There has been recent discussion, perhaps in the wiki documentation forum, about changing the recommendation to always restrict.

The problem is this is the infamous reversing Rock Creek Pkwy. We are not just talking about a left turn restriction, where the wazer can be routed a through a turn a few lights down or right around the block as the wazer would need to do during rush hour. If we always restrict here (and consistently restrict all the other entrances to the pkwy), we would be effectively taking the pkwy (a significant commuter route) off the map.

That's good to know. I spoke with several co-workers and many could care less about map editing. Rather, they simply like using Waze to get from point A to point B.

Still, since we're wishing, I'd like to add a comment to the UR.

Totally agree. Waze says time- based turn restrictions and reversing roadways are interrelated and will likely be new features at the same time.

Right, they are certainly interrelated, as you can provide the necessary information about reversing roads through time restricted turns. However, it seems so much easier to deal with reversing roads specifically than time restricted turns in general. Just force the average speeds to zero in the direction which is closed for the appropriate time. I wish we didn't have to wait for full blown time restricted turns to be implemented to have the Rock Creek Pkwy route correctly.
