We did decide on this list that for us, in Au, we'd stick with Brent's
definition, that if the roundabout fitted within the width of the road, it

I can't imagine any Austrylyan driver paying any attention to a painted circle
on the road pretending to be a roundabout - they only see concrete barriers.
