I think he's really a HD rider who was polishing his bike in the driveway all day

Either way, he's just jealous LOL

Reckless Beemer guy.

I don't know about the reckless BMW dude, but the first time I ever saw a roundabout (one story above), I was in Mexico. My eyes were wide with wonder. Didn't have a clue what to do!

There were a couple in South Carolina when I was just starting to drive, so I learned early how they work. Then I went to Northern Ireland once, drove there a little, and was OK with the roundabouts, but had a hard time driving on the left side of the road. The thing that got me was a Tee intersection, with a little triangular median in the branch I was on. I was to turn right onto the main road, swung to the right of the little median, and had someone frantically honk at me. Not much traffic, so no harm done, but a little embarrasing. Just seemed strange to have to go to the left of the median, then swing about 135 degrees hard right.

Traffic circles are GREAT for moving traffic though. Much better than stop lights. Wish we had more of them. Unfortunately they take up a lot of space, so conversion is impossible in most places. Heck, you can put up a Starbucks, Liquor store, Donut shop, and Ice Cream shop in the space they would need.

I don't want to achieve immortality through my work...I want to achieve it through not dying.
