Ann Arbor Michigan is probably among the smartest cities in the United States. The major industry - heck, nearly the ONLY industry - is the University of Michigan, one of the largest and best universities in the country.
This particular one is out in the country, but not far from Ann Arbor. As you can see, the locals are having no issues negotiating it.
We went through several roundabouts on our bus ride from the downtown hotel we were staying at to the Hyundai-Kia Technical centre in the town's outskirts. Our driver was a large, very funny and slightly scary woman who one-handed the bus through the roundabouts, her other hand holding on to her coffee mug.
Her comments on other drivers suggested that she had no problems with the roundabouts but perhaps others were still getting used to them. I'm not sure how long they've been here; the construction was clearly not that old.
The Americans are slowly figuring out seat belt use - they're still double-digit percentage points behind us on that count.
The glimmer of national health care is only 50 years behind us.
But it seems that at least in some American jurisdictions, they're ahead of at least some Canadian jurisdictions on roundabouts.
Now that Toronto has a mayor who doesn't actively hate cars - hey; his name is Ford, fer cryin' out loud - is there a chance for Toronto?
