt road you could imagine, basically anything but a short driveway with a curb into a house that's straight ahead.

I wanted to warm everyone with a quick heads up, we found some bugs in the BC algorithm, and Waze is about to fix it. This may have some effect on existing roads but hopefully only by adding instructions where there were none before. In some cases where it is now considered BC, they will start to get an instruction. I hope to have more details soon. Again this change only effects roads with some alt names.
