West Orange county has a Whole Bunch of roundabouts. Most have decorations in the middle so you cannot see the other side.

Your lucky guys Uk has roundabouts everywhere drives you nuts ,big ones have traffic lights to enter and sometimes 2 or 3 sets when circulating and another set to exit onto your route , madness .

Here in New Jersey we call them traffic circles, not roundabouts. I read that they were invented in NJ. We have no trouble with them.


NJ also has (or use too, haven't been in NJ in 40 years) Jug Handles. Probably work well if you know about them but a pain when you don't and then you get use to them and the next corner doesn't have one.

A man sold everything and, gave up his home and lost his wife, to own a Duesenberg. It was rumored he died alone and homeless. Still after losing all he requested to be buried in the car. A charitable piper recalls the story:

As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper’s cemetery in the Kentucky back country.

As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn’t stop for directions.

I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.
I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn’t know what else to do, so I started to play.

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I’ve never played before for this homeless man.

And as I played Amazing Grace, the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, “I never seen nothin’ like that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for twenty years.”
