I'd say they're A15 near Gennevilliers. Perhaps the bridge across the Seine. There aren't that many 2x4 motorways in the Paris region.

I think you are right, because in the folder where the pictures are on the CD those 4 pictures are right before the last 2 ones on my post which I am sure that are on A15 (Argenteuil exit + I remember we went at IKEA at exit 4b).

No thread of Île-de-France is complete without a video of the traffic around the Arc de Thriomphe:

In Denmark we had the same rules earlier, but today those in the roundabout have the rights and those entering must wait before entering the roundabout.

A way better system, than seen on the video, which is chaotic.

That's because this is a traffic circle, not a roundabout.

It would take a very complex system if you want to control the Place de Charles de Gaulle with traffic lights. I don't think it would be more efficient than the current situation. I assume it would help somewhat if they actually painted road markings. In Spain most of these traffic circles have road markings.

I think it would be even worse, because no one would follow them, but some people would rely on others assuming they will follow them, so it would be even more dangerous. If you followed road markings, you'd need to make several circles to get from the innermost lane to the outermost one safely according to rules.

Of course, it exists.
Roundabout and traffic circle don't have the same traffic rule.
