    PHOTOS OF ROUNDABOUTS IN FRANCE

    Thanks to Bernard Guichet for a fabulous, day-long tour of roundabouts in the Nantes, France district while I (Dr. Eugene Russell) was in France for the the International Road Federation World road congress. Bernard was a really great host. He is one of the top experts in France, and the world, on modern roundabouts. If there are any mistakes in the comments I associated with any of the French pictures, they are mine alone. If anyone has any specific questions I am sure Bernard would answer them by email:
