Circling around the real problem

In response to "Roundabouts: Circles of death" (Sept. 21, Letters): The writer countered his own statement and answered it by saying that it is not roundabouts having problems with drivers; it's drivers having problems with roundabouts.

Roundabouts are no more or less a problem than the driver who sees a stop sign but does not stop. Same goes for a speed limit sign and the driver going 15 mph over the posted speed. It goes on and on with drivers paying no attention or not understanding what these signs are posted for. I assure you, neither cities nor the Department of Transportation install these signs for their health or to waste taxpayers' money.

A number of drivers need to spend a few minutes every year looking over the DMV handbook. It just might surprise yourself with new information or laws you had forgotten.
