+1 There's several single lane roundabouts that don't have a high volume of traffic and they're easy to negotiate as long as you don't have an idiot in a hurry trying to get around you. There's a multi-lane roundabout that spills onto Clearwater beach that always gets me puckered up. Vehicles are easily distracted and some not from the area are like a deer in the headlights trying to figure out which way to go. I stay on the outside lane and try to get around and out as quickly as possible. There's no way to avoid it unfortunately.
