    Aruba's Christmas decorations at the rotaries/roundabouts

    be careful as you make you way around these roundabouts as their "Christmas beauty" is somewhat of a driving distraction

    That looks so cool! Agree with the distraction part, but still pretty cool

    Ha, ha-- Seen on Facebook-- the musings of someone commenting on the extra traffic generated by families driving round and round and round in the roundabouts so the kids can take in the decorations.

    yes, i was going to copy and paste that here, but i figured that might not be appropriate.

    about 10-15 yrs ago, clearwater beach in fl, had a huge roundabout/rotary at the end of rte 60 (gulf to bay blvd) and intersecting with gulf blvd. they constructed a large roundabout and put in a giant fountain in the mddle. the fountain was a huge distraction and the water spilled over and splashed onto the roadway. it was an ugly nightmare.

    i bet the aruba roundabouts are pretty.
    i bet the traffic it creates is not.

    when i first read about the roundabouts being decorated i thought of clearwater beach's issues with driver distraction.
