The US-67 @ IH-20 interchange in Dallas has sort of a zero-choice interchange: If you're not already on the highway, attempting to get on the highway will take you beyond the interchange. It's a mess. 108.162.221.153 05:38, 14 December 2014 (UTC)

That's not a bug, it's a feature! On-ramps within a mile or so of a major junction are the main cause for a lot of junction backups, as the paths of people limited to one lane (and slowing down) intersect with those trying to pass through and merge into 60+mph traffic. 108.162.221.87 12:04, 27 May 2016 (UTC)

From a European point of view, Boston does have a rather uniform street grid, it's not comparable to the traffic difficulties you'll get in major European cities like London, Paris, Rome, Berlin or Brussels. For many of those cities, the inner town just has to be avoided in a car. --173.245.49.136 23:56, 10 January 2015 (UTC)

what? oh yeah - the driving on the wrong side of the road thing - that would get confusing... but seriously, it's... interesting from what I can tell by Google Maps' representation of it - assuming I could discount the side of the road I'm on, and if I get a good look at the map before going out, I don't think it looks that bad.

It's not driving on the OTHER side of the road that's the issue, it just a sort of running joke with many non-Canberran Australians visiting Canberra and complaining about the (relatively large) number of roundabouts in the city. Even Parliament House is built on a massive roundabout.-Pennpenn 108.162.250.155 03:26, 30 March 2015 (UTC)

The Supercollider has a stylized "S" inscribed in a circle, as if a logo. Mountain Hikes (talk) 13:58, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
