Now, we all know that driving doesn't come naturally to some...


And the road can be a pretty chaotic place.

But here in America, driving is usually a breeze...


And that's thanks to our never-ending highways and long, straight roads.

But in Kentucky, things have changed...

Because the state has just welcomed it's first-ever mini roundabout.

Now, roundabouts are somewhat of a rarity here in the United States...


With them being much more common across Europe and in the United Kingdom where roads tend to be a lot more flexible.

So, the arrival of a roundabout in the middle of a junction in Rowan County, Kentucky, came as quite a shock to locals this month...


And many had absolutely no idea how to navigate it!

So much so...

That recent ariel footage of the roundabout has shown drivers descending into utter chaos as they try to make their way around the new - and much more circular - junction.

People have been left both terrified and irritated over the turbulent footage...


And it's clear that locals are not impressed with the new addition to their roads.

In the footage, uploaded to Facebook by Walker Construction, cars can be seen tentatively approaching the roundabout...​

And, more than often, taking the completely wrong exits or turns.

It's clear that drivers have no idea which exit to take...

And a long row of cars are seen to just follow one another and take the closest exit possible.

Some cars even come to a complete halt at their exits, clearly trying to navigate the alien junction before them.

This roundabout is the first to be installed in north-eastern Kentucky, and it seems like it could be the last, given how it has worked out.

A local called Jason Whisman told news outlet WYKT, "It's going to throw them for a loop. A complete 360. No doubt about it."

Walker Construction has explained that they only shared the video in the hope of educating people how not to use a roundabout...

And in the caption of the video, a list of basic roundabout instructions and rules were displayed for future drivers.

Which we would strongly advise in doing so if you're going to be encountering this roundabout any time soon!
