Otherwise, roundabouts do seem to be safer.
Round abouts help release congestion because there is always a constant flow of traffic...
Since when did roundabouts have traffic lights??? Must be there to stop americans pushing...
So true, I almost got into an accident last night thinking I could make it over the intersection before a car I thought was off in the distance. And then there was a car that almost smashed into me. along with 4 way stops I feel its so much safer and way less scary for me . ( btw I am a newb driver )
I promptly got a headache.
I take it you`ve never been through a Washington DC traffic circle. There`s about 4 lights ON the cirle, lights at every road that leads into the circle, the circle is actually *two* circles, divided by a median. They are horrendously designed, and I abhor driving through them because in order to get where you need to go you have to change at least three lanes. In rush hour, these are a nightmare.
Give me a roundabout please, i hate waiting at traffic lights.
I`ve lived in places that deployed both.
Roundabouts any day.
They must have been mentally retarded! LOL, hmm theres somthing being built in the middle of that intersection, I KNOW IL JUST DRIVE THROUGH IT! lol
Hahaha that`s what I think every time I go through a traffic circle! Here that`s what they are called, not roundabouts.
Roundabouts are used for huge volumes of traffic in the UK, like at motorway junctions combined with under/overpasses, so I don`t see the point they make with reagrds to suitability for certain volumes. The trouble is they can be a lot more expenisve than you`d think.
PS Farquaadhnch - most people in Europe drive on the irght, just `lil old Britain and Ireland as far as I`m aware, you can blame Napoleon for everyone else driving on the worng side.
We`ve always had them, and we call them a rotary.
And they suck!
