Generating routes that don't go directly to every stop?

Hi all,

I am a new user of Netwrok Analyst and I was wondering if anyone had some suggestions about how to solve a delivery route problem. I would like to somehow create a rule for a delivery route that says if a stop is within X feet of intersection, then the route must not go directly past this point. In a way I am asking for Network Analyst to find a "route of best fit" as opposed to just connecting my stops. Any ideas?

Thank you,
