Yes, you have soft disabled U-turns at the dead end of those streets (see the picture below).

But you are right, there are so many of them and it does not worth to hard disable those turns. So in the next release the check will report soft turns on Primary streets and up only.

Thanks again for the feedback!

I have just drew a new street between two single end points, make new segment bidirectional, aloud all turns on the new nodes, delete segment, and ended clearing the "soft turn" detection on the original segments.

So it is due that Validator is checking on single street node and detecting "soft turn" on this disconnected, end of segment node.

Hope this helps, best regards,

Hover your mouse over the problem title in the segment properties to get the "How to fix" instructions. For the soft turns it's: "Click the turn indicated with a purple question mark to confirm it."

There are purple question marks near the U-turn arrows, so you just click them to confirm that U-turns are disabled.


I have seen it and verified there are no U turns. I have also changed all turns red (not aloud turns), save the changes and then turn them green (turns aloud), save the changes again, and I cannot delete the "soft turn" warning message.

May be Validator is checking on the other end... and there I cannot do anything as there are no turns.

Thanks for your quick reply, and keep up the great work you are doing, best regrds,

First of all, congratulations for this great tool you made available to us.

I have an issue that I don´t know if it is some sort of bug or it is just me who doesn´t know how the tool works.

I have many one node connected segment which are highlighted as "Soft turn on drivable road".

Permalink to this situation HERE.

These segments do not have any soft turns on the connected node, I have tried to fix this "soft turn" to clear the detected error, but I have been unsuccesful. Can you provide me some guidance on how to solve this situation ?

Thanks for your effort on giving us better tools for editting, regards from Concepción, Chile,

Excellent - thank you!

Shall we check if a Mnn road is Motorway, if a Motorway is named Mnn or both?

Both, I reckon: check that all roads beginning Mnn are of type Freeway, and all roads of type Freeway begin with Mnn.

Please give me a permalink if you have a problem with this check.

Ah, OK - I thought I'd seen it complaining about a town with this pattern in its name. I'll keep an eye out and see if I notice it again, and give you a permalink if it does.

So, Motorways are either 'Mxx' or 'Mxx[space]<N, S, W or E>'

Yes - the cardinal direction should *almost* always be there (because motorways are always split) however motorways *occasionally* end with a roundabout or a short two-way stretch that doesn't have a cardinal direction.
berestovskyy wrote:Majors are 'Nxx' or 'Nxx[space]<local name, i.e. letters, digits, spaces or dots>'

Almost, except that major highways can also have cardinal directions (just like motorways) when they're split. (although I guess the regex that matches 'Nxx[space]<local name, i.e. letters, digits, spaces or dots>' would also match 'Nxx[space]<cardinal direction>' too, so that's fine).
berestovskyy wrote:Minos are 'Rxxx' or 'Rxxx[space]<local name, i.e. letters, digits, spaces or dots>'

Exactly! (split minor highways can also have cardinal directions (just like major highways) but the pattern for local name should match that too.

Thank you!

Two quick items:

1) I would still really like it if it wasn't flashing freeways at me that are locked at level 3 or above. ;)

2) I've discovered that it will flash to alert you to an "unneeded node {A|B}" when that node is there to let you change states (when a road crosses a state line). Any chance that can be fixed? :-)

Would you consider adding country-specific checks for Ireland? I'm thinking of anything that catches road segments that don't comply with our road type wiki page:

https://www.waze.com/wiki/How_to_label_ ... s_(Ireland)

...for example:

- Only motorways (name begins with Mn or Mnn (eg M6, M18 or M50)) should have Freeway type.
- Only national routes (name begins with Nn or Nnn (eg N5, N21, etc)) should have Major Highway type.
- All Rnnn routes (name begins with Rnnn (eg R521, R448, etc)) should have Minor Highway type (note that some link segments to R- routes can have this type too, so the check should be that a road whose name begins Rnnn has this type, not that roads of this type must begin Rnnn)
- Names in parentheses after city names *are* valid (for example "Blackwater (Wexford)"). We use this to disambiguate city names when there is more than one city/town/village with the same name. The name in parentheses is the county name for the duplicate city. This is only for duplicate city names, not all city names.
- Cardinal direction indicators on motorways (such as the 'N' in "M7 N") are never in parentheses.[/list]

thanks!

12.01.2014 v0.4.6:
- UK is globally enabled
- new BETA check: "Too short U-turn connector", please report any false positives
Currently for H-shaped crossings only.
Few examples: No Street, Berlin 147432364 197852405 197613043 153911044 145487292

- new check: "Same endpoints drivable segments"
For more details see: forum thread
Out of two Validator reports segment with lower road type or the longer one.
Few examples: No Street, Berlin 233522715 201957332 161565780 161565783 148585447

- updated "Unneeded node A/B" checks
Now it takes into account "Same endpoints drivable segments"
Now it checks if the total length of the adjacent segments is less than 1km

- fixed "Incorrect highway name" check for NL
- few optimizations for lot's of highlighted segments
- other minor changes
