Checked old questions/answers and did not find an answer.

The other day I set up a route to see my doctor in downtown Washington DC. Everything went well until I reached a left turn on one of the main roads which was not possible to take due to rush hour restrictions; there were perhaps 5 no-left- turns (betw hours 3 - 7 PM) in a row. It completely disrupted the calculated route and I did not make it in time.

I think this would be very useful but I don' t see any such an option in iD. No U turn would also fall into this category. I did read:

but no instructions for iD. Thank you

iD 1.0 currently does not have full relation support (turn restrictions are built with relations). The upcoming 1.1 release supposedly has far better support. For now simply use P2 or JOSM.

Hi: Thank you or your reply. I started to use 1.1. just a few days ago. It is fancier than 1.0 but do not see a big difference. It is perhaps because I do not use complex editing. Just adding roads, buildings, name places etc. I also tried P2, but I cannot find anything there either.

It was only a suggestion to be able to add these turns, probably too complicated for my editing skills. Martin
