Improve prompts for U-turn
Currently when Waze gives a U-turn instruction the voice prompt is "Make a U-turn ON [name of street you are on]. The problem with this is everyone knows that a U-turn is "ON" the street you are on. However, the driver does not know WHERE to make the U-turn. Map editors routinely see Update Requests where the driver was given a U-turn instruction and thought the turn was at a different intersection than where Waze was instructing them to make the U-turn.
What would actually help the driver is if Waze informed the driver WHERE to make the U-turn. The instruction should be
Make a U-turn AT [cross street]
If no cross street name is available then a simple instruction "Make a U-turn" would be sufficient.

I wanted to update the directions because some people only follow the GPS and might break the law thinking it's okay.

Also sometimes a "turn left, then turn left" is an actual U-turn. Double turn left should be replaced by U-turn.

It would also need to work where there isn't a cross street, like a standalone U-turn in the median.
Need to make sure this works correctly for junctions with JB and without JBs
