well, the handful of roundabouts im thinking about are 12-20 meters across.
so that would be a draw in a way for the roundabout by hand and link in the
connecting ways then ... right?

there are a couple of little roundabouts in the burbs, but they are about
3 meters across + 2 times the single lane width. so i should mark them up as
mini roundabouts ... right?
