Rotary driving 101. You yield to traffic in the rotary,then proceed to enter when safe to do so. You do not come to abrupt stops in the rotary for no apparent reason,you will get ass ended.While in the rotary, you have the right of way over cars that have not yet entered.Cars approaching the rotary must yield to you.Simple as that.
No need to complicate it.

stop sign

Is that why I almost got smashed into when driving into it going north. There should be stop signs before you enter. Nobody is yielding to anyone. If you don't come to a complete stop before entering you will be hit. It's to small it's stupi and it never should have been built in the first place. Pedestrians inside it have the right of way but will be run over anyway. people do not know how to drive on straight roads in Utica. It's like trying to tell drivers not to use there cell phones while driving. Not going to happen ever.

Pedestrians inside it DO NOT have the right of way! Notice how the crosswalks avoid the actual circle? And for the millionth time, IT'S NOT TOO SMALL! I drive a 26' truck through it everyday.
oxymoron

The round-a-bout is an oxymoron, You have to yield to the right away and if you yeild and a car is coming you must come to abrupt stops. It is so small you do not have time to react when someone puts on there brakes on. It should not have been built. They are taking them out in many cities because of all the accidents they are causing. They have studied and built round-a-bouts over twenty years ago when they thought they would be effective and Roefaro's bright idea was good twenty years ago but thats what Utica gets when you are twenty years behind times. Stupid is what stupid does. Roefaro was not the sharpest tool in the shed. All he knew how to do is spend money that wasn't his and drain taxpayers dry.

Forget the " oxy" your just a moron

I agree. The round-a-bout was thought out by a moron with no idea what hazards were ahead and the upkeep needed that it will now cost taxpayers. Our cars weren't wrecked enough by the city streets and now to add to that our cars face playing bumber cars with cars and pedestrians. It all looked good on paper and is only a scale size of what one should actually accomplish. What a mess this mayor has put us in for years to come but any other council person is just as much as a moron for approving it. What koolaide were they drinking that day? This damn thing is way to small.

I love biff's post because I thought the roundabout was built for driving 101 for Gillotti's driving school. How perfect to bring his class right outside his window for learning what's signs mean and how to use them. What, I think there are about 10 different signs inside that teaching circle. Mileage signs, yield signs, one way signs, keep rights signs, enter at your own risk signs, use caution signs, pedestrian signs, and moron signs all over a just built a train wreck sign and plaque for a twenty your old idea. Ha ha ha. It's a friggin joke. Have we invited the govenor or senetors to come take a bus tour yet. Stop at the head shop and get your self a new pipe to smoke whatever your smoking.

"Bumper cars"? Has there yet been an accident? If you're getting into accidents in the roundabout, you probably shouldn't have a driver's license. People in this city need to cut the shit with the complaining. Get a friggin' LIFE.
well thought out

#14 Mar 13, 2012
There have been several incidents in there already including cars and pedestrians. I hope the plaque there has room to put an accident count of cars and pedestrians. The count will go up as fast as the national deficit. You must have been one of the planners that built a roundabout in the middle of a drug infested, prostitution ring in the middle of a demoralized part of town.

Everyone: when you're in the roundabout sing "round, round, get around, I get around." "you spin me right round baby right round" at the top of your lungs. it's a fun feeling.
