Hi,

the 15m-limit under which the routing never does a U-turn is easily forgotten when splitting roads. Therefore, highlighting segments of less than 15m would be a good idea.

Best regards,

I agree -- if the routing server actually paid attention to that.

We've got a UR live right now for just this issue -- an illegal u-turn suggested across an 11m segment.

I've got a note in to Amit, but he's away right now.

I've also heard "10m" mentioned for U turn prevention. So that could be it.

At 10m, one had might as well use an ugly bow-tie...

We just had two cases with no turn at 13m, so 15 seems safe to warrant a u-turn.

This is weird. I have done a few u-turn length at 10m and it works.

Edit:
This is one of the U-turn that is 10m in length that is working for me.

I've had to widen a number of intersection segments to 15m to allow U-turns, and shorten some to 14m to disallow U-turns. 15m has definitely been the cutoff for me based on direct experience with making the changes and testing the results after a tile update.

The editor rounds the numbers, so when it says a segment is 15m it may actually be slightly less, and will actually prevent U-turn. If you want to be absolutely sure, make the segment 16m or more to allow, and 14m or less to prevent.

With the 11m segment allowing the U-turn, there may be some geometry issues. There may be no "straight" path out of the short segment, in which case any path out of it can be used for routing.

So U turns will only be prevented where the segment is also useful as a left turn? That's interesting. I wasn't aware of the specific mechanics of the function. I like that.

Well, it's a standard H-shape (one two-way street crossing a split two one-way street): https://www.waze.com/editor/?zoom=7&lat ... TT&env=usa

Is it a common practice to reduce the width like this? We do this only for a real bow-tie...

Anyway, we are moving away from the purpose of this thread 8)
