Metering access is a somewhat good idea. But it's a bandaid to the real problem: round-abouts cause smooth, unbroken traffic flow that makes access to streets between them difficult and unsafe.

Sounds good by the statistics, but let's see if it moves the traffic faster and safer....

It's good to try. It works in metro areas for freeway access. Some don't know how to access roundabouts, but when there's traffic its common for many cars to go by access points backing up traffic.

Defeats the purpose of a roundabout.

I have traveled throughout the UK for years where round-a-bouts well facilitate the flow of traffic. Bend's problem is that people don't know how to properly navigate these traffic circles.

People don't signal out of roundabouts. That's the issue. Traffic would move if people would use their signals... They're better off putting up signs as you approach to remind people to signal out.

ABSOLUTELY NOT!!!! Big mistake and reversed on East coast congested round-d-rounds. Reverted to slower traffic movement prior to signal lights. Bend receiving Gov. test money only!!! Don't buy into it

Are you freakin' kidding me?? The whole point of circles is to keep traffic moving. Meters would completely RUIN that concept!! May as well go back to stop signs. Who comes up with these dumb ideas??

Sounds like an idiotic question only the greedy snubs at the City of Bend would proposed. Now - traffic is jammed, and we need better choices & Roads?

Why on earth would you think putting meter lights on a roundabout would be a good idea? Bend would be better served with large signs in English and Spanish telling people how to use their blinkers!

The reason there is a problem is that they made them too small in diameter. Another example of the lack of planning by the city leaders, much like the very expensive Junipter Ridge mess.

Putting art in the middle also didn't help. an inside lane for small cars to travel around would have been nicer.

We were told roundabouts, the engineers said, would make the traffic better . Now that's not true and we need to waste more money on lights to make traffic safer. We should of only put lights

The roundabout isn't the problem. I've been through hundred around Europe. It's the people here who don't signal out of it that causes hesitation and delay for many users. So frustrating.

Very experienced mentor left their jobs in the fire service and nursing. They already had natural immunity, which made the vaccine pointless.

I do not know anyone personally affected, but in a way we are all affected! I am vaccinated and I think it is the best way to get the horrible Democrats socialist control freaks off our backs, but it is NOT the American way to be forced into something! We have got to get rid of the Biden and Brown!

I voted(?) this way because ... I don't know anyone affected by the mandate. But I don't understand people's resistance to this. Consider mandates we all accept without complaint: stop signs, seat belts, motorcycle helmets. Come on, people. Get the shot, Keep yourself and the rest of us healthy.

I know several people that have had strokes and other serious side effects from this vaccine, people get the jab before researching it
