I love roundabouts. There are few experiences as satisfying as being part of a flow of traffic around a working roundabout. When everything just works and cars move when and where they should, it is bliss.
I get really annoyed when people get roundabouts wrong - especially when they don't move when they should, as happened this afternoon. Roundabouts are brilliantly designed, but sadly often ruined by drivers who can't grasp the simple rule: give way to the right. That means if there's something coming from your right, stop. Otherwise go! It's not hard.
