With the validator highlights (update is no longer flashing) and the Junction Node Fixer the tools are now available, but I tend to agree with dbraughlr on an internal fix as some areas are crazy yellow :shock:

Yes, yes it will. But the blinking is nearly seizure inducing... When I'm cleaning up U-Turns and RevCons, the WME Toolbox is a much better interface. Turn off satellite and roads, turn on WMET, and you'll see green and purple triangles where there are U-Turns and RevCons respectively. It'd be great if the U-Turns also included U-Turns at dead ends, since those are the most problematic

That's what a champ said in the French forum.

If it's a 100% no go, Waze's devs should either forbid the possibility to do so or correct that annoying bug (I believe they are already working on it).

No, they should be denied as well - if they are enabled, Waze will route a user down the street just to make a U-Turn - a direction that should never be given.

If this is a rule without exceptions, then it can be applied programmatically. There is no need for humans to find and fix them one-by-one.

I've noticed that. I bumped a feature request in the WME Toolbox forum in hopes that they will add that as an option, since it seems that the champs want all U-Turns in the US to be disabled

WME Toolbox won't show you dead-end segments with U-Turn enabled. Only nodes with at least two segments and U-Turn enabled will be highlighted.

Many thanks. I hadn't started to dig through the add-ons in detail, but now that I have I see some tools that are very useful.

For reference, it looks like the WME toolbox will to the trick, though the U-turn highlights are restricted to level 3 so I will have to wait a while before I can work with that feature...

I'd bet one of the community-built tools like WME Color Highlighter could do this.
