Big Detours
Waze routing will reduce the chances of a detour off a highway/freeway and back on that same highway/freeway when '''all''' of the following conditions are met:
# the last segment on the All highway/freeway segments including the last one before the detour has the same street name and same city name as the next highway/freeway segment first one after the detour (the segments are considered need to have the same (alternative) name if either the primary name or alternate names are the same. (Don't mix those.); unnamed segments are not considered as having the same name),
# the detour is more than one segment long, and
# the detour is under the threshold length as defined below.
