WARNING: These 5 Roads Are The Most Dangerous in Minnesota

I just finished teaching my youngest all about driving and some of the best lessons he learned were from all of you showing that true Minnesota Nice spirit...waving people at a 4-way stop and letting them go first.  He's even had a few interesting hand motions thrown his way as he was in the first few days of driving.  BTW, thanks for pulling in front of him, slamming on the brakes, and almost causing an accident.  

Speaking of accidents, there are a few roads that were just labeled as the most dangerous in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.

I always write my real feelings and I won't sugarcoat it in the case of roundabouts either.  I actually frown when I see that others don't know how to USE a roundabout properly.  I know it can look scary but it really is just a bunch of people merging together to make a happy circle family.  Well, until that one person doesn't actually go.

There are quite a few rules that are ticket-worthy for roundabouts.  If it has been a bit since you've looked at the rules put out by the Minnesota Department of Transportation, click below to see how many you knew were even a thing.
