Actually it does exist in France doesn't it(i.e th Arc de Triomphe)? I've never seen a roundabout with no give way signs or traffic lights in person though

Duh! Of course. The City of Paris covers 87 km², whereas New York City covers 789 km². So it's apples and oranges.

The City of London covers about 2.5 square kilometers. It probably makes more sense to measure urban areas than political areas.

The City of London is pretty irrelevant to today, and is only there for historical reasons, and legal "London" is Greater London, not the City

Read the whole thread for context, please, before throwing "duh"s around.

yeah, I'm still a bit lost in this kind of roundabouts. luckily most of them have traffic lights, and they are, normally, full of cars, so I just follow the others.

I think local/regional threads are fine, if there's a great deal of interest in a City's, Regional, or Provincial/State/County routes. If it gets TOO politically and/or nasty, the thread gets locked, either till tempers calm down, or if required, permanently.

it's not that bad. It functions with the 'zipper system' (?) everywhere.



You just have to watch both of your mirrors and you're fine.

Going back to Penn's Woods' statement that New York is 4 times more populated than Paris based on administrative limits (apples and oranges), I've finally completed a little comparison that is more apples and apples (or oranges and oranges).

I've compared New York City (excluding Staten Island, which is very different from the rest of NYC in term or urbanism, density, etc.) with the same area in Paris (same land area), and looked at the population of both. Here is the result (maps are exactly at the same scale, despite what your eyes may tell you).

Staten Island covers 151.5 km², whereas the Bois de Boulogne and Vincennes cover only 18.4 km² together. Moreover, Staten Island is really quite separated from the rest of NYC. Staten Island is 25 km from Midtown Manhattan, whereas the Bois de Boulogne and Bois de Vincennes are both only 7 km from Châtelet-Les Halles.

It depends on the definition, but if you take the exits to the last suburbs, and include the Voie Expresses, it's approximately 700 kilometers worth of motorway(like) roads.
