Left Turn w/No Red Light at Rush Hour - How is that Faster?

If there is a single criticism of TomTom's routing it's that it will try and send me onto a 'faster route' where to get there I am on the opposite side of the road - have to turn into traffic - and it's a normal no red light intersection.

This appears to be tied to an obsession to put me on the original recommended route which I rejected - long after I rejected it. It cannot possibly be taking into account that in order to get back onto that route that I must turn against heavy traffic.

The routing software should be updated to avoid left turns against traffic unless absolutely necessary.
