Round-About

These traffic circles are popping up everywhere. This one just south of Chino Valley has some horse sculptures in the middle.  I hope that doesn't distract the drivers. I don't like the round-abouts much.

Wow!Those horses look pretty cool. In a traffic circle I am usually concentrating making sure I don't miss my exit.

Could cause a problem here, people have a tendancy to trive over roundabouts by accident. The wall would do them no favors and the horses proabley share the s*it out of them

While they are a little tricky to navigate, I prefer the traffic circles to a red light or a four-way stop.

I've noticed that they are popping up everywhere also. At first they were pretty dangerous because most western drivers weren't' used to them and didn't know what to do but, I've noticed they are getting better at maneuvering around them. There is one right in front of the Desert Botanical Garden so I have to go through it a lot and I'm always very careful. When it first went up, people raced through it all the time. I haven't seen anyone do that in a long time.

I like the sculptures very much - elegant and striking.

Roundabouts not so much. We have a few here in Ocala and I guess they do keep traffic moving as opposed to traffic lights, they can be a pain when people who don't know what they're doing stop in the middle of one!

I don't care for round abouts, maybe I am just getting cranky. A while back I went through this one, a minivan was stuck on the thing in the middle.

I like roundabouts as opposed to red lights or stop signs but then I lived in Mexico for several years and they are everywhere there and drivers sail through them at a pretty good clip. Never saw an accident on one.

I am not a fan of these. They really bring out some really rude people.

When my husband first encountered roundabouts in Europe years ago, he didn't either, but now we find them quite efficient.
