JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- It's a traffic problem Paula Ford just can't take anymore. 

"I've almost been hit head on now about four times," she explained.

More specifically, her problem is with other drivers in the new roundabouts on Clark Road on the Northside.

"People don't know how to navigate through them properly. A lady coming up from that boulevard, instead of going around the roundabout, she turned into my lane of traffic and missed me by a smidge, I mean just by a hair," Ford said.

It didn't take our First Coast News cameras too long to find people doing exactly what Ford is explaining.

"There are yield signs for people who are merging in the roundabout," she said.

We also saw people ignoring those signs, and others reacting by honking their horns.

"It's just really, really dangerous," Ford said.

According to the Florida Roundabout Guide, before you enter the roundabout, you have to yield to the cars already driving in the circle. There are also one-way and yield signs that clearly show the flow of traffic at these Northside roundabouts.
