...that automobiles inside the traffic circle have the right of way?

Hell yeah, when I am in the cricle I do whatever I want, you can hit any car trying to get inside and fix yours on his insurance:D

Ooops...guess this wanna-be didn't know that either. I thought it was the person exiting who had right of way? Ooops...

Mohanned, with my luck, the guy wouldn't have insurance or would just drive off before he could be stopped.

Kinzi, exactly. If you're exiting, then you're already inside the circle, which means you have the right of way.

Do these traffic circles have marked lanes for each car to maintain their position while moving around the circle? And Do Drivers in Jordan know to anticipate exiting the circle so they gradually move to the outer "rings" or do they just go from the inner-most ring to the exit cutting off all other cars in their path? I swear the driving there is a free for all and I am sorry to say that I add to the chaos. I feel so bad for those who have expensive cars, they must drive white-knuckled and shaking!!

I asked a taxi driver the same question as he zoomed into the circle. his answer was:

"tsik, el awlawieh lalli bidafish"

When I first moved to Jordan, one of my friends told me, "Dave, let me teach you how to drive in Jordan. You just close your eyes...and go."

Well i guess that all of them know that since its included in the book you have to study for getting your license , but unfortunatelly since some get it using the wasta ,well i guess you know what i want to say here .
also i think that everybody thinks that he/she has the priority or all the rights .
driving in jordan is not fun , when i was learning how to drive they were not respecting the fact that im still learning and they were too close to the car from behind , i was always thinking what if i break suddenly , what would that stupid driver behind me do do , finally i dropped out and decided to keep on using the yellow army .
