At a simple crossing of two roads (no traffic islands, no turn lanes)
you do not map the lines which are described by a car turning to the
right/left. You just map the two roads and their intersection.

I agree that collision detection is a purpose which has to be kept in
mind but I hope that the requirements of collision detection can be
fulfilled by adding the radius of the diverging track (assuming that the
curve is no clothoid). Except some exotic points, there are only a few
different point radii in use in Germany.

Best regards
