    I'll bet the "touch-down" was not as smooth as the "lift-off" was! Something tells me alcohol was involved!

    Odd roundabouts are considered dangerous.Roundabouts like roads are not dangerous in the slightest its only the halfwits that use /misuse them that are the danger

    No but their design and placement can be hazardous to enter or exit. Constructing a round about at an intersection of 4 5 or 6 streets all terminating at the same place with one or 2 of them having multiple lanes of traffic is just plain lubricous
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Seems like the 27 yo woman was pissed and was charged for driving under the influence.Think that answers the question about "dangerous road hazards"

    You don't, and I don't, but...


    I'd say evidence indicates we're not the only folks with an opinion on this subject. I just hope they were able to find the culprit and get it to pay for the damage. IMO, not bright enough to be a real person, therefore my chosen pronoun.
