Here is another example of a user that thinks this is bad routing:

Not too strange, it was a cut and paste error that I saw and corrected.

I suspect you're just destroying the speed data showing the right is significantly faster than the left.
I have one (discussed here) that has been repeatedly torn apart over the past year and put back together by different editors. URs show the intersection will occasionally route right/U again.


Interesting discussion.

By the way, the FIRST TIME I clicked on your link it took me to the wrong topic!
viewtopic.php?f=143&t=1702
rather than
viewtopic.php?f=143&t=17026
for some reason! When I tried again, it worked fine.
STRANGE.

Hmmmm. I'll try that if the problem persists. Thanks for the suggestion!

I have done something similar with junctions that 'have a bad node' that simply refuses to connect.
I use a small temporary segment connected to each segment near the bad node to 'trim off the end' of each segment.
Delete all the cut off ends and temporary segments.
And then connect the 'freshly trimmed ends'.
This has 'fixed' the 'bad node' problem, every time.

Agreed. Those are the factors to balanced. Although, I don't think waze will route through a parking lot segment to get to an address on the northbound segment. I think waze will just skip the segment and go to the next to make the U-turn. But as you say, we don't really know.

Ok, but it seems to me that is an argument for removing the segment as U-turns are its only function.


Yes, but if I remove it, and someone running WAZE uses it, then WAZE will pop up a 'Map Problem' and ask for it to be put in. Someone will come along and put a street there.

THAT is why I prefer to put a 'parking lot road' there.
Then, WAZE will not flag it as a problem when people drive thru it, but it won't route them through it 'unless absolutely necessary.' (like to get to an address on northbound segment.) [at least that is how I understand what would happen. I am pretty sure that NO ONE really KNOWS what WAZE will do, a large portion of the time, because it is rather complex. :) ]

When I drive, I try to avoid making U-turns, even when legal. I would rather go down a side street or into a parking lot to turn around.


Don't drive in Michigan. They make you go past the street to make a left, loop around and come back to make a right. Now most busy intersections have a stop light for the Michigan left.
