Bang!



Our road trip home yesterday started with a bang. After missing our exit I did not yield at an unfamiliar interstate off-ramp from a highway that ended in a very confusing roundabout. A sizable ticket fine with future  car repair. Door difficult to open but driveable so soldiered on and  got home four hours later. The black car belongs to a sweet old lady who hit me broadside. The two very good-looking FEMALE Green Bay police officers handled the situation beautifully!

  13. Dang! Too bad! Well, the best mantra in cases like this is "no one was hurt." In some area accidents in round-abouts are no fault because they're so darned confusing to non locals.
    (One of the first round-abouts I ever encountered was in Ireland where the road directions are reversed from ours. If you want confusing consider driving into one of those where lanes are the wrong way.)
