And a one, and a two

This is the thread that never ends
Yes it goes on and on my friend
Some people started reading it
Not knowing what it was
But people kept adding more just because

So I ask you . . .who's stupid???
It's b=obvious to me after driving here for three years and observing that the round abouts do work.

The reason that we have five pages of comments is that a very few people on this forum don't agree. Don't forget, about half of these post are people saying that the circles work. And you also should realize that the people who post on this site are a very small percentage of the people that live here and only a small percentage of them are complaining about round abouts.

I haven't read every post, but I haven't heard anyone call anyone stupid. So I don't think that we should start now.

As I said, I can't recall any accidents at any of the round abouts. I'm sure there must have been some as there are accidents on all types of roads, but I haven't read or heard about one at a circle.

Why is it obvious to you that the circles don't work? I read back page after page after page in search on all things pertaining to roundabouts, going back six years and I can find only two mentions of an accident in a roundabout. One was a huge moving truck that caused an obstruction. The other was a drunken truck driver who plowed into the middle down by the dog park where there is a building in the center.

Maybe I don't know what I am talking about and someone can remind me of accidents. And of course because of open discussion they will.

I have navigated them several dozen time now, and have not ran over anyone.
It is fair to say I suffer from low wattage .

As I said before, the RAB's work just fine, this thread demonstrates that it's the people that don't know the very simple navigation rules.

BTW, are there and circles on the Ponderosa?

Can't argue with that. If only the people didn't use the circles they would be safe for the rest of us.

Oh Tom, you're so silly! I liked your little poem/song. Should I sing it to a particular tune when I traverse the RAB's? I'm thinking of a song by Yes.

I'm in a roundabout
And I can't get out
I'm in the wrong lane
What a friggen pain

call it morning madness in and out the alleys
in and around the bout
drivers cut in and out
watching for others who just stand there

call it morning madness in and out the alleys

[i'd look on my album cover for the lyrics but I wore the cover out in the 70's]

Could it be the one lane roundabout suggestion?

Oh. Oh. I wonder which group I fall into. (Maybe "fall" isn't a good choice of words.)
