Close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and let your mind go blank. 

Now picture, if you will, a group of motorists navigating traffic, only their cars are not powered by gas, solar power or electricity. 

Nope, the only way to get around in these vehicles is by extending your feet through the floorboard and skipping your toes across the pavement, a la the "Flintstones." 

What I'm talking about is a two-minute roundabout training video produced by the Wisconsin Department of Transportation that features actors walking around in a circle with what appears to be cardboard automobiles hanging over their shoulders with straps. 

And it cost taxpayers $30,000, according to DOT spokesman Steven Olson.
