I'm kind of stumped as to why it's routing people on the ramps. Cartouche says the freeway has an average speed of 113 km/h, the ramp segments are all lower than that, and the ramp segments together are longer than the freeway adjacent. So it must have been some heavy traffic.

There was no traffic when I passed through the area. I had the same expectation that it would not route ramp-to-ramp if the route was continuing down the highway. That's why I was initially questioning whether the turn restriction was required or not. Based on the feedback, it sounds like this is something that may need to be refined in the route calculation logic, but we can use the restricted turn as a solution for now.

Exactly. It's a proven workaround.

WYSINWYG. ;) The speed data that shows in Cartouche is not what is used by Waze routing; the actual speed data that is used in its calculations is much more complicated, based on the segment's average speed at that time of that day of the week.

This was my first time through the area running Waze and the rest of the route was pretty sound.


Although this "fixs" the issue you have, it creates another problem. Editors are software restricting a legal motor vehicle move.

If one where to accidentally take the exit, and needs to route back on the highway. Countless other occurrences could happen to require to need to return onto the highway. Not only that, it's LEGAL to do so, and should be allowed.

Based on principle, Waze should be allowed to route you back onto the highway from an exit ramp.

The core problem is in the Waze code and that's where the fix needs to be done. Wouldn't you agree?

I've looked for ways to report to Waze, code issues, but never can see them. How does one do this? I am not a fan of user "fixes" in software to avoid core software issues. Waze needs to do their job and make good software.

This thread is over a year old. Please see the forum rules. Locked.

There is a more current discussion about Ramp-to-Ramp routing - which is actually ILLEGAL in most places.

EDIT: I found the other thread for you: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=56092
