Web site doesn't use much shorter route. Forces user to go 80 miles out of the way. No problem when directions are reversed.

Description: When planning a route from Ocean City, MD to Annapolis, MD, the web site tells the user to take an unnecessary 188 mile path, when a 108 mile path exists.  Interestingly, when the trip is reversed (from Annapolis, MD to Ocean City, MD), the website recommends the shorter 108 mile path.
Type: webpage
Replication Steps:
  1. Using link above in either desktop versions of Chrome or Firefox, you'll see the longer and unnecessary 188 mile path.
  2. Next, reverse your starting and end points and calculate the route.  You'll then see the shorter 108 mile path.
