    Not as confusing as the Swindon Roundabout which is a big roundabout with 5 smaller roundabouts in it

    Good thing that is not in Vancouver as we would have green painted paths transecting each direction (point to point) for right of way for bicycles.

    Man, I got off a long flight from Vancouver to Gatwick (Crawley just outside of London) once. Had a nap and walked outside. Roundabout there - looked the wrong way and was almost smoked.

    That roundabout is great but its benefits require an IQ above 80 (or some genetic experience in driving motor vehicles). Not appropriate for our region.

    earlier this year I rented a car in scotland..in addition to trying not to break the driver side window looking for the shifter, getting my first look at a multi lane roundabout at night in the rain was...really fucking interesting.

    Just putting a windshield in front of the local Canadian drivers in my town is enough to cause confusion....

    and ridicule from the girlfriend for trying to rest my arm on the window...and forgetting that it was on the other side. "what exactly are you doing with your arm?"

    Hahaha! I can picture that! I had my wife assisting me the whole time, that made it much easier. By myself would have been a bigger problem.

    I'd love to see an areal video of traffic going through it. Looks crazy.
