    I`ve seen traffic circles, but this must be one of them new-fangled traffic squares.

    That`s what they get for driving on the wrong side of the road.

    How do you get like this ? Because idiots ! (the yellow line is here for a reason, it`s the part of the intersection you`re supposed to leave free)

    What I often see happenning: One road leading away becomes congested to the point where it causes one feeder road to miss its green light once or multiple times. Drivers say `f this, I`m not missing another light and move into the box. Drivers in other lanes are pissed that law and order is breaking down and go into the box, causing gridlock.

    That`s why the British roundabout works well. Just give way to the right (or left if you drive on the left). Driver has a good view of oncoming traffic. Once in the flow, it is easy to get out. The only problem is if Americans get confused and go the wrong way or freeze. It`s simple really; here`s an illustration:

    GOD-F*CKING-DAMMIT!!!
    It`s like the second thing you learn in driver`s ed! "If you can`t cross an intersection, don`t enter the intersection."

    F*CKING HUMANS!!! The robots aren`t even going to see us as descent machine oil!

    @ Draculya: I`m sure you`re right about all that. As an American, though, I have to say that photo of yours looks to me like the "Six-Armed Ninja Throwing Star of Traffic Chaos." I would have *no* clue of what to do if I came upon that thing. LOL

    A cop could fill his monthly ticket quota in half an hour.

    We put a roundabout in my town, and almost NOBODY has a clue how it works. They drive up to the entrance and come to a full stop before it even occurs to them to look at the traffic. If there`s another car that`s even close, they`ll sit there and wait...and wait...and wait. On a slightly busy day, the entrances will back up 5-10 cars deep.

    The only time I EVER stop there is when there`s a brain-dead f***tard stopped in front of me which, unfortunately, is most of the time. These @$$holes will run a stop coming out of a parking lot before the roundabout just so they can get in front of me and stop cold.

    I swear, one of these days, I`m going to buy and old beater 3/4 ton truck and strap a railroad tie to the front. Then let `em try to pull that bull$#!+ on me! )-|

    I think Google Autopilot cars are going to get abused and cut up by a-hole road users who know that the robot will break to avoid a collision. Playing chicken with a robot is easy. Once you figure out its algorithm, you know it`s going to give in.

    Old Ollie: We`ve had a number of smallish ones installed in my city over the last few years, replacing 4-way stops. The centers are nicely planted, and the sole rule is "yield to cars already in the circle", aka "watch for cars on your left." Most drivers seem to be handling them quite well, although the odd one takes them to be an invitation to blast blindly through.

    @carmium You`re lucky. The sole rule is "yield to hallucinations."

    I know it`s not Seattle but it makes me think...If Microsoft can manage to get all the bits in and out of a pc why can`t they help Sea figure out their terrible traffic?

    This is what happens when you give a Driver`s License to people who only pass with a 70%.

    When you can be completely ignorant of up to 1/3 of the traffic laws and still be allowed to drive, why are you surprised when stuff like this happens?

    There`s a marked box junction there. Their existence is so people will NOT enter the box junction unless their exit is clear. All of these people are breaking the rule.

    @Draculya, that particular system is called The Magic Roundabout, and is the most complex one in the UK. Roundabouts generally are a lot simpler.
