Joker: Roundabout Drivers

It's not the roundabout that are annoying, comments Joker, it's the drivers using the roundabouts. I have broken down the types of roundabout drivers that cause frustration.

  • 1. The IHOPers. Generally these are senior citizens who are petrified by the roundabout and they creep ever so slowly into the roundabout and you not sure if they're going to make it.
  • 2. Monster Truck Mayhem. These are guys who are itching to run over somebody. They actually accelerate in the roundabout, hoping you'll cut in front of them.
  • 3. The Andrettis. These are people who view the around about as an Indy race and whip all the way around the roundabout for the fun of it.
  • 4. Student drivers. These are people who equally dangerous because they seem so unsure of themselves as they go through the roundabout. Some are prone to stopping mid round and backing up.
  • 5. Praying. The majority of drivers who are praying the oncoming car/truck doesn't smash into them.

Question: Can you add to this list?
