I only know of one roundabout with traffic lights but it's still a prime accident site due to shitty drivers. In fact, any stretch of paved road here is a prime accident site.

Roundabouts are terrible things, and the few I've encountered are a few too many.

There are a small number of roundabouts to be found here. I experienced one, um, once (at the entrance of Austin Straubel Airport).

There are two in the city I live in. I have no problem with them but the Oriental people who come into town for college have a hard time with them. They do keep the flow of traffic up better than a four way stop. Though im that guy who treats a four way stop like "oh everyone else is gonna stop im gonna pretend that stop sign is a yeild and go right through".

My town just built one where they expanded this highway in my town. ****ing stupid. It's a 3-way intersection for f*cks sake. I could see if it was 5+, possibly 4, even though lights work just fine for 4, but 3? WHY?

Do you guys actually have no roundabouts?

For reference these are roundabouts:





We know what roundabouts are, you jerk!

There are several around my area. I hate 'em. They're just... useless. The areas that have them aren't high-traffic, and would benefit from a simple 4-way stop...

Small roundabouts with just one or two lanes are nice and convenient. These seem like hell, though:

I thought our roundabouts were bad, but in France they're even more ******ed. Most ridiculous example:
Arc de Triomphe in Paris


Holy shit it is so dangerous. There aren't any lanes or anything, and the French drive like they don't want to live anyway.

Also, devourke I thought you were murican?

I could take them or leave them. I feel they have their advantages at times, but a lot of times they're just ill-placed.

Go to Swindon. They have the 'Magic Roundabout'



Five mini-roundabouts around a central roundabout. That shit is awesome.
