Two-way segments will also show the small U-turn arrow icon at both ends of the segment. This is used, as its name suggests, to prevent/enable Waze to use a segment end node as a U-turn, in case of necessity.

Keep in mind that Waze is used in all kinds of cars, big or small, driven by drivers of varying experience and talent, with or without a trailer. Also remember that we never know what the traffic situation is the moment a Wazer is driving somewhere.
We are therefore extremely reluctant to allow U-turns. And if we do that, then only in places where there is enough space to make a U-turn in one smooth movement. This is often only possible if there is a connecting segment of sufficient length between 2 roads.
A curved green arrow indicates that a u-turn is allowed in the manner and direction indicated by the arrow at that end of the segment.
When you hover the mouse over an allowed u-turn arrow, a small clock icon appears, which, when clicked on, allowed you to set scheduled u-turn restrictions, as well as vehicle type restrictions on the U-turn.
A curved red arrow with the slashed-circle icon indicates that a u-turn is not allowed (is restricted) in the manner and direction indicated by the arrow at that end of the segment.
A curved yellow arrow with a clock icon indicates the presence of scheduled (time-based) turn restrictions for the direction indicated by the arrow at that end of the segment.
