The colour is one of the things that I like about it the most.

I am a big fan of the individual colours. Especially on the older cars 8)

For the right car I would adapt! Left turns would be dangerous but that's a good excuse to make 3 more rights instead :)

Sold to the gentleman in Canada then :wink:

One thing I did notice whilst on my visit to Vancouver was the distinct lack of roundabouts. In fact the only one that I found was out-front of the UBC :?

Very few roundabouts here. They put one in near the local shopping mall and handed out flyers explaining what it was and how to navigate it. :lol:

Even after all these years it still bothers me when negotiating that one.

I just shut my eyes and go. But as you know, I do that for most things these days :lol:

I was lucky/unlucky enough to be in Hemel when it was first used.
The confusion was hilarious, drivers were getting out of their cars and scratching their heads, amazingly everyone managed to avoid each other.
One of the funniest things I have ever seen :lol:
