    1. After a month driving around Ireland, I came to really like traffic circles. They do make sense and keep traffic moving.

  5. I am with Jack and you that in most cases they really make sense. Especially in Europe I think where everything is much more crowded: too many cars in relation to the available space.

    But really - sometimes I have to smile. Traffic circle were a kind of a craze ... every small town and village got one. No, not only one, but two, and three ... with approx. a traffic amount of five cars per hour .

    1. But they do change the kinds of traffic accidents that occur at intersections. And they provide a place for a civic garden in the center.

    2. http://maps.google.de/maps?q=50.028235,8.220891&hl=de&ll=50.02822,8.220851&spn=0.000899,0.001552&sll=51.175806,10.454119&sspn=14.400346,25.422363&t=h&z=20

      regarding accidents this is our most famous circle --- drivers get distracted by the red frogs sitting there and wham! they are inside the circle.

      I hope the googlemap link works.
