I just watched this last night. I had my bet on the roundabout. It just seems to make good sense.

For as long as drivers respect the flow of traffic then roundabouts always seem to work best, when I used to ride my V-Max 1100 I hated crossroads, death waiting to happen for Bikers, roundabouts were always safer to negotiate I found.

Another aspect to efficiency is that the roundabout cars do not come to a complete stop. This has to be slightly better for fuel economy, brake life, etc.

I still don't understand how they work.
If I am at 6 on a clock and want to go to 9, how do I get in the lane closest to the center?
My natural reaction is to stay on the outer lane and not use the inner lane.
Is there an unwritten rule of etiquette that prevents accidents?

If it's a standard two lane road, then there is no inner or outer lane in the roundabout. You just don't hit the guy in front of you and yield to those already inside the roundabout.

If it's a multi- lane roundabout, you're forced out of the roundabout if you are in the exit lane (if you follow the lines it takes you out of the roundabout). In other words, you would have to change lanes to stay in. So, to turn at the 9O'Clock, you get into the innermost lane (left lane in America), and by the time you reach the 9 o'clock, you're in the exit lane. If you were in the rightmost lane, you would be forced to exit at the 3, or 12.

Also, if you're in the roundabout, you have the right of way...the cars entering have to yield, so you can always migrate towards the outside when necessary.
