      not OP or the creator, but I've seen several roundabouts just like this. In the US they're usually terrible and every time I've been on one at least 1 other car clearly has no idea what to do and just stops at the wrong place and time if they're a woman or elderly.

          Americans only recently have been introduced to these dumb monstrosities that don't improve traffic. It'd be like giving eurocucks freedom of speech, they'd start talking about how much they love sucking wiener, they've never had free speech before.

        This is a video game OP. Touch grass.

        Stupid drivers aren't the fault of the roundabout. Even with a dumbass driver in the mix the roundabout is still safer than a traditional T intersection as theres less chance of T-bone accident.

          Disagree. I've heard they're safer and faster but I don't think you can confirm that in the US. In the eurozone where they do not frick around with years-long licensing, they force you to be a good driver there. Here in the US if you can nice like a normal human being for 15 minutes to the instructor and take an east 50 question multiple choice test they'll give youa license. Even then, we have so many moronic immigrants and blacks that don't give a frick more than half the drivers on the road are probably legally moronic and shouldn't be driving.

          On paper I agree with you they should be safer. Talking with an insurance adjuster friend they say there are more t-bones at low speeds at roundabouts than there are high speed t-bones at traditional X-intersections.

          For many euros having a washing machine and no dishwasher is normal for them, US we'd shit our pants if you tried to sell a tiny kitchen with just a clothes machine and no dishwasher.

    They work great unless you get two heavy input streams, where the first stream to enter can completely block the second. Here they’ll add a traffic light To the first stream in that situation.

      This is a real problem, they built a bunch of roundabouts in my city without any thought behind them and they always get backed up like this. If you come from the low-volume direction you'll be waiting 10 minutes for a gap. Pedestrians also avoid them entirely because cars are whipping around the circle and exiting at 60kph.

    The only thing I hate about roundabouts besides the general population being too moronic to know how to use one is the expectation of using the turn signal in any meaningful way. Especially on the smaller radius ones. Exits are too frequent so when your exit comes up, it'll be one for not even 2 seconds before you're committed. Not really enough time for other drivers to react so most people just err on the side of caution assume that you're probably not exiting which means people are just going to yield more often than they have to.

    If you add lights for every entry, they became just as efficient as a regular intersection. They problem is that traffic engineers insist in making them traffic circles and make the cars stop inside the circle.

    It's not the roundabout that's the issue here. I mean other than being a video game screen shot.

    One roundabout I know had to be added traffic lights for rushhours. They stop working when traffic is too high

    I've seen a couple 2 lane ones in Connecticut that work. Ones down in Florida are usually single lane small radius with people speeding, so yields are always stops.
