    SD,

    We can always rely upon you for key information.

    Ellie,

    Absolutely.

    Elie,

    I don’t like traffic circles much either.

    Boy was I confused by those things when I first moved here! I still remember my wife, a born Jersey girl, patiently explaining “yes, you need to be on the right to make a left“! Now I’m used to the jughandles, but still chuckle when I see out-of-state drivers looking bewildered.

    I do prefer them to traffic circles though. Circles are an accident waiting to happen.

    Whew! Makes me happy I only live in the “implied crosswalk” state…. 😉

    NJ has been getting rid of its traffic circles (and Maryland’s started using them). I also believe that jughandles are getting phased out.

    However, not all jughandles are bad. (But some are very bad.)

    They are exceptionally irritating.

    I HATE jughandles! I go up to NJ a lot and they never fail to make me crazy!
