Another u-turn is faster than left turn?

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Sat Feb 02, 2013 9:31 pm

At https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=5&lat ... -122.80481, there is a UR which shows the Waze recommended route to go past the desired left-turn at an intersection and to do a u-turn one block away and come back to a right turn.

It looks like this is a "classic" Waze finds it faster to go past, u-turn, and right turn rather than waiting for the left-turn light. The problem is, like many cases, is that the u-turn is totally valid and required in order for southbound traffic to access northbound-side businesses, etc.

I'm thinking there is nothing to do here.

Hmmm... Okay, I'm not thinking. Clearly. :roll: You're correct: it is advocating taking a different route altogether. The u-turn at the light is appropriately disabled, hence Waze routes to it and then back up the other side of the highway.

I doubt I can find the reason without knowing the destination.

I find that to be the case with 95% of those "most users didn't follow the suggested route" problems. :(
