How do you reduce the number of unrealistic facility locations when using loc/alloc?

I am attempting to determine an optimal station location for a fire station using the maximize coverage setting.  I typically set a point grid every with 1000 foot spacing to load into the facilities points for my potential station locations.  On this last model I ran, it placed a station in the "clover leaf" of a 2-highway intersection.  While this makes perfect sense from a pure street network standpoint, its not feasible.  How do you guys manage this kind of issue, apart from going through each facility loaded and removing those that don't make sense.  In my case, this wouldn't really be feasible.  thx for any thoughts!
