Add Comment Comment Share with friends I think roundabouts are just so convenient and keep the flow of traffic going. They also force people to slow down without completely stopping.

Show Less 10 Comments 1 Louise Baker Considering the cost of other roadwork fixes I think round abouts are beneficial & good to keep traffic moving & help to keep speeding down. Right turn signals need to be observed. Reply Reply 0 Marcia Y I really like the roundabouts. But it would be nice if people USE their blinkers on the exits. From my DMV book said: making any turns (left or) RIGHT You use your blinkers. I've had my license 49 yrs Reply Reply 0 Dave Voiles When they are built correctly I like them. They save energy. Why stop at an intersection if you don't have to? Stop signs waste gas, brakes and time when there are no other cars in the intersection. Reply Reply 0 k san Love them! Mostly, because they keep traffic moving and they keep traffic moving. Also, they keep traffic moving! That is the main function of them, isn't it? Reply Reply 0 Janet Rawlings They are safer! Reply Reply 0 Richard Cooper They are efficient if only people would signal it would make them more so. Reply Reply 0 Jeff Sorrick Roundabouts are one the most efficient and cost effective way to move traffic in certain conditions. I just wish our city traffic engineering dept would consider more multiple lane roundabouts. Reply Reply 0 Rebecca Dobrowski The safest and fastest intersection. Avoids t-bone accidents.

At least the masses understand the rules around traffic lights...it seems like everyone has their own idea of how a roundabout works. Just put a traffic light in!

Show Less 5 Comments 0 Kathryn Kinney Evans Round abouts or traffic circles, which ever, were made for people who have no idea how to negotiate a 4 way stop!! I personally hate them and try to avoid them if at all possible! Reply Reply 0 Thom Porterfield Roundabouts make entering the streets adjacent to them extremely difficult and unsafe, because there is a constant stream of traffic with no gaps, therefore causing congestion and irritable drivers. Reply Reply 0 Brandee Mode Every time I have almost been in an accident it was in around about. It is difficult to tell when it's your turn to go and even when it is, you frequently only have a few seconds to get out there. Reply Reply 0 Vernon Budd People don't use turn signals when exiting & they won't slow down & use common sense Reply Reply 0 Matt Because many drivers use roundabouts as a four way stop which is pointless! Drivers continue to back up traffic because they don't know how to enter or exit the roundabouts. Reply Reply k san Those people shouldn't have licenses.
