Circles and Roundabouts: Whilst these are standard in many European countries and in the UK and Ireland, they are new to many US drivers. These circles serve as a kind of perpetual-motion intersection, keeping traffic flowing without the use of signal lights. This sounds more difficult than it actually is, and roundabouts are actually kind of fun once you get used to them. Priority is given to the one driving on the roundabout unless there is a STOP sign at the entrance.

Cell Phone Usage It is now illegal to use your cell phone whilst driving. Violators can be stopped and issued a fine.
