Americans discover roundabouts

This new roundabout, installed in Kentucky in the United States, has wreaked havoc on automobile traffic, in a country unaccustomed to this practice …

There would be nearly 40,000 in France, world champion in the field: the roundabouts are a real tradition in our regions, and even if it is still sometimes complicated for some users to drive correctly on it, with many errors in the use of the flashing light, the choice of lane or even the respect of priorities, the exercise has become a habit.

An example not to be reproduced

It is not necessarily so obvious on the other side of the Atlantic, where there are very few roundabouts on American roads. A first such copy has appeared in Rowan County, Kentucky, and this video recorded by a drone shows us exactly What you should not do

Motorists entering the roundabout apparently have no idea what to do, creating many dangerous situations

. Some start to circulate on the left, enter the roundabout upside down, while some rare users try as best they can to approach the crossroads according to the rules of the art, while avoiding hit by others.

It is the very first roundabout in northern Kentucky, located at the intersection of highways 60 and 801, where no less than 4,000 vehicles pass each day. It was built to reduce the severity of collisions in this crossroads. particularly accident-prone… Not sure that the statistics are improving!
