For example, if the angle at which a local road meets a highway is 20 degrees, Waze will instruct a user turning off the highway to "EXIT RIGHT" (assuming right hand drive countries). If we consider this a 'turnoff' ''(at grade junction)'', and not an 'exit', we will want to force Waze to treat it as a 'turn'. By making a tiny crook (the micro-dogleg) at the very start of the local segment, we can have the final piece of the segment meet the highway at 90 degrees, and cause a turn instruction.<br><br>See the [[Junction Style Guide]] Wiki Page<br>See the [[How Waze determines turn / keep / exit maneuvers]] Wiki Page|related1=Dogleg|updated=2015-10-09|added=2015-01-12}}
