Driver cruises through middle of Macon's new roundabout

There's a right way to drive around a roundabout. And then there's what a driver did in Macon's College Hill Corridor over the weekend.

The new roundabout that opened Friday to much fanfare at College and Oglethorpe streets already has a set of tire tracks running clear through it.

On Friday, the new roadway helped ease traffic congestion near Alexander II elementary school and parents and residents were pleased with the new set up.

Someone was apparently confused with the new roadway over the weekend.

A modern roundabout is a circular intersection where traffic flows count-clockwise around a center island. It can be an alternative to traffic signals and stop signs to control traffic.

For more information on roundabouts and instructions on how to navigate, here's some information from the Georgia Department of Transportation.
