ya, i still do not like them. well, at least the big ones. i'm too much of a polite driver and i end up yielding to everybody and nobody yields for me
and besides, i think the rule is.... always yield to the person on your right, so you are yielding once your inside the circle.
besides, right now i'm imaging my mother in law stuck in the center lane of a traffic circle going around and around and around and wondering how she is going to get to the outer lane.
actually, in my neighbourhood in N Burnaby, traffic circles have been installed in about 1/5 of the intersections. many drivers just wizz through them without looking. i ask ICBC why and they said that the purpose of a traffic circle is to have some confusion therefore drivers slow down and if there is an accident, the accident is from the back corner of the car rather than a T-Bone.
