Adding/editing a difficult turn: added language that DTs can be set in junction boxes and changed "TRs" to "arrows" since we're talking about the interface
A '''partial restriction''' is entered on a segment or a turn restriction. A partial restriction is often referred to as a '''time-based restriction''' ('''TBR'''); specifically as a '''time-based segment restriction''' ('''TBSR''') or '''time-based turn restriction''' ('''TBTR'''). They are used to allow or to restrict certain vehicle types to be routed or prevented from routing on that segment or turn. The TBSR or TBTR means the segment or turn will tell the routing algorithm that some '''vehicle type(s)''' are forbidden or allowed on a segment or turn; or some or all vehicles are forbidden at '''certain times, or on certain days or dates''', or both; that certain special types of travel are allowed.
Note currently only private car , taxi, motorcycle, and taxi electric are allowed to be selected in the app; therefore restrictions preventing trucks or buses from a segment or turn do not have any affect effect in the app. Setting a segment to be a bus only segment will prevent any user from being routed and is the equivalent of a prohibited all private cars and taxi restriction.
Partial restrictions are often used for bus lanes, turns that are forbidden during rush hour, segments that change direction for morning and evening rush hour, bridges and ferries that are only available during the day, and roads that are closed in winter.
In some cases, the turn (typically left-hand) may simply be difficult to make at certain times of the day due to uncontrolled intersections during heavy traffic periods. The difficult turn should not be installed where there is a traffic light or a dedicated left turn lane.

== Overview ==
===Segment restrictions===
The segment restriction method changed in 2017. Some attributes changed location in the editor and some new ones were added.
====Selecting a segment====[[File:Add restriction boxAdd_restriction1.PNG‎|thumb|right|50px]]====Selecting a segment====
#Select a segment so that the name appears to the left of the map editor.
#Select the yellow '''Add restrictions''' radio button (Time Based Segment Restrictions) on the left panel when the segment is selected.
#It will be '''Edit restrictions(#)''' if there is already a restriction(s) on the segment.[[File:Edit_restrictionsEdit Restrictions1.PNG‎|thumb|right|50px]]
#First restriction pop-up window appears[[File:Restriction_first_popup.PNG‎|center|200px|border]]
The toll attribute check box has moved to the first pop-up window of a segment restriction. It used to be under the segment's road type.
[[File:Toll_attribute_box_checked.PNG‎|center|300px|border]]
#Check the toll road attribute in the bottom left corner of the popup box[[File:New tollToll2.PNG|right|150px|border]]
#Mark a road segment as a toll segment only if the segment has a toll booth, transponder reader, or other tolling device and if no vehicles travel as toll free on that segment.
#Once a segment is marked as a toll segment then the toll attribute is displayed under the road segment name. You have to go to the TBSR to deselect the attribute.
#* a) None
#* b) Bus
#* c) FastExpress#* d) ExpressFast
#* e) HOT
#* f) HOTHOV
#'''None''' is the designation for the vast majority of roads; if a road does not have a specialty designation then it is a regular road and should have '''None''' selected.
#The other designations of '''Bus''', '''Express''', '''Fast''', '''Express''', '''HOT''', '''HOV''' are used based on the local usage. The specialty road type has to be selected to get the proper routing for that type of road. As of October 2017 there is no difference in the designations, but there will eventually be different voice prompts for the various types; therefore set the road up with a consistent usage based on what the locals call the road type.
#If no minimum passenger restriction is selected then Waze defaults to have the restriction applicable to vehicles with any number of occupants
# Click the '''+''' again while remaining on the same restriction as the number of passengers to select '''Requires a pass'''
# '''SunpassAlabama Freedom Pass''' is added to the restriction line[[File:HOV Ala Pass Sunpass.PNG|center|500px|border]]# Click the '''SunpassAlabama Freedom Pass''' area and a drop down menu will appear with available companies[[File:Toll free drop down pasessTransponder Pass.PNG|center|200px|border]]# Select the applicable transponder company/pass
#If no transponder/pass is selected then Waze defaults to have the restriction applicable to all vehicles even if no transponder/pass is selected in the Navigation settings
# Click '''Add''' button in bottom right corner of the second pop-up window
# Click '''Apply''' button in bottom right corner of the first pop-up window
# Click '''Save''' icon on the light blue grey Waze bar
#Remember for '''Toll free''' restrictions, the vehicles listed as toll free much be covered by the '''Allowable''' restrictions to have proper routing.
#'''Allowable''' restrictions are set up similarly to '''Toll free''' restrictions; '''Allowable''' restrictions will have a green background[[File:Driving_is_allowed_for.PNG|center|500px|border]]
#In the above situation the '''Lines''' are treated as '''AND''' statements; therfore read these restrictions as to be toll free on this segment you must be "Private car" AND "Taxi" AND "Motorcycle". The user must be '''ALL THREE VEHICLE TYPES''' simultaneously; since only one vehicle type can be selected at a time it is impossible to ever meet this criteria.The first pop-up window looks like this:[[File:Improper HOV Restriction Lines.PNG‎|center|500px|border]]
#Please take a second and look at the last two examples to see how the '''OR''' and '''AND''' statements are aligned for '''Rules''' and '''Lines''' respectively.
 
=====Additional information=====
This is a text box that can be used to describe the restriction or put in a source (web page) of the restriction information.
====Multiple segments====
* Note the directionality of the segments - two neighboring segments can be with different A->B directionality. In one of them the A->B direction can be eastbound and in the other it can be westbound at the same time.
* When multiple segments are selected with different restrictions set on them, they will appear in a different section of the panel under the title: 'These restrictions only apply to some of the segments selected:' Click the ‘Apply to all’ link to the right of the restriction line to propagate the restriction to all the selected segments.
* There is a bug that the developers are working on where when several segments are selected that have a mix of A>B and B>A segments then one way restrictions may not be entered properly. This occurs on both one way and two way segments. So be very careful that they are saved properly. For one way segments, if the restriction is entered in the opposite direction of the road then the restriction coloration will not show on the segment. It will be saved in the reverse direction and can be removed and then properly entered. This occurs when copying restrictions to multiple segments or when entering new restrictions.
== Turns ==
Time Based Turn Restrictions (TBTRs) are used when only certain turns are partially restricted from one segment to another. If the turn is always restricted for all vehicles then use a red turn restriction; TBTR TBTRs are not to be set to 24/7for all vehicles. TBTRs are used to only restrict certain hours, days, dates, and/or certain vehicle types.
=== All turning traffic restricted at all times Turn restrictions ===
Turns that are restricted to all set up for traffic flow or restricting traffic (all vehicle types) are set with '''turn arrows'''—the arrows that appear at the end of a selected segment. A restricted turn is indicated by a red arrow with a red ''do not'' sign next to it (upper left arrow in picture below). A partially restricted turn (TBTR) is indicated by the yellow arrow (lower left right arrow in picture below). A turn that is open (not restricted) '''to all traffic''' is indicated by a green arrow. A TBTR is indicated by For two way segments, there are u-turn arrows that follow the same color indications. Hover over either a green or yellow arrow and a grey box pops up with a yellow "do not" sign next to it that particular turn's turn instruction override selection, the turn restriction selection, and the difficult turn attribute selection (upper right arrow in the picture below)[[Global/Map_Editing_Quick-start_Guide#Junction_arrows|Turns]] [[Image:Lotsa turns.jpg]]Above the grey box is a label for turn to name of segment (if named) or "no street" (if unnamed).
[[File:Lotsa turns5.png|500px|center]]
=== Scheduled turn restrictions ===
When not all times, days, dates, or vehicles are restricted from turning, you can set a scheduled turn restriction from one segment to another. Turns that are restricted to all traffic during certain times of the day periods are "time based turn restrictions". Restrictions can either prohibit or allow vehicles by time, day, date, or type.

=== Difficult turn ===
Note the Difficult turn (DT) attribute box in the lower left corner of the first TBTR popup window[[File:TBTR first pop up window.PNG|center|150px|border]]This setting tells the routing server to add a [[routing penalty]] to the turn, meaning when calculating the time to reach the destination, this turn will include extra time so that other routes are more likely to be selected if this turn is only marginally better than another nearby route. The user enables this option by selecting "Reduce difficult intersections" within the "Navigation" section of the "Settings".
A turn can be considered difficult for many reasons including but not limited to the following:<br />
#A left/right turn where there are stop signs at all paths of travel
#A left turn where there is a dedicated left turn lane even if left turn lane is not an at-grade connector (AGC) (car is protected and if time to turn is long algorithm will pick up)
{{mbox|type=caution|text={{As of|May 2016}}, the difficult turn box is a 24 hour every day setting and not related to any other time-based restriction. That may be something available in the future but not at this time.}}
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
A '''partial restriction''', '''time-based restriction''' ('''TBR'''), or '''time-based turn restriction''' ('''TBTR'''), on a turn or segment means some '''types of vehicle''' are forbidden or some or all vehicles are forbidden at '''certain times, or on certain days or dates''', or both.
 
Partial restrictions are often used for bus lanes, turns that are forbidden during rush hour, segments that change direction for morning and evening rush hour, bridges and ferries that are only available during the day, and roads that are closed in winter.
 
If a turn is forbidden on all days, dates, and times, then use [[Turn_restriction#Turn_restrictions_.28allowed_turns.29|turn restriction]] or [[Set_one-way_road#Set_Road_Type.2C_Direction.2C_and_Elevation|one-way road]] instead. If no traffic will ever be allowed to travel through an intersection, it should be disconnected. If no traffic will ever be allowed to travel on a segment, the segment should not be added to the map.
 
In some cases, the turn (typically left-hand) may simply be difficult to make at certain times of the day due to uncontrolled intersections during heavy traffic periods.

== Overview ==
 
This article covers how to create scheduled restrictions and vehicle type restrictions. Collectively, these can be termed ''Partial restrictions.''
 
Partial restrictions can be based on:
# An entire segment controlling traffic flow for one or both directions
# Specific turns from one segment to another
 
Each of these restrictions can be further restricted based on combinations of:
# Vehicle type (trucks, buses, hazardous materials, etc.)
# Time of day, day of week, and date range.
 
Examples:
* Interstate truck-only ramp
* No trucks allowed between 9a-3p weekends
* No left turn 7a-9a and 4p-6p weekdays
* HOV lanes eastbound 5a-11a, westbound 3p-10p
* Flexible capacity lanes which are a single roadway, but run a different direction for morning and evening commutes (frequently found on congested freeways and some primary streets, sometimes with limited exit or turn options to create express traffic routes)
* Vehicle towing a trailer
 
While this is a very flexible system, it requires what might initially look like a very complex interface to manage the many combinations possible. It is certainly very important that any changes made to any current scheduled restrictions on the map be done with extreme caution so as not to destroy hours of work by prior map editors. Therefore be sure to only make changes to scheduled restrictions with careful consideration and patience.
 
== Segments ==
 
[[Image:Segment info restrictions button highlight.jpg|right]]
 
When no traffic or certain vehicles are not permitted on a segment (or road), you can set restrictions on the segment directly preventing any traffic flow across the segment. This is easier than trying to restrict all the turns that come from other segments to this one segment. Some restrictions may only affect a certain direction, or sometimes a road allows traffic flow one way and then later in the day it switched to the opposite direction.
 
Segment restrictions are added or edited through the ‘Add/Edit restrictions’ button in the left pane (or the ‘T’ keyboard shortcut).
{{clear}}
 
That brings up the "Time based restrictions" panel. Segments supporting two-way traffic will display two tabs: "A to B" and "B to A" referring to the letters A and B on either end of the selected segment indicating the direction of orientation related to the direction of traffic flow.
 
The text below the tab will describe which direction of travel is associated with that tab to help determine which traffic direction is represented by each tab.
 
[[Image:Segment restriction list add button highlight_sm.gif|right]] Click the "+ Add restriction" button to create a new restriction.
 
See the section [[#Setting restrictions|Setting restrictions]] for information on how to set the restriction. Segment and turn restrictions are set using the same instructions covered below. You can create multiple restrictions for the segment to allow for restrictions that might only occur at different times of the day, or maybe the restriction is at different times on the weekdays than on the weekends.
 
[[Image:Restrictions copy to other side.jpg|right]] Once you create the restrictions for one direction you can simply copy all the restrictions to the other direction with the link labeled "Copy all to the other side." Otherwise only one direction of travel will be restricted and the other direction will be fully open.
 
After a restriction is created you can edit [[File: Pencil_icon.jpg]] or remove [[File: X_icon.jpg]] a restriction with the appropriate action buttons.
{{clear}}
 
=== Multiple segment selection ===
 
Multiple segments can be selected at once for batch editing of restrictions. Selecting multiple segments is done by clicking the segments while holding the Ctrl button (or Cmd on Mac computers).
 
[[Image:Restrictions multiple segments.gif]]
 
A few things to note when editing multiple segments:
* Note the directionality of the segments - two neighboring segments can be with different A->B directionality. In one of them the A->B direction can be eastbound and in the other it can be westbound at the same time.
* When multiple segments are selected with different restrictions set on them, they will appear in a different section of the panel under the title: 'These restrictions only apply to some of the segments selected:' Click the ‘Apply to all’ link to the right of the restriction line to propagate the restriction to all the selected segments.
 
== Turns ==
 
When only certain turns are restricted from one segment to another, this method of restriction should be selected and not the whole segment.
 
=== All turning traffic restricted at all times ===
 
Turns that are restricted to all traffic (all vehicle types) are set with '''turn arrows'''—the arrows that appear at the end of a selected segment. A restricted turn is indicated by a red arrow with a ''do not'' sign next to it. A turn that is open (not restricted) '''to all traffic''' is indicated by a green arrow.
 
[[Image:Lotsa turns.jpg]]
 
To change from a green arrow (open) to a red arrow (fully restricted) simply click on the arrow and it will toggle between the options.
 
 
{{NeedImage|Link to articles on the various turn arrow tips and tricks.}}
 
{{NeedImage|Probably include something on U turns too.}}
 
=== Scheduled turn restrictions ===
 
When not all times, days, dates, or vehicles are restricted from turning, you can set a scheduled turn restriction from one segment to another. Turns that are restricted to all traffic during certain times of the day are "time based turn restrictions".
 
{{NeedImage|Insert photo of "no left turn 7a-9a 4p-6p" sign or similar.}}
 
Accessing the editing panel is also accessed through the turn arrows. Select the desired turn arrow and click it until it becomes green. With the mouse hovering over the green arrow you will see a clock icon next to the arrow. Click on the clock to bring up the Time based restriction panel for that turn.
 
[[Image:Restriction arrow green.gif]]
 
You should then see the Time based restrictions panel.
 
[[Image:Turn-restriction-list-add-button-highlight.gif]]
 
Press the "+ Add restriction" button to create a new restriction.
 
See the section [[#Setting restrictions|Setting restrictions]] for information on how to set the restriction. Segment and turn restrictions are set using the same instructions covered below. You can create multiple restrictions for the segment to allow for restrictions that might only occur at different times of the day, or maybe the restriction is at different times on the weekdays than on the weekends.
 
Once you enter the restriction(s) and press the Apply button, you will see a Yellow arrow instead of the green arrow indicating that turn has time based restrictions enabled.
 
[[Image:Restriction arrow yellow mouseover.gif]]
 
To access the edit panel for that turn, simply click the '''white''' clock that appears next to the yellow arrow. If you only click on the yellow arrow, you will turn it red indicating all times, days, and vehicles are restricted. Note that your prior settings are saved and if you click the red arrow again it will return to yellow with the last saved settings.
 
=== Difficult turn ===
{{NeedImage|Update image above and also show here with a highlight on the difficult turn check box}}
 
This setting tells the routing server to add a [[routing penalty]] to the turn, meaning when calculating the time to reach the destination, this turn will include extra time so that other routes are more likely to be selected if this turn is only marginally better than another nearby route.
 
A turn can be considered difficult for many reasons including but not limited to the following:<br />
:'''Heavy traffic'''
:* Turn left across traffic that may be continuously flowing or fully stopped and into traffic that may also be continuously flowing or stopped.
:* Turn right into traffic that may be continuously flowing or fully stopped.
:'''Poor visibility'''
:* Turn (left or right) into quickly moving traffic with poor visibility from:
::* a crest in the road
::* a sharp corner
::* an obstacle
 
A turn can be identified as difficult by drivers submitting [[URs]] or by the direct knowledge of the editor.
 
{{mbox|type=caution|text={{As of|May 2016}}, the difficult turn box is a 24 hour every day setting and not related to any other time-based restriction. That could be something available in the future but not at this time.}}
 
== Setting restrictions ==
 
Whether you are working on a segment or turn restriction, choose the day of week, time of day, date range, and/or vehicle type to be restricted (forbidden). Follow the guidelines below for each setting.
 
[[Image:Restrictions empty panel.gif]]
 
After configuring the restriction, press the '''Add''' button on that panel to save the restriction and return to the Time based restrictions panel. Continue adding restrictions in the same way to cover combinations that may only restrict a few hours per day, but at different times of day.
 
=== Days of week ===
 
Select the days of the week that the restriction will be active. Use the '''Select all''' or '''Select none''' link to to more quickly change all the check boxes. The default is all days of the week. Your display order for the days will depend upon your country settings in your browser and may not exactly match the image above.
 
=== Time of day ===
 
For restrictions that apply all day long, use the default setting of '''All day'''. If the restriction is for only certain periods of time during the day, then select the '''From''' radio button to allow the time to be changed. You can click the hours or minutes fields to enter times directly, or click the clock icon next to the time to enable input panels. The schedule uses a 24-hour notation.
 
{{:24-hour format}}
 
For example, a schedule of 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM is entered as 10:00 to 15:00; a schedule of midnight to noon (12:00 AM to 12:00 PM) is entered as 0:00 to 12:00.
 
The time that should be entered is the local time of the road as on the local signs. The Waze server knows the local time zone and will schedule the restriction correctly.
 
Daylight savings time is automatically accounted for as long as the Waze client app is properly set to the correct local time. <!-- This is contradictory is to whether the server knows the local time or whether it uses the time from the app. -->
 
==== Entering midnight ====
 
If a scheduled restriction is between 8:00 PM and Midnight, then enter "20:00 - 23:59". Technically you can also enter "20:00 - 00:00" to get the same result.
 
==== Crossing midnight ====
 
If a restriction occurs only during nighttime hours and opens in the morning, e.g., restricted between 10 PM and 5 AM, then enter the From time as 22:00 and the To time as 05:00. You will notice an information box that says the restriction will end of the following day. If this restriction is only on a certain day of the week, e.g., Saturday night and Sunday night, then select the day of the week for Sat and Sun matching the ''start'' of the restriction. There is no need to include Monday because it is automatically covered. Including the Monday check box would add a third day starting at 10 PM Monday.
 
=== Date range ===
 
[[Image:Restrictions dates selector.gif]]
 
The default setting is '''Every week''' meaning there is no limit to the date range so as soon as you add the restriction it will be active every week until it is removed. Optionally you can select the radio button for '''Range''' of dates to limit the restriction to a certain number of days. Press the button displaying the date to display two calendars. The one one the left shows the start date and the calendar on the right shows the end date of the restriction. Note these date are inclusive meaning the restriction will include both dates (and all the ones in between) when determining the restriction. When you have selected the date range press the green '''Apply''' button. The date range is displayed in '''DD/MM/YYYY''' format. To remove the date range, simply select the '''Every week''' radio button again.
 
Again the end date will consider the entire day based on any time settings also configured. If the time crosses midnight, the next day will automatically be included for that time period and then the restriction will no longer be active after that ending time.
 
=== Vehicle type ===
 
'''Note: While the map editor and the database support vehicle type restrictions alongside time restrictions, this not true of the routing engine and mobile app. The Waze routing engine currently supports only the "Private vehicle" and "Taxi" types; all other vehicle types are not currently supported. The vehicle type restrictions are available anticipating the release of this functionality to the routing engine and the app.'''
 
'''However, setting up vehicle type restrictions is an important activity, as the feature cannot be turned on in the app until the map has records of most vehicle type restrictions. It will be useless, and give a false sense of confidence to drivers, to enable vehicle-type based routing if the map can't adequately support the feature due to lack of data.'''
 
There are some situations that only restrict certain vehicle types from passing through the turn or segment. Examples of this include no truck zones.
 
{{NeedImage|Insert some photos of real-world signs.}}
 
Also, some turns may be taken by no traffic ''except'' certain vehicles. Examples of this include HOV lanes, bus stops, and truck-only exit ramps. For example, for an HOV-2 restricted road, you might check all vehicle types except public transportation, HOV-2, HOV-3, and motorcycles.
 
{{NeedImage|Insert some more photos.}}
 
The default condition is '''All vehicle types''' are included in the restriction, but if only certain vehicles are going to be restricted, press the '''(Edit)''' link next to '''Restriction for all vehicle types''' to bring up the vehicle type selector.
 
[[Image:Restrictions vehicle types.jpg]]
 
Add a check mark only the vehicles that are not permitted during the restriction period and leave the other types unchecked. Use the '''Select all''' or '''Select none''' link to change all the check boxes.
 
''REMEMBER: These are <u>restrictions</u>. The selected vehicle types will be restricted. The unselected vehicle types will be admitted.''
 
{{Red|NOTE:}} The Waze client app does not differentiate between different vehicle types, so these settings do not have any effect on routing.
 
=== Text Description ===
 
Leave a description for the nature of the restriction. If the restriction is the result of signs or markings, make note of this. If the restriction is the result of construction or road work, leave details about the closure.
 
{{Red|NOTE:}} There is a 100-character limit in the Description field. Entering more than that will result in a "General Error" upon trying to save.
 
== Examples ==
 
The following examples cover specific situations to provide more guidance. Some of the examples below will be turn based restrictions, but the method is the same for the segment restrictions.
 
=== Date range results ===
 
The following table includes example date range combinations and the resulting restrictions that it would generate:

=== Simple time based restrictions ===
 
For a turn or segment that is restricted (not allowed) between 10 am and 2 pm daily, click the radio button next to "From", then enter "10:00" and "14:00" as the start and end times of the restriction.
 
[[Image:Restrictions 10-14.jpg]]
 
Click "Add" to add the restriction. You will be returned to the Time based restrictions panel. The panel should now reflect the added restrictions.
 
[[Image:Restrictions list 10-14.jpg]]
 
For a turn that is restricted between 7 and 9 am, and again between 4 and 6 pm, add the restrictions one-by-one as instructed above. When added, the panel should look like this.
 
{{NeedImage|Insert image of panel with 7-9 and 16-18 restrictions added - n peters to bienville example.}}
 
==== Overnight time based turn restrictions ====
 
Time-of-day restriction periods may cross midnight. For a turn that is restricted between 8 pm and 6 am, enter the From time as 20:00 and the To time as 6:00.
 
{{NeedImage|Insert image of panel with 20-23:59 and 0-6 restrictions added - bourbon street example.}}
 
=== Date-based turn restrictions ===
 
Some restrictions may also only be in place on certain days of the week. For a turn that is restricted "weekends", check only the boxes for "Sat" and "Sun".
 
[[Image:Restriction SatSun only.jpg]]
 
=== Time-and-date-based turn restrictions ===
 
For a turn that is restricted "2 pm to 4 pm, weekdays", when adding the restriction, uncheck the boxes next to "Sat" and "Sun", and enter "14:00" and "16:00" in the time boxes.

=== Time-of-year and holiday turn restrictions ===
 
Some restrictions may only be in place during certain times of year. If on a specific date and time, set the appropriate combination.
 
At this time, there is no way to schedule a yearly repeating holiday restriction. You must enter each year manually. Adding more than one year at a time may be helpful. For example, adding a minimum of two years at a time would mean that you don't need to "remember" to go back to edit in the next restriction right away, or 5 sets of restrictions (to cover 5 years) would make it unnecessary for quite a long time. Unfortunately, there is no simple way to even manually update an existing date range from one year to the next; you must effectively recreate the exact start and end dates for each year.
 
=== Reversible road ===
 
Reversible roads are roads whose travel direction depends on the time of day, to allow more lanes of travel into or out of a city in order to handle the additional vehicle load during rush hours.
 
On the Waze map, a reversible road is set up as a 2-way road, and then the allowed travel directions are set up as restrictions. This is a bit tricky because Waze uses the idea of ''restrictions,'' which is the opposite of ''allowed.'' For example, say a road allows travel northbound only between the hours of 6AM to 11AM. Those are the allowed hours of travel that direction. In the Waze restrictions setup, we would have to ensure that travel in that direction is ''restricted from 11:01AM to 5:59AM.''
 
==== Reversible roads with vehicle type restrictions ====
 
Some reversible roads may also be restricted to certain vehicle types. A common example of this is the reversible HOV lane.
 
Some cities have reversible roads set up that are also HOV lanes. Two examples are in Seattle and are the I-90 and I-5 Express Lanes. These lanes reverse travel direction depending on the time of day, but these lanes are also HOV lanes, so you aren't allowed on them unless your vehicle meets the requirements.
 
Below are the current setup for the I-5 Express Lanes in Seattle, WA, based on [http://www.wsdot.wa.gov/Northwest/King/ExpressLanes/Weekdays.htm the published schedules] by the Washington Department of Transportation.
[[Image:I-5 express seattle Consult with your State Manager to see if there is any criteria for when to add a-b restrictions listdifficult turn. Overuse of difficult turns will significantly affect routing. Entering difficult turns on every left turn along a stretch of the road negates the attribute's intention since all have the same penalty. This would cause a much longer route with several right turns around an area to come back to the destination or have it so that each turn is equally penalized, which is the same as no turns being penalized.jpg]]

While the WSDOT webpage is very simple what the schedule is, only having two entries, to translate that into restrictions is much more complicated.==== Adding/editing a difficult turn ====
{{ReturnTo Difficult turns are recognizable by the lined shading on either allowable turn restrictions (green arrows) or time-based turn restrictions (yellow arrows) whether through a node or a [[junction box]].[[File:DT striping TRs.PNG‎| Editing manual center| the editing manual}}200px|border]]
To add a difficult turn restriction:[[File:Difficult turn pop1.PNG‎|right|200px|border]]
* Hover over any green or yellow turn arrow for the first turn interface pop up (gray box) to appear
* Select the '''DIFFICULT TURN''''s Yes attribute
* If it is not desired to have a 24/7 penalty applied for the difficult turn, then click the white clock icon to the right of '''Yes'''
* The second turn interface pop up (Edit restriction) will appear[[File:Difficult turn pop3.PNG‎|right|200px|border]]
* Add the time, day, or date restriction similar to the [[Partial_restrictions#Scheduled_turn_restrictions|TBTR instructions]] above
* If there is already a restriction either
*# Click the '''Add new''' radio button to add another restriction
*# Click the '''>''' at the right of the existing restriction line to modify the current restriction
*# Click the '''trashcan''' to delete the current restriction (just to the left of the > when you hover over the area)
