I always like the smiling friendly traffic circles ;-)
Yes, me too. Sometimes traffic isn't so friendly.
Made by UFOs?
Unless you see someone making these they could be UFO landing sites.
Interesting signs :-)
I have been enjoying the signs you have posted also.
Hah! Around here, they are finally beginning to add traffic circles. They make good sense in lots of situations.
After a month driving around Ireland, I came to really like traffic circles. They do make sense and keep traffic moving.
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 .
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.

You will soon have your own alien space ships landing!
WIll you fly the space ship you recently found over to one of these circles?
