That always happens! You know that sort of open palm but pointing at the same time (or flashing the lights). Then eventually someone goes with an open palm pointing upwards to thank the other person. (Also in a normal junction, when someone gives up their priority, the person pulling out does the open palm thing, then once in front of the other car puts the hazard lights on for a couple of goes).

The traffic planners in the city of Pori managed to invent a four-way yield, but that was found to be violating the legislation in Finland. Four-way stops are not allowed either. The equal-priority crossings are illegal on the roads having the speed limit of more than 40 km/h unless they are marked by the traffic sign

Why do they build 2x4 or even 2x5-streets for really marginal traffic levels?

Well in a roundabout of that size I'd imagine so, they're not blocking anything.

Here you have the location of that roundabout:
https://www.google.es/maps?ll=40.488...21136&t=h&z=16

Both avenues that converge in that roundabout have relatively high traffic levels (they are not only local roads, but collectors for medium-distance traffic), so it works quite well. Taking into account that the roundabout has actually three lanes because of the parked cars, drivers use all of them depending on their destiny, and almost always one can enter it without stopping to give way.

But I must say that this type of urban planning is definitely not good for pedestrians. And the problem with parked cars is that urban planners designed a lot of 8-lane streets without parking spaces, so the neighbours used the outer ones to park. Eventually, Madrid Council decided to modify the markings and now each carriageway has 3 lanes and 1 parking lane.

Fun fact: This roundabout is, with an inner diameter of 180m, probably the largest urban one in Spain (not considering highway interchanges), and also is where the ugliest building in Madrid is located

Guys, I'm searching for locations (pictures) of roundabouts that enable oversize load to pass through the island using the oposite direction on/off ramps such as this one:

If you know this type somewhere else, please share a link to GM. I'd be very grateful!

A six-leg roundabout south of Nieuw-Vennep, Netherlands. It's built on top of a canal crossing.

That is so perfectly Dutch. And, simplified, it would make a pretty good design for a flag if the Dutch ever get bored with the one they have now.

I wouldn't say every single one, there are times where small country lanes meet and there aren't any signs or road marks but meeting someone there isn't very likely, if people meet they just figure it out, people tend to let people out when they don't have to anyway.
