    I was behind a guy yesterday in a work van who blew through a 4-way stop doing 50mph. Saddle club and Smokey row in greenwood. Hard to see the cross street even when stopped. Glad no one died
    Reminds me of the joke about the guy running red lights because his brother does it all the time, but stops at green lights because his brother might be coming from the other way...

    As engineered the driver should be in the lane they wish to use and changes in the circle are unnecessary. The problem is that requires looking at the signs or street markings ahead of time and knowing where you are going. To do that people would need to get off the phone...

    This is one at a fairly busy intersection in a NW suburb. A significant fraction of the traffic both northbound and southbound will be turning westbound onto Brand Road. The roundabout is about 120 feet wide centerline to centerline, that's a circumference of ~377 ft. Even at a residential speed of 25mph/37ish fps it only takes five seconds to go half way round it to the exit onto Brand, and if you're northbound and take the inner lane you'll have to weave your way into outer lane traffic in competition with those southbound, and although it fascilitates straight through traffic there simply isn't enough time for turning traffic to get out of the way of such traffic.

    You could make this one lane and it would be safer as well as have just as fast an average traffic speed. The average driver's skill set isn't up to the task here

That irritates me almost more because if I am behind them I usually am looking more at what is coming around the circle then have to stand on the peddle.
    I hit a little Camry that did that - there was plenty of time for him ... and I was looking left....

    minor damage for him, but I actually had to remove my F150's front bumper.

    Too real. I took a trip to Ireland, and was paying attention to the cab driver en route to the rental car place. I was mentally preparing myself for the wrong-side-of-the-street shenanigans. Driver is about to enter the reoundabout, I mentally turn to the right. The car turned to the left.

    In that moment my pants filled with bricks and I had the driver turn back the way we came...

    The set of them on 46 between Terre Haute and Riley are confusing due to the way they chose how to use signs. The first few times I used them, I went on the wrong road on my first attempt.

    Cool. That's how I go visit friends that are further west and off of Brand. I cross the river at Emerald Porkway

    Edit: The one at Brand and Muirfield is a whirlpool of stupidity
