    Upon review this morning, in addition to Clam’s and Jombl’s observations, what makes this an awkward roundabout is that a couple entry points have stop signs, the Crescent entries do have Yield signs but no dashed line on the pavement. What really becomes problematic in the morning “rush” is the walkway on the west end...stopping for the pedestrians stops cars within the roundabout, thereby eliminating its intended flow. And then yes, you have people like Bry dropping off in the circle

    Sounds like a pedestrian tunnel is needed

    I don't do the drop off, but I do accelerate the 3.0 Turbo Quattro to around 52 mph and blast through it like Nicki Lauda. Still trying to get the right line to get over 60.

    I have lost 42 pounds since Oct. 17th, 2018. I will be releasing a new diet book explaining how on Amazon for $6.99 for your Kindle soon.

    Note to GEPD, I am kidding of course. I follow all posted speed limits. Unlike the supercar that drives at 2 am every so often on the north side going up and down side streets at incredible speeds.

    The the shortest distance between two points is a straight line...

    2 days ago, I saw 2 GEPD EMT's pushing a dead body on a gurney (The blue body bag was completely sealed, so I am going with dead) across an apartment parking lot on Briar St. south of Surrey. Anyone know what happened?

    I don't know if you've seen the show that clip is from, but I can't hear the word "Quattro" and not have Philip Glenister's character come to mind.

    The character first appeared on "Life on Mars" which is now streaming on Amazon's Britbox, and perhaps elsewhere. Brilliant series, it blew me away with it's originality. Try an episode, if you're not hooked I'd be shocked. If you can, watch it first without researching it and let it surprise you. I will tell you that music is a massively important part of the show (Link Here).

    The Quattro doesn't appear until the sequel series, "Ashes to Ashes". I think the first series has maybe a dozen episodes, the sequel a bit more.
