Roundabout symbols

I recall when the roundabout symbol looked more like a recycling symbol -- chasing arrows. The current roundabout symbol is less artistic, but more clear, once you figure out what it's trying to say.

There's a two-lane roundabout by my place and nobody gets how that works!

Looks like a one-horned, barb-tongued chicken.

Makes me think of a dragon.

I think everyone will eventually understand how to drive around roundabouts -- but it will take time. And a few scuffed bumpers.

I admit, I drive mostly, and as a driver I am familiar with roundabouts. I think it is quite frightening that many drivers don't know what to do when they come upon one. I've nearly been hit a dozen or more times due to these "newly" implemented traffic signs.
