Magically simple

David Pescovitz at BoingBoing has discovered the Magic Roundabout in Swindon:

While it’s frequently criticized as one of the scariest junctions in the region, the Magic Roundabout is apparently a fantastically efficient design, thought I’d imagine it would take a few turns to get used to it.

I’m not sure who these frequent critics are, but I have driven on this piece of road — many times. It may look complex from above and, descriptions of the junction are often far too involved, but navigating it is easy.

You come to a roundabout, you drive around it and come off at the correct exit. You come to a roundabout, you drive around it and come off at the correct exit. Repeat.
