All About Roundabouts Society

Cutting Corners Since 2017

Welcome to nomorecorners.wordpress.com, a site All About Roundabouts! We celebrate roundabouts (and traffic circles and rotaries and…well…you get the point) from every corner of the world.

IMG_0472The All About Roundabouts Society inducts seven roundabouts from around the world each year into the Ring of Honor.  We also recognize those circles which let vehicles and pedestrians more safely coexist with the Sir Geoffrey Jellicoe “Motopia” Award.  Finally, we honor those individuals who played significant roles in roundabout history with the Ring Leaders Hall of Fame.

But the Secret sits in the middle and knows.”
