Many of us wonder why the city put in these roundabouts. We have three to traverse every day and they are "circles of death." People do not yield; they just drive into them with no concern for cars already in and accidents take place. Crosswalks are another issue. When you turn into a side street and have to stop for people, your back end is exposed to oncoming traffic that flies into these roundabouts! At night, these circles become racetracks and you hear tires squealing and motors racing.
The new high school has two roundabouts, and they are accidents and death waiting to happen. The street planners have made another wonderful error and spent who knows how much for very unsafe road conditions.
