Plenty of Youtube gold to watch of people blasting over roundabouts. Sort of a quandary. Put in big rocks and statues, people die. Bushes and berms = impressive launches.No way that is real.
My mother did drive straight through one we have on the island. She can't do that anymore, they put bushes in the middle of it :lol:
A tough drive:I never gave Picadilly Circus a second thought til I saw it and snapped on what that meant.
Pretty much the same in all of Europe. I have been driving all around here for many years and I don't think I have ever seen a the words north, south, east, or west on any road sign unless it was in the name of the town that the sign was pointing to.Note to UK road sign makers: Cambridge this way Oxford that way or similar only helps those who have a good idea where those places are in relation to where you want to go.
I got the pic from a Wired article and am not sure if it's a photo or a photoshop, but it is a real place and really does have counter-rotating roundabout rings with mini-roundabouts built in.Is this some photoshop fantasy?
Roundabouts packed, and no cars on any feeder roads.
All the pedestrians make it look like some DMV test though.
"Right Now"?Pretty much the same in all of Europe. I have been driving all around here for many years and I don't think I have ever seen a the words north, south, east, or west on any road sign unless it was in the name of the town that the sign was pointing to.
I can't for the life of me figure out why they don't use cardinal points on signs. The only reason I heard that made sense was the French started not using them to confuse the Germans if they ever invaded again, and the rest of Europe thought it was a good idea.
The upside is I have learned a lot about European geography, and I have seen some interesting things while I was temporarily lost. Or as I would tell my daughter while desperately trying to find the right road, "Were not lost honey, I know we are in Europe, I am just a little misguided right now, that's all."
I believe the term is "crackers." You know, the locals.if they only alter it a little for the rednecks too..
