Pontiac of the Month

of the Month

  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

In Europe, things are reversed, and the roundabout is much more common than four-way-stop intersections. While it has been said before that the roundabout is a more efficient way to handle traffic at a busy intersection, <em>Mythbusters</em> aims to find out the truth.<br /><br />We'll be the first to admit that roundabouts can be confusing to us Americans, but the <em>Mythbusters</em> crew thinks that could be a result of little familiarity with the traffic tool in the US. We were super curious to see the results of this test, and this writer admits to being on the wrong side of the fence when it came to guessing which intersection was more efficient.<br /><br />So, which method is the most efficient? You'll have to watch the <a href="/2013/10/07/mythbusters-four-way-stop-roundabout-video-poll/#continued">video below</a> to find out. And regardless of the video's outcome, let us know which system you think is best in the poll below.<br /><br /><br /><p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/07/mythbusters-four-way-stop-roundabout-video-poll/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/07/mythbusters-four-way-stop-roundabout-video-poll/#poll84983'>/2013/10/07/mythbusters-four-way-stop-roundabout-video-poll/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/07/mythbusters-four-way-stop-roundabout-video-poll/#poll84983">View Poll</a></p><p><a /2013/10/07/mythbusters-four-way-stop-roundabout-video-poll/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/07/mythbusters-four-way-stop-roundabout-video-poll/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading <em>Mythbusters tests which is more efficient, four-way stop or roundabout [w/poll]</em></a></p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a /2013/10/07/mythbusters-four-way-stop-roundabout-video-poll/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/10/07/mythbusters-four-way-stop-roundabout-video-poll/">Mythbusters tests which is more efficient, four-way stop or roundabout [w/poll]</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Mon, 07 Oct 2013 20:01:00 EST.

Yes but round about makes a good test coarse for suspension mods.
