How are these acceptable in Portland, Oregon? Roundabouts represent true democracy. Portland is having none of that! Lake Oswego, keep your roundabouts. In Portland, we let that one meek guy on the right in, we let him in because he has a right to get in the roundabout as much as the twenty other people efficiently cruising through, easing congestion. No. WE stop, in the roundabout to let that one confused driver on the side street into this mess we call Portland. Let them in people.
