a conventional driver won't enter the road either way.
a routing engine may need to make the distinction, and it's distinction
needs to be
made on the basis of local statute and/or policy. you've offered up a
case based on
"every jurisdiction i know of", which is anecdotal evidence at best. i'm
encounter considerable variation based on jurisdiction as i build this
there will likely need to be local policy files for unique cases, but
question is are we going to reflect actual law/policy on the turnarounds
the state of the signs.
we're losing information either way, the question is what kind of
we prepared to lose.
