And I'm very serious about a instructional video, I'm not sure about you but I'd rather people know what the hell there doing in a roundabout rather than driving in it ignorantly, hoping not to get hit.

And your right if I were at the roundabout myself and someone didn't know how to use it there's no turning back but that's NOT what I meant. I'm saying I'm never driving through that roundabout, if people cant handle the simply one at Best Buy, I don't expect them to know how to use this new one on a road. Like I've said in the past people don't know how to use a 4-Way so they won't know how to use a roundabout so a instructional video would be necessary in my opinion.

But have a nice day, that post from earlier wasn't meant to make you angry.
Oh no, I'm not angry. We can disagree and still have a conversation. I guess we just see things differently on this issue.

I wish people did know how to use them, I believe they reduce the severity of accidents but fender benders are much more common in them. And I hate that our traffic lights aren't syn'd right especially on Memorial Blvd.

And I bet if I opened my own version of Dave and Busters with unhealthy food it would be a lot more profitable than a health foods store, especially in Greenville haha

Agreed. We both want progress in Greenville but I just don't believe its (roundabouts) totally necessary at the moment. Because this is a pretty simple roundabout that they are planning to build and its not two lanes from what I can see, I believe it won't be too bad.

I remember driving to Atlantic City Airport where there are circles. I always got behind the person that would come to a full stop before going around the circle, while the traffic coming from the right was a couple of thousand feet away.

And that's what the horn is for.

People learn... takes some time but they do.

The Best Buy roundabout is small and in a parking lot. Larger roundabouts are much easier to use.

I've been using my horn a lot more lately. I'm just getting sick to death of waiting for people to move.

By the nature of our roads, traffic coming towards you from inside the circle is always on the left; it only comes at you from the right if you are in the circle already, and since everyone in the circle has the right of way over those approaching... except in the UK!

That is exactly what I meant, we were already in the circle trying to go around and the person in front of me just stopped for no apparent reason, it happened all of the time. Yes, I could have used my horn & then he/she would look at me in the mirror, meanwhile the cars coming from the right, that were a distance away were now on top of the cars coming through the circle.
