All true and even funnier when living in New Jersey. Down here noone knows how to navigate a rotary. They don't even know what a rotary is. It's called a Traffic Circle here.

 

The rule of; the drivers on the rotary have the right of way does not exist. Here it's the the entering roadway has the right if way. You're good til you hit the next one. Then it's every man for himself. biggrin.gif

I just can't understand the reasoning of the person entering the rotary has the right of way. If the car in the rotary has to stop or slow down then everyone behind them has to do the same which I feel would lead to more congestion....let the cars on the rotary go and they will get out of the way by leaving the rotary then others may enter. And has far as tailgating just pull to the right and let them go.....now they're gone and they aren't bothering you and your not bothering them by blocking them behind you mad.gif. THE PASSING LANE IS FOR PASSING!!!!

Actually I thought the Pike part was right but that it should've been 495 instead of 128...
