Carmel, Indiana Roundabouts on CNN

As a Brit living in Carmel I am familiar with roundabouts as they are very common in the UK and the ability to navigate around one if part of the British driving test. I do find it amusing when I see locals trying to navigate around the roundabouts here. Last winter we saw tire tracks straight across the middle of a roundabout on Rangeline. It was as if someone was driving along and thought "I'm going to make this one a roundover!"
