Cowart's Common Room
In a roundabout sort of way!!

Between home and my place of work I have to negotiate eight roundabouts and I have just about seen every variation on a theme of incorrect, rude, dangerous driving it is possible to witness! One spectacular occassion resulted in me being smashed into from behind and catapulted forward into moving traffic! Why dont one of these Daily papers or flashy magazines do something useful and do a few reminders now and again about such things which certainly seem to be open to so many interpretations! Then again there are always French roundabouts..........and I have never understood them!!

AND I notice some helpful advice for young girls re 112 being given earlier can I add some more ...please advise all your daughters and other young ladies to sit in the BACK of a taxi! Whilst 99% of taxi drivers are no doubt extremely trustworthy there is the 1% who may not be.

Re:
Elizabethd's Avatar I remember well going round a French roundabout....to come face to face with an elderly French (I assume) lady, driving the wrong way round the thing. Hooting cars surrounded her, but she seemed oblivious.

Unpeuloufoque's Avatar Our but our rundabouts have wonderfula dninteresting things on them, there are a series en route to Brest with beautiful black and white pillars covered in tribal markings which are no doubt celtic. I always thought that roundabouts are going to prove interesting for future archeologists. Generations of them will write thesis after thesis on the subject of the roundabout , bbc and channel 4 will rival each other producing time watch type programmes in the future each trying to prove they were for some deep religious purpose, human sacrifice seesm odds on dont you reckon SBS?
