There is no lead in petrol anymore so no drama with exhaust fumes. Truly entrepreneurial poor people will set up roadside stalls to sell the produce to the better off navigating the roundabouts.

    I'm not seeing a downside here.

    I don't see a problem with vegetation - there are plenty of these intersections in different countries. If you're a little more careful, there won't be any accidents.

    I agree, you don't need to see signs or anything to do that...

    Maybe they DO ... some people drive into parked cars.

    Perhaps they could also explain why some city councils persist with the habit of planting out large roundabouts with bushy plants, so that you can't easily see what vehicles are sitting opposite, or are coming around the roundabout to meet you.
    Cause decisions are made by people who can't "drive" and only steer.
