Around the Way Girl
It's a roundabout, not rocket science. Let's all take a minute, stop painting our cars glittery green, and do some good old fashioned learning. Oh- and you in the leased Escalade rollin' on dubs...I'm talking to you too. I have faith that you can get it.
Notice, there are no stop signs, only yield signs. That's the entire point of a roundabout...keep people moving. Roundabout, not stop about, and certainly not stop at each street. Check to your left and if no one is coming, get in there. This might mean you need to re-adjust the gun rack in the back window of your truck, but that's okay. Safety first. And contrary to popular belief, Palmdale is not some third world country where whoever honks first gets the right of way. This is America. Land of the Free. Home of the Brave. We have rules and laws. Your mother wasn't lying, they are for your own good.
Then, when you get to your desired destination, simply break away to the right and move it along. Not hard. I know you can do it.
Here is a picture tutorial for those who are literacy challenged. Follow the red (or blue) arrow. I know that most things in this town are built on the grid system, so this newfandangled curvy business is new to most of us, but don't fight progress.
Come on, P-dale...you are my people. I believe in you. Let's show the world that we are not as backwards as they think we are. We can handle a roundabout. Oh-Yes, we can!
That is all.
