Nice capture Linda... brings back those special memories as a child.
In Canada its also called a "Merry Go Round"
Round abouts as I know them are circles with exits/entrances in driving.
The UK & even here in Muscat are famous for their crazy accidents to happen..."round abouts". Good news here in Oman is that they have been steadily changing them to proper street lights & signals. About bloody time too, would save alot more lives... especially here. Death rates from auto accidents are the highest in the world here & thats no joke.
