Understood. Looks like turn restrictions were either not set up correctly or are completely failing. Maybe the problem is a turn restriction is just a super high penalty. When the alternate route is 8 hours around the mountain Waze gives up and sends users that way anyway.

I didn't see anything similar in Bugzilla, so I created https://bugs.waze.com/show_bug.cgi?id=6320 . Please vote if you have access.

I also find it a bug that you can't put seasonal restrictions (i.e. restriction that repeat yearly) in place. It seems to me if you have to edit the road for each season, then disconnecting the road is the better course of action at this point.

I added both notes to the reported bug.

On the seasonal work around today, why not put in 5 or 10 restrictions that are for each upcoming year. I realize that is only good until 5 or 10 years from now, but that is better than having to go back every year until we get annual events added.

The reasoning behind that is if you are planning to go to the park you would know that you would have to pay to go in and there is no real advantage marking it as a toll, but for people that want to go from point a to point b and it happens to go through the park but you have to pay, then that is a toll for that person. We had been getting several URs regarding the issues about being routed through the park from one side to the other and was not told there would a toll.

So currently Yosemite has the entrances marked as a toll, a place like Bryce does not.

Setting the entrance to the park as private would cause other issues. I would never get a route through the park. But with it set as a toll and I am willing to pay the toll, then that would be one of the option I would get from one side to the other.

We should probably add something to the Wiki on this for Toll Roads.
