PostSubject: Round About Hell   Sun Jan 30, 2011 12:30 pm

Seen this posted on Facebook by Mike, thought yall would enjoy this thread. I think my wife would have problems with this as well, I don't mind them but they are annoying because of all the people that dont use them correctly.


Quoted from TopGear
Roundabouts are scary, intimidating, terrifying spheres of automotive hell; find yourself trapped in one unable to locate your exit and you have a fine idea of what purgatory might be like.

To hammer this point home, watch this video. Lots of scared, intimidated and terrified motorists completely flummoxed by the rules of this circular monster.

Looks like it would take a little getting use to, but where the hell is this? It looks like there will be a wreck every time someone pulls out. You can tell the people that are use to it.

they are anything but straight forward but they are still pretty simple to navigate... main thing to remember is you can only go right and the person pulling out to your right has the right of way. the problem i see with this one is the fact that there is no barrier in the center which makes it possible not to follow the direction of the intersection.

Reminds me of National Lampoons European Vacation!

I agree with what was said above. In MD and PA at least they fill in the center and angle the intersecting roads to the right so you really have no choice to go right. And the Yield signs help too. I drove through them quite often out eastern PA and you could tell who hasn't seen one before. They made it quite obvious.
