So now here is the next part of our conversation ..... which is worse .... I find the jughandles slow to get through, but the circles more of a pain ... so my vote the circle!
The "Jug Handle"
Here's an example of the jughandle at Route 37 and Hooper ave in Toms River
The "Traffic Circle"
Here's the circle in Manchester ... Route 37 and Route 70
So time to vote which do you hate more the "jughandle" or the "circle" ?
