drb9: This Looks Fun: I am clearly part of the problem.

You ARE part of the problem if you can't handle it.

I'm pretty sure there's a rule or a corollary to a rule somewhere that says you can't start and win an argument whose basis is agreeing with the thing you argue against, but just in case there isn't, congratulations on a hard-fought win.

Cheron: Maybe he is from Boston where this is allowed 8:00 Am to 10:30 AM and 3:00 PM to 5:40 PM except or the third Tuesday.

Yes, but what you're after is a royal fizzbin, but the odds in getting a royal fizzbin are astron... Spock, what are the odds in getting a royal fizzbin?

This Looks Fun: Having been the reason for a wreck in a DC traffic circle, I am clearly part of the problem.

In my defense, this is the "circle" in question.

I hit that one for the first time a couple weeks ago. I didn't get why there was a circle there, which made it difficult.

I have a theory that in DC while building roads they walked a quarter mile, rolled two dice, averaged them, and then put that many lanes there. If they rolled doubles, they put a traffic circle there.

CSB time....

My friend and I risked our *lives* running across 6 or 7 lanes of traffic to barely make it to the ADT in Paris.

Having grown up in DC it was almost akin to running across the Beltway. I swear it was almost suicide. We high fived and pulled our underwear out of the crack of our behinds once we made it over. I swear I felt like frogger when we both turned and looked and saw this....

A MUTHERFARKING Pedestrian tunnel that goes beneath the street! WTF!!!!!!

We were so pissed. It seriously was not very well marked at all. JEBUS

bkosh84: rize7: Anyone calling it a "traffic circle" and not a roundabout is part of the problem.

Are you guys talking about a Car-go-round?

I thought the rule for traffic circles in DC was to close your eyes, mash on the gas pedal, and hope for the best. Am I wrong?

ugh, of course you're wrong. You forgot the part about laying on the horn and weaving in and out of traffic while zooming up to someone's bumper. You obviously haven't been driving very long.

I'm assuming subby has either never driven in DC or is a lost DCist commenter (thus oblivious to Washingtonians being the worst drivers in America).

Where IS that??

It's in Swindon, UK. Known locally as the magic roundabout. Never actually gone through it but it looks like fun!

bigmoneygrip: South Louisiana is supposed to get some traffic circles soon. Might be an interesting afternoon to sit outside in a lawn chair with some beer and watch the inbred retards we have for drivers here try to successfully negotiate it.

well, new orleans has lee circle... but, it has lights in the traffic circle. so, it's kind of a failed traffic circle. but, at least you can just get out of your car and get drunk at the circle bar.

Subby, nobody knows how to handle DC traffic circles. Or any traffic circle, for that matter. They exist solely as a source of amusement for traffic engineers, and if you want proof of that just take a drive down Route 15 from Warrenton to Leesburg.
