Re: drivable segment has a very acute turn

I gave two rules which should be adequate to isolate the vast majority of divided↔undivided transition.
I think they are easily distinguished from intersections with AGCs. The most obvious being that the two-way segment enters and leaves the junction. In a transition, the two-way stops at the junction.

I have not encountered this bug. Enough people have that it deserves its own thread.

The results should update dynamically when you change elements. Otherwise, press the χ icon to delete old results.

The issue belongs in another thread - not in this one.

It might be helpful if a moderator would move some of the elevation discussion from this thread to the other.

String them together using delimiters, e.g. name + '\t' + city + '\n'.

Report/highlight the segment if at the node:
a) there is a 90±5° right turn

Why not any segment between 80° and the continuation segment or 180° whichever is less?
Of course, when the continuation segment is <80°, it is the right turn.

Ignoring the detail that departure angles from too sharp all the way to <135º give a "turn right" instruction, I still think that the point is that a turn should be expected to be allowed to any road between, say 45º and wherever the best continuation is.

In short, a road which merely requires "stay right" still should have its turn enabled- at least this is what I was expecting. So if the road bears hard left, a turn of straight ahead should be expected to be permitted even if 185º.

I think another way if saying this is that any road that can be reached without crossing traffic is the opposing direction, why is the turn not allowed?
(Yes, bypass roads like AGCs are such examples. I'm not asking. I'm just saying that this is the essence of the question that the validation asks.)

I was referring to the angle as measured from the current segment, not in degrees of turn.
So the angles I gave need to be subtracted from 180 to get degrees of right turn, e.g. 180° - 185° = -5° right turn (a turn slightly left of course).

Re: title case is correct

As mentioned, we already hashed out this issue regarding #170 and there is a thread on the topic of capitalization. I invite you to contribute to that discussion.

I checked two of your examples from the street view. Clearly, Title case is used. Not only are the words you mentioned capitalized at the beginning of the name, they are capitalized in the middle of a name. I believe that the names you cited should be fixed in Waze to conform to the official spelling.

Conclusion: A street name starting with a lowercase letter is not something that should pass validation.
