Youre not getting it. The cart wasnt in the roundabout, it was on the cart path that is parallel to the roundabout. When it started to cross El Camino it was T-Boned by the car that exited without signaling.

Oh, I didn't realize that you had changed the topic from general roundabout safety to a very specific case that pertains to only one roundabout that I am aware of. In this specific case, I would agree with you that the design is awful and that no amount of policing would make it truly safe.

Now, back to the general topic of roundabout safety.

I think the both of you, njblue and ed, should get a copy of the brochure and go down to Cody's outside bar and discuss this topic over a pither of beer.

This roundabout "discussion" is making me dizzy.
Bottom line...always think that the other drivers don't know what their doing.

I think we should debate what a pither of beer is.

I think your spelling was quite correct..at least phonetically...that is how it is pronounced after the 1st pither of beer
