A circle for the really confused ... or drunk
Or a native North Carolinian. NC-DOT start using traffic circles in some locations as "traffic calming devices", and by the outcry, you would think they had outlawed pork products.

I'm pretty certain we drove through that thing many years ago. Went into it, got dizzy, and were spit out with a "what the heck just happened?!" Amazingly we got out in the direction we should.

Interesting that someone came up with a roundabout a) going the wrong way and b) where traffic already in the circle have to yield to traffic coming in. Very backward indeed.

But yes, that circle is very much FF - and rather confusing.

So, I'm resisting the temptation to take advantage of the low prices and buy a 2nd k-3 because all the deals seem to include a lens I don't want.


You can always sell that lens.

I'm about to whip up a batch of candied bacon.

Obviously, the traffic engineers involved did their studies in France ... somewhere near Lille. That is obvious ...
