Are the restrictions even necessary? If there are turn lanes present,
one should use them. I can see, however, that routing software might
send vehicles through the traffic lights if the turn lane were a longer
route. I wonder if Telenav are tagging to work around their routing
algorithms?

Yes, this is troubling to me too. Have you left comments on the
changesets? Telenav's actions need to be brought out into the open.

I'm really not looking forward to seeing what all this algorithmic
mapping's going to do with Canada's logging roads ...
