The current issue of Time includes an interesting article on the growing popularity of traffic roundabouts in the United States. The magazine reports this fascinating factoid: “France has about 30,000 roundabouts, nearly a third of the world’s total.”

The most famous roundabout in Paris is the Place de l’Étoile (or Place Charles de Gaulle), which circles the Arc de Triomphe (above). The 101-year-old Étoile, which means “Star,” is an intersection of 12 avenues and was the world’s first roundabout.
