Re: Are there a lot of roundabouts in your area?

The tyres of my automobile like them very much.

Just remember, if you are in the roundabout, you have the right of way not the car entering the roundabout!

We call them rotaries and I've mastered them. LOL

New Jersey used to have a ton of them, but in later years they've been eliminating them for safety reasons. Too many people drive like lunatics, so traffic lights work better. The Airport Circle, Marlton Circle, a circle in Vineland have all been eliminated along with others.

We have some, not a lot. They seem pointless to me.

Yes, and I don't like them. Someone thought it was a brilliant idea, though.

Yep, roundabouts are springing up in my community and they still throw me when I have to drive through them.  I don't trust that the people who are supposed to yield will yield (lol).

Yup, when I was young, and we went down to the Jersey Shore, we went through several roundabouts/circles. It took half a day to get down there and the "rotaries" (as we called them) scared me ! Our 1967 Ford Country Squire Wagon handled them, as well as the lunatic drivers,  perfectly. Woman Wink

 

I much preferred the Jug Handles to Jersey's Rotaries...after I had my Driver's license and had friends over there. They were much safer.

Re: Are there a lot of roundabouts in your area?

We do have roundabouts in my area. More and more are being put in. I do not care for them. They can be very confusing. Alot of fender benders since they have been put in.
