Again, if the junction box isn't a mirage permanently on the horizon, then I'm not worrying too much about bowties and odd internal bars on U-turns. All this should eventually become moot.

Sure. I'm just noting why I'm not putting much time into to perfecting the explanation.

Seems worthwhile to document the current statement of the U-turn prevention, if only to clarify what example can be used to show its not working as we've been told.

Many U turns that were working in the past, that were set to 15 meters, have stopped working. When distance was increased to 16 meters it started working again.

I have reported this in several places, but had no official feedback.


What PesachZ said is correct. If you have WME Toolbox ruler enabled, try to check the actual length of the u-turn segment in decimal. A length of 14.5m - 15.4 m is considered to be a 15m segment in WME, so if the actual length is less than 15.0 m, then the u-turn will be prevented.

Great job! I'm a very visual person so representations like these make understanding the content much easier.

a group of editors have been working on a revised version of this section of the wiki with the goals of clarifying, simplifying and updating its contents using all-new supportive illustrations. The content also includes some changes in the actual behavior of the penalty based on user experience, testing, and reevaluation of the original statements made by the staff so that the guidance is now more precise.
The new draft content is currently in my user space pending review and approval here. Please provide constructive feedback. If there are no objections, I'd like to publish the draft next week. The idea is to publish it as a new nugget subpage of routing penalties, and then transcluded back into this section of the JSG. However to keep the JSG page simple and not too long, the final section (i.e, Additional examples) will not be included into the JSG, there will be a link provided for more info going back to the penalties page.

The revision:
https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/User:TheLastTaterTot/Avoiding_Uturns

The current version:
https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/Junction_Style_Guide/Intersections#Avoiding_U_turns...

For a comparison of what was changed between the revision and the current version:
https://wiki.waze.com/wiki/index.php?title=User:PesachZ/Avoiding_Uturns&diff=120156&oldid=116264


Awesome work! This is by far the best explanation I've ever seen for the U-Turn prevention mechanism and the graphic explanation is also great.

Thanks
