If you can't negotiate a simple traffic circle w/ out hitting things, maybe you should get a refund from the truck driving school you went to Roadbaron... It is idiots like you that give truck drivers a bad name. With luck, people who do not have adequate driving skills will stay away from Blue Earth. I am planning on spending time near the intersections w/ an umbrella and funny colored drinks to watch the comedy show after the traffic circles are in.

I was fortunate enough to take a semi through an intersection in one of these European wonders they were building out in Colorado once. The construction crew kind of laughed when I told them they needed to move some cones/barrels for me to make the swing. So I showed them. A half mile later when their truck caught up with me they unloaded all of their stuff I took with me. lol. See is believing. If these idiotic things are the same size as the ones up in Hutchinson I hope the fine tax payers of Blue Earth are ready to buy A LOT of concrete. Trucks (semi's) aren't given enough room and are always up on the curb's. On both sides, just to make it around these bits of brilliance. But maintenance is free right? I can't wait to see people who have never seen one of these things work take a whirl around them. A 4 way intersection is confusing to people. Now what are they going to do?
