Swindon, England's Magic Roundabout Is Seven Traffic Circles In One
Traffic circles cut the risk of getting into a serious accident by about 30%, but one with the nickname "Traffic Circle of Hell" doesn't sound like a great time. But the Swindon, England roundabout that has earned this nickname is actually quite functional. The Magic Swindon Roundabout is made up of seven smaller traffic circles. Although intimidating, this roundabout system has been working for more than 60 years.
The Magic Roundabout is special in that cars can travel around its many circles in both directions, and drivers can exit through the other side of the circle without having to go around the outer edge of one large circle. This roundabout also offers multiple ways to get to a single destination — just pick the route with the least amount of traffic. Watch the video below to see how traffic moves around this massive roundabout.
