I really understand your point, but the right solution is torture and death penalty for those antisocial elements who don't indicate when going out...

I understand your argument but in terms of practicle, day to day use, signaling works on most roundabouts.
Of course you have those huge roundabouts in southern Europe where you only indicate upon exiting. It's the difference between a standard roundabout, which is basically just a round intersection or a large roundabout which is a street circuit in itsself.

No, at that point they'd be in doubt of what you are going to do and will stop at the intersection (or at least slow down enough to stop if needed). You're forgetting that the system also requires people to use the right indicator to say they're exiting the roundabout. Nobody here has said anything about never using any indicators when going "straight" around a roundabout (if someone did mean to say that, that person has no clue about using roundabouts).

Admittedly, using the left indicator while on the roundabout is redundant, but it does act as a confirmation that the person *is* going to drive further on the roundabout. I disapprove of putting on the left indicator when you're not yet on the roundabout though, that just looks as if you're going to use the roundabout in the wrong direction.

I have no problem with these circular-type roads

However, in places with extremely severe traffic congestion and badly-disciplined drivers, these circular roads can be a nightmare:

The problem with turbo-roundabouts is that sometimes it's difficult to make a U-turn:



What should be done? Green or blue?

None of them, I'd say. In that design, U-turn is simply not allowed

If absolutely needed, I'd choose green, to be sure I have no one on my left.


And that would be the only time I'd use the left indicator in the middle of a roundabout

they aren't supposed to allow a U-turn, and you shouldn't do it, it would be against the rules... however, this one actually allows U-turns in 2 of 3 streets...

But, a standard turbo-roundabout isn't supposed to allow U-turns...

Where is that roundabout located?
Gmaps link please?

And I realize that it might not be visible on GMaps itself yet.

That's true, although I don't see why not.

Simple: because that would make the turboroundabout in current form impossible.

Actually you can make a U-turn without violating any rule here, but only if you enter the roundabout from the "top" or the "bottom" side of the picture, which is supposed to be the main street.

Well, yeah... true... although their priority is not to "care" about U-turn... their purpose of existence is to make the traffic flow faster and more (pre-) organized, choosing your lane (and then direction of movement) before you enter the roundabout...

But any other U-turn would be "against the rules"...

No, I meant why you mustn't turn left.

How to avoid a pylon, just build a roundabout around it.

This is the street Nordhøj in Køge, Denmark.

That's clever... It's a new roundabout, right? Cause I can't find it on Google Maps/Earth...
