    Are you sure?

    Just a cursory search finds a report of 37% reduction in total collisions.


    Sorry for the poor quality...

    You don't change lanes in a roundabout. Ever. Of course, people are too stupid to master that simple concept, and negligents happen. I refuse to call it an "accident" if it occurred due to negligence.

    People would rather cut other people off than go around again, or God forbid, just go down to the next street and turn. I love roundabouts. I hate other motorists.

    Motorist that cut lanes in a roundabout near me suffer the wrath of my horn.


    Near home is roundabout with two lanes, the road in on out are just one. Tonight, for logical reasons, I chose the lane opposite of the car in front of me. I ended up exiting first and got ahead of him - he was not happy. Yet, afterwards the gap greatly increased so I certainly didn't cost him any time...

    If you're on the inside lane and only the outside lane let's you go to the right, how do you manage to go to the right without changing lanes?

    If you're turning right, then you enter the roundabout in the right lane. But you already knew that.

    That good if you know where you're going, but when I go somewhere in Carmel in the mazes off of Meridian St, I'm usually navigating 50% guesswork and 50% experimentation. I've been in roundabouts and not known which lane I needed until it was too late.

    I'm two weeks into Indiana and still getting used to these roundabouts. It makes it even more stressful that everyone in this damn town but me seems to have a European sports car. The figure 8's and multi-lane ones can be tricky, but I'm getting the hang of it.

It's on the main route through town and that road leads to the industrial park. Most of the factories let out around the same time. If you stop before entering the circle then the next half mile of cars entering from the side will just keep flowing through on each others bumper like water.

    I hate the Fing thing. I'm sorry, but if I'm sitting at the entrance of the circle and had to stop because of a pedestrian then I still believe that I have the right of way to enter the circle before the car that's still 1500 feet down the road behind another 30 cars and still has a couple stop signs to go through. These people don't see it that way though. A lot of times it's actually quicker to go through the 2 staggered stop lights (gotta have them staggered so we can view the wonders of the town) a block away.

    The roads that approach the circle are one lane in and one lane out, however the circle itself is 2 lanes wide, and they aren't marked. That makes it so much fun when someone from out of town drives through. They have no idea and are weaving across both lanes. As soon as the factory workers enter the circle they spread out making it impossible to even enter during certain times of the day.

    If you never change lanes in a roundabout, then everybody should be in the outside lane only (where they entered) so the inside lane can be done away with
