I love the efficiency inherent in them. There's nothing in my day-to-day life that is more frustrating than being the only vehicle at an intersection and yet having to wait because the friggin' light is red. This is never a problem at a roundabout. Hint to those confused by roundabouts: traffic in the circle has the right of way. So, if you want the right of way, get in the circle.

I love the efficiency inherent in them. There's nothing in my day-to-day life that is more frustrating than being the only vehicle at an intersection and yet having to wait because the friggin' light is red. This is never a problem at a roundabout. Hint to those confused by roundabouts: traffic in the circle has the right of way. So, if you want the right of way, get in the circle.
