Steve's complaint wasn't about roundabouts which are designed
to ease traffic flow, it was about roundabouts which are
designed the *impede* traffic flow.  Unlike the ones in Europe
or some east coast (US) cities, these are tiny (no larger than
a regular 4-way-stop intersection) and poorly designed.

The roundabouts I was complaining about aren't much better.
How in the heck are you supposed to enter the roundabout,
get into the inside lane, get back into the outside lane,
and exit all in 50 feet?
