Implement U-turn navigation instruction and ability to allow u-turns at intersection.
In exUSSR countries it is a common practice to use u-turn. Traffic lights at major intersections may have special arrow to allow only left turns and u-turns. But currently Waze cannot use this feature to build optimal route.
In many countries U turns on major roads are illegal as its a dangerous premise to allow them.
Tomtom is a prime example encouraging drivers to do this where its illegal in the UK, if this feature was implemented it would have to be carefully locked off geographically per country that forbids it.

Yes ! Please implement U-turns!
Now, UTurn is ok on WME and APP... is not ? :-)

I can only access my workplace when coming from one direction. In the other direction, you have to make a U-turn. Recently someone un-devided the street and now Waze does not use the U-turn any-more. This is very annoying since the selected routes are now completely biased.

+1 for Russia.
Waze routes are longer than normal for 10-20 minutes due to this problem

Have you tried using report map error functions? This will allow map editors update navigation potentials
It is common in the USA also

Ja, ja, das stimmt!
In Russia, the U-turns are very necessary!
