So cool, so cool! I love the quirky nature of Vancouver and its environs. I have a soft spot for roundabouts too, having lived 15 years or so in Milton Keynes – where they’re bred competitively. But, the king of all roundabouts has to be in Hemel Hempstead. Not to be outdone by Danot, they have their own special Magic Roundabout. A roundabout surrounded by roundabouts. Not for the faint-hearted… or tourists!

Ha! The Plough Roudabout! I’d never heard of it until I approached it and saw that sign. Of course my immediate thought was ‘What the f-‘!

I didn’t realise they had roundabouts in Canada. I always thought it was more of a European thing. Although I have read that they’re gaining popularity south of your border.

Roundabouts are actually pretty common in BC. At least in the Lower Mainland. A few people seem to struggle though.
I have a very good friend from the UK that went skiing in Aspen. Visitors were given a 16 page booklet on how to negotiate roundabouts. It was THAT complex a concept for the average visitor!
