I can't say for sure, maybe these are round abouts or traffic circles? I 
think those are where cars go around until they can turn on to the street 
they want. Maybe they're something completely different. The website 
http://www.openstreetmap.org has wiki entries for all these point tags that 
can show up. There are around 1200 of these tags and I couldn't begin to 
tell you the definition of some of them. Loadstone includes these for 
completeness assuming someone, somewhere, knows what they are.

TSK TSK TSK.Now that I’ve done that and am exploring my neighborhood, I see on East Central Avenue, a prime artery in our town, things called turning circles. I’ve always associated them with dead end streets: but East Central has none of these. Could be a dead end sidestreet, of which there  are many: but there is no indication of an intersection.
