YSSMANNot everyone gets to deal with roundabouts and alpine roads, but we take our things in a different way.
Wolfe2x7I drive through two roundabouts every time I go to work, and we do have two major mountain ranges that run through our country....
Good summaries, though -- YSSMAN picked up on the social aspects of it, and ///M-Spec picked up on the manufacturers' side of it.
ScaffLOL - You still have to admit roundabouts are an uncommon sight in the US, I don't believe you guys get anything like this
The Magic Roundbout
I get that every day on my trip to work, its great fun and helps keep the traffic flowing.
You right about the summaries, social and manufacturers, see kids GTP is a learning zone.
Wolfe2x7Oh, of course, I know very well that they're uncommon. And that Magic one you posted is a doozy.
zOMG!1! American Roundabouts!!
I like them, and they should make going through those intersections really easy, because they're just simple, two-lane roundabouts...
...but NO ONE here knows how to use them properly. If I'm not stuck behind one of the two people who are both waiting and giving each other the right-of-way, or behind the illiterate person who thinks that "YIELD" means "STOP," even when there's no other cars around, I'm almost running into the person who decides to stop in the middle of the roundabout and let someone else in, or almost getting hit by the guy in the pickup-truck who doesn't know that in a roundabout, the person on the left has the right-of-way.
