To be honest. those morans haven't figured out conventional intersections with stops signs yet, either.

In the other thread on this, someone pointed out that this video is a "how not to" clip, but you can be damn sure people will watch it and assume it's instructional and illustrates the correct roundabout usage.

At one point someone does it correctly, while there's 4 cars in the wrong lane.  The car behind them chooses the wrong lane.

Every single one of the people in the wrong lane were laughing and calling the other driver a moron.

It is not fake. It is, however, a repeat done-to-death.

Weird stuff happens at new round-abouts, especially in places like the Midwest where they aren't as common.

If you want to see real mayhem...look for the intersection of US-77 and I-70 in Junction City, Kansas. It's very special.

I was just thinking that the intersection lacked road signs and pavement markings, but now I'm not sure those would make a difference.

I hope they set up a 24/7 camera at that. Could be more fun then watching the bridge that decapitates trucks.

Considering most people there aren't even housebroken perhaps expecting them to navigate a traffic circle was a  it much.

I agree this isn't close to the dumbest thing happening in Kentucky.

Their voting record, for example, is far more farking stupid. And probably hurts way more people than anything that could occur heare.

I'm all for rotaries/roundabouts/circles, but unexpectedly running into one in the middle of buttfark nowhere Maryland during a rainstorm, is a harrowing experience.

theyre planning to put in a roundabout up here, in a place thats notorious for winter icing as it doesnt get any sun between january and march. im calling it the carhockey arena...

Technically that is a traffic circle, not a roundabout (at least it looks like one).  Roundabouts don't have internal traffic controls like stops or even yields; circles do.
 
2021-12-03 3:05:56 PM  
I will say something positive:

Drivers in Kentucky are great on interstate highways.  When I was on I-65, everyone hauled ass, and I didn't see any jerks hogging the left lane and slowing down traffic.  Here in Washington, people suck when it comes to driving on major highways....and they can't merge worth a damn.

Eastern Ky is no mans land. Had a friend in high school who was from the middle of nowhere there, and he wanted me to go visit his family with him one weekend. First thing was he had to explain hollars to me. There wasn't much pavement to go around. He wanted to pick up people to play basketball so we went to his friends house, and this dude had horses chilling in his living room. Live horses. In the house. Then we went to the next guys house, and they guy had like 10 broken stoves in the living room/kitchen. Guess he was a repairman. You could barely move. We get to the basketball court, and it's surrounded by electric fence, cause the owner didn't want kids stepping off the court onto his grass. That night, while eating dinner, some dude knocks on the door wearing all camo and had many dead squirrels tied to his pants. He explained he'd been squirrel hunting for 3 days. The next day, dude took me to my one and only cock fighting event. Got so wasted we couldn't drive and ended up sleeping in the open air on top of basically a mountain. Next day he took me cliff diving and then we went home. It was kinda fun at times, and kinda scary at other times. I've been to a lot of countries and never quite seen anything like eastern ky.

It's not necessarily that. It's, partially, that we do not train people how to roundabout.

It's also something that sometimes happens to extant intersections with lots of traffic. People who are used to how that intersection has been since the dinosaurs ruled the earth freak out and do anything other than what they are supposed to do.

Also, people are lemmings. If they see one person do a thing, they think..."Gee will-eclairs (intentional), that's how you do that?".

/ I've seen people emotionally bond with the stinger (the stinger is the part that sticks out past the last axels) of a 53' belly-dump to the point that they follow it  off-road through construction sites.

Don't disagree, but also specifically the US makes it comically easy to get a driving license.  Unless they've upgraded the testing (both practical and paper-based) in recent memory, they basically hand out a drivers license to anyone who can basically turn on the car and drive it around a very easy set of local roads and who can answer pretty basic questions about the road system.  I get that there's a practical background to that given how car-oriented a lot of the country has to be, but it seems like there still should be a much larger emphasis on practical driving skills and rule-knowledge.  As it stands it's pretty much: reach your late teens and aren't completely functionally incapable? Great, here's your license.  Have fun driving a two-ton chunk of metal and plastic at high speed.

I was guilty of this sort of thing when I picked up my car at the airport in Dublin, Ireland. Going the wrong way in a roundabout can  be exhilarating,
 
2021-12-03 3:18:17 PM  
Kentucky? uhhh more like Americans in general really.
Berkeley Ca. replaced a bunhc of 4 way stops with circles in neighborhoods to help traffic flow.
A few years later they put the stop signs back up at those circles, cause ca drivers can't figure it out either.
Now we got lots of 4 way stop circles.
 
2021-12-03 3:20:14 PM  
While roundabouts may be common sense to many, that one seems like it must be brand new. I don't see any double-yellow lines approaching the roundabout from any direction and while it's hard to tell from the altitude, I can't make out a single sign. When you are driving somewhere you haven't driven before, there's often a bit of 'follow the leader' going on, so while still pretty stupid, this hardly rises to "doesn't get any more redneck than this" level.  Someone out there is thinking "hold my beer" right now.

Had friends who hosted a kid from Germany for the school year, and he said most of the kids try to get the US because of the driver's license. So easy here, a pain in the ass in other countries.

That was 20 years ago, and I suspect the authorities caught onto the scheme. Just swapping out your US license for the local license is probably not a thing anymore.

We have some roundabouts in the austin area that are too small for the volume of traffic they are trying to process (I35 & 53rd st for example) and they are hard to navigate.

They did put divided lanes on this once to help with the flow, so you can see people getting in left side of road way back, working hard to do it wrong.  Maybe put those one way spikes like they have in parking garages.  They lay flat when going the right way, go the wrong way shred your tires.  A few shredded tires and word would get around quick.
