"The Magic Roundabout

Writing about web page http://www.swindonweb.com/life/lifemagi0.htm

No, not the kids program, or recent film, but today I had the misfortune to be driving through Swindon and came across this:

Magic Roundabout

What the hell?!

Took me by surprise, I can tell you! Apparently it's been around for 32 years and has seen over 14 serious accidents… and 80 "lesser accidents" whatever that means. There's whole websites dedicated to it… a bit of warning before you're on top of the bloody thing would have been nice though.

The funniest thing (!) was that as well as trying to work out what I was supposed to be doing I also had to dodge two cyclists who were just riding diagonally across the whole thing and ignoring any bit of white paint on the road that they could.
