Orange Donut?

 

When I use my 265WT and I'm driving along the Allen XPY In Toronto. I notice on my map that thier is an orange ring on the landscape. I've seen it other places, what is it? what does it want? Anyone know?

From my experience, orange donuts go great with a dark roast coffee, but on GPS displays they usually mark scenes of traffic anarchy known as roudabouts or traffic circles.

I'm assuming that you are not seeing one of the special traffic condition indicators that are broadcast to your nuvi. Correct?

See them here with one of my screenshots

The traffic construction is orange and at a 3D angle might look somewhat like an orange circle.

No I think the first post had it correct

I think it's just a round about. I've been on the same road several times and it is always marked in the same spot. smile

Donuts vs Roundabouts

Donuts = GOOD

Roundabouts = BAD (I freaking hate them.)

It's a Black Hole

Is it black in the middle? Black with an orange circle around it indicates the presence of a Black Hole... Exercise extreme caution and avoid driving near it at all costs, as the immense gravity will pull your vehicle in.

Just kidding. You are correct. The one to which you refer sounds like a traffic circle called Elm Ridge Circle, east of Allen Road, north of Eglinton Ave.

Morning driving through the sound and in and out the valley...

I think roundabouts are great, but the biggest problem with them is that a lot of people don't know how to drive through them. If everyone did what they were supposed to (yeah, that's a good one, eh?) then we could all benefit by not having to wait at traffic lights when no one is around.

Plus, each roundabout means one less red-light camera to keep track of in the database. razz

Yes, those round abouts are tricky. Why I've heard of a fellow named Charlie who accidently drove his car onto the track of the Boston MTA and kept on riding around following the tracks. Even today his fate is still unlearn'd. He may ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston He's the man who never returned. wink
