Last week I got stuck on the 101 freeway outside Chualar due to a flood on the freeway. After sitting stopped on the freeway for an hour we were turned around and sent back the way we came.
I stopped in Gonzales and tried to work out an alternative route.
If I tried to create a route home, it would always route me through the flood. The traffic view showed no traffic through the flood (because there were no cars there) so it kept trying to route me that way.
I'd like to be able to tell the routing software "don't rout me through this area" by specifying a point and a radius of an area to avoid so that I can force it to show me alternate routes.
This would also be helpful to avoid terrible intersections and bad neighbourhoods.
